On the public holiday (thank you dear ANZACs) I decided to finally get a project done – modifying my reverse lights from a single globe to double LED panels. Yes. That is correct. This was relatively simple, merely time consuming. All I needed was:
LED panels (ebay!)
Solder kit (mate lent me his)
Reverse lights (I bought a spare set from a wreck to practice on/in case something went wrong)
screw driver.I’ll let the pics speak for themselves.
Polish up the lenses with Glassylite!
Practice solder and tape with an old LED panel
Accidentally snapped the wiring while stripping the plastic so had to resolder it together.
Two panels together. 48 LED x 2 … hehehe This is just for one side!
Stuck it in the civic to test out the soldering – PERFECT!
Plug in, tape up the wiring, glue the bottom and put into position – wait around 30-60min to set.
We have a winner.
Also, picked this up on Friday….heeee heeeee heeeeee
And stuck this guy in the car too! However as I predicted, his head is too heavy and there’s no good surface to mount him in the 34’s dash. So I found an even better place…he sits IN the ashtray now (pics later!). Thanks mate!
And a quick note: King springs + Bilsteins have arrived. Now waiting for some cash + HICAS lock bar and then I can send Mr Skyline into the shop!
