LEDs Rooflight

At some point I decided to replace the traditional roof light bulb with several LEDs. No apparent reason, I was just feeling creative 🙂 I used 5x 5mm white LEDs on a plastic ring with an appropriate resistor. The resulting light intensity was a bit improved but nothing special. I believe that in the near […]

LED Taillights (Ver.2.0)

So I purchased off eBay plenty of high power 5mm red and orange LEDs, and started experimenting on a new taillights look. After taking my taillights apart, I discovered that each taillight is separated […]

LEDs front indicators

LED side lights

The originally 5W small bulb used for side lights (1st stage of the lighting switch) was replaced by LED(s). This simple mod was revised several times so far. The first version was poorly made by a single 5mm white LED and a resistor inside the bulb holder’s base. The next version was based on the […]
