This is a group buy for front turnsignal bucket LED boards, rear tail/brake light LED boards, and rear turnsignal LED boards.

Please respond to this thread if you are interested. Purchase requests will be handled in order as they are recieved in this thread.

The only thing group buy of these boards are the bare PCBs. The boards are hand assembled one by one, tested and delivered as they are finished. I will not request payment until your PCBs are to be assembled. Time between payment and shipping should be about 2 weeks. This group buy will last several months so please be patient.

I will PM you when I am prepared to assemble your boards. If I PM you and your plans have changed, please let me know.

Front LED and rear LED boards will be shipped separately. Shipping for CONUS for front or rear LED boards is $10.

Installation of the rear LED boards.

For the brake/tailight PCB, 2 long straight clips go toward the inside of the car, one short clip on the outside of the car. Screw in screws so the clips are loose.

Click to view attachment

Click to view attachment

After removing the bulb and securing the LED bulb base, gently press in the board evenly side to side.

Click to view attachment

Once the board is seated, gently tighten screws until tight. Try not to overtighten.

Click to view attachment

For the turnsignal PCBs, screw in the 2 long clips with a bend on the side of the board with 2 holes. The side with one hole uses the largest clip mounted on the bottom of the board as shown. You can gently tighten the clips before mounting.

After removing the bulb and securing the LED bulb base, gently press in the board evenly side to side.

The clearance of the lens and the clips between the brake and turnsignal is very tight. Make sure the lens does not get caught on the clips. It should fit right between the clips.

Installation of the front turnsignal bucket LED boards.

There are 2 clips for each board. The small one goes in front the the long one on the rear.

Click to view attachment

Screw in the rear clip.

Click to view attachment

The small front clip mounts on the top of the board. These will be screwed in when I build the board. The bottom of the board will contact the bucket base to keep the board straight.

Click to view attachment

Here's the board ready for installation with the bulb base connected.

Click to view attachment

When installing the board, make sure the pigtail does not interfere with the rear clip.

Click to view attachment

Gently slide the board in. There are slots on either side of the board to clear the guides on the sides of the bucket.

Click to view attachment

Ready for the lens. The lens will hold the board in place. If you need to reposition the board, do not grab the LEDs as they will move. Use a paper clip or similar wire to pull the board out.

I am in for a front set option 3) Euro Version - w/Blanking: WHITE LEDs in clear of lens; Rest AMBER LEDs:

I remember seeing something about needing something additional to make the blinkers work if you have front and rear LEDs installed. Am I remembering correctly?
Steve Snyder
I would like a set of rear brake boards (just the brakes: $90 + shipping) and a set of front Euro turn signal boards with no blanking ($130 + shipping).
I do not need any seals, but thank you for making that option available.

I'm in for the following:

I am interested in the Euro Front amber/white, so that I may use the front light as a white running light and turn signal. I have no side turn signals up front, so I need the blinking capability. Is that what blanking is? Please explain. So, yes put me down for a front end Euro configuration. Thanks

Still in for:
Rear Brakes Lights (pr)
Rear Amber Turn Signals (pr)

Some comparisons of the rear LEDs with standard bulbs in daylight at about 25 feet away. Turnsignals:



Brakes in daylight. Brake lights were connected to flasher wire since my wife said sitting in the car hitting the brakes while I shoot the video was "stupid".



Turnsignals and Brakes in the dark:

Spoke
Some videos of the front LEDs. This is the Euro version.

First the turnsignals; then just the running light. For the turnsignal, the US lens is on. For the running light, the lens is removed.

I wanted to observe the angle of incidence on the LEDs. These LEDs have 15 degree 1/2 power angle. So for the turnsignals and running lights, I varied the angle of viewing from about +/- 45 degrees from the front of the car. I was about 30 feet away.



Now the running light with the US lens off.

Spoke
Here's one of the front LEDs with running light blanking. The running lights cut out immediately when the turnsignals light and stay off about 1 second after the turnsignals turn off.

Here's a close up of the blanking circuitry.

Click to view attachment

In this video, I'm using the EP36 flasher from AutoZone. The LED board is the only load on the flasher and it flashes at the expected rate.

Spoke
Here's a clip of the non-blanking front turnsignal. The clip also compares the LED turnsignal on the passenger side to the standard bulb on the driver side.

Light intensity measurements show the US LED front PCB turnsignals to be about 6x as bright as the existing bulb. The Euro version (48 LED vs 69 LED in US version) should be about 4x as bright as the existing bulb.

I would like a pair of the euro versions with blanking.

Thank you!

Hi there,

First of all, compliments on your design of the LED boards, just beautifull 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

You can do either US (all amber; LEDs on dimly with parking/headlights) or Euro (amber on top, cool white on the bottom; Whites are on brightly with parking/headlights). Depends on what look you want.

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.

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.

I have been waiting to post this for awhile.

I'm in for: Front Euro w/blanking $140; Rear Brake RED and Turn Amber $180!

Cant wait to add these to my project.

Thanks,

Spoke
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.
Briby37
I'm down for a full set, please. US for the front buckets and the rear brake light and turn signals. These are looking great!

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.
