Hi there,

First of all, compliments on your design of the LED boards, just beautifull (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumb3d.gif)

Would it be possible to get a complete set sent to The Netherlands, Europe?

If yes, I'm in for: Front Euro w/blanking $140 + ?, and Rear Brake RED and Turn Amber $180 + ?

I don't know what the P&P will be but I reacon you're going to let me know about that.

Hope we can work things out, I'll be waiting patiently,

Thank you,
Skip


Shipping to Europe is not an issue. I sent some LEDs to Germany last year through US postal service. It was less expensive than UPS/Fedex but tracking sucked. I would recommend one of the main carriers. If you know a good way to ship, please let me know.


I would rather go for a good, reliable carrier and having the products here safe & sound than not knowing if they would ever arrive instead of saving a buck or two.
Just let me know what the total costs will be.

Thanks, Skip

Lately, I've sold stuff to the UK, Denmark, Italy, France, Germany and Australia. USPS has worked just fine for me. Nothing special, just packed carefully.

Making some progress on the front lights. Going slower than I hoped. These more complicated to make than the rears because of the blanking circuit and that the LEDs must be soldered with the body of the LED 115mils off the board so they can be pointed forward when mounted on the vehicle.

If you're still taking orders, I'd like to request front turn signals, rear turn signals, and brake lights, all US spec. Thanks!

Yes, still taking orders. These boards take a long time to assemble and thus we'll be doing this for a few months. Requests are handled in order so we'll be in touch via PM when we're ready to make boards for you.

A couple of folks have had issues installing the bulb bases into the existing sockets. Much of the difficulty has to do with the existing socket which is over 40 years old and may likely have suffered from aging and moisture. This makes the bulbs hard to install/remove and can affect the electrical connection to the bulb.

This is a good time to do some preventive maintenance on the socket to improve electrical connectivity and ease installation of the LED bulb bases or even the standard bulbs.

Here's an example of a bulb with severe oxidation and crud that came off of my 930. This bulb was so hard to remove that I thought the bulb was going to break in my hand as I removed it. Likewise the socket looked in the same condition. I connected an LED board for the 911 in its place and it didn't light up at all. I had to clean the socket with a wire wheel on my Dremel before the LEDs would light up.

After cleaning the socket with a wire wheel, or scraping the crud with a small screwdriver, dielectric grease like this one are available at your FLAPS for less than $2 goes a long way to improving electrical contact and easing installation of bulbs/LEDs.

I've been thinking of ways to provide a handle to help assist the installation of the bulb bases. Thought about a piece of metal, wood, or plastic but nothing seemed to fit the bill.

Then I tried a piece of circuit board. Seems like it would give a good grip for installation and would not short out the wires if they touched. What I did was chop up some old boards we had lying around work. I will try this on these boards.

Would it take away from the product if I used old circuit boards for the handles? I could state that we're using recycled materials to be more ecologically friendly. Your feedback is welcome.

That'd be great! I buggered up one of my tail light bulb bases trying to get a good grip so it would turn and engage in the socket. This "green solution" is a great idea!

Bundle me, please! Additionally, you can put my LED assemblies at the tail end of your build schedule. I won't be needing them until next fall at the earliest.

This is the right thread. Got you on the list from the previous thread.

It's been slow getting all the cogs going for this project. Just received the first batch of clips for the fronts and rears. Things are going to start happening now. I gotta get my own 3d printer. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

I'm good with it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Are you going to glue the boards into the bulb bases?
