    Not sure... I'm behind on everything again but I'll let you guys know when I have more finished.
    I'll be doing some of my original design as well as some using the new leds too.

    I know you're busy but if those plug and play LED Cargo lights could be ready by the end of November, it would be great :p

    I've been working on 2 yes TWO sets of cargo's. :yes:

    One is my regular 5mm led version while the other is my newest superflux led version that's even brighter (but a bit more expensive)

    Cool :) I guess the price varies and they are in various stages of completion?

    The basic "original" style cargo or all red 3rdBL's run $50 +sh/ins where the "new" style run $75 +sh/ins.

    I'm hoping to have a couple of 'em done about the middle-end of next week.

    so the only difference is brightness between the styles? they mount and look the same? Pics will be up when they are done>?
  8. OP

    buggman Do not touch the trim!

    Outsides look virtually the same & the new style are even brighter :)

    I have the oem connectors for both of these, so they'll be plug-n-play.

    How do you do the Directional; Version of the 3rd Brake Light ?

    Sinister04Fx4 Everything is a project.

    So it's been a while since I've been on here... but of course I just had to find out what Mr. LED was up to. And I am in love. I wish I could haz.

    Depends on if it's a cargo or all red.

    For the cargo's, it's a bit more involved as I have to fit in 2 circuits in the same space, one for the white cargo led's & one for the red or yellow turn signal led's.
    The all red ones are a little easier as I can just wire the outer sections into the turn signals & the center as normal into the brakes.
    I've been looking at a way to have the entire red area light up with the brakes & have the outer sections alternate with the turn signals on/off. Still need to do some more work on that idea though :rolleyes:

    The turn signals will wire into the tail lights or front turn signals, whichever is easier for the person installing them.
    My 3 bulb tail wiring was pretty easy as the turns are separate from the brakes. The 2 bulb tails should be similar, but I haven't tested my turn signal mod on one yet.

    So IF you want LED Cargo AND LED Directionals, then that could be a problem in space available ?

    I didn’t even think of directionals and cargo, that could be interesting.

    The wiring is the thing that will stop people.
  16. OP

    buggman Do not touch the trim!

    Yeah, it gets really tight in that small space.
    I've done one cargo + turns, I had to reduce the number of led's for both circuit to fit in enough of both colors to be easily visible. It was still pretty bright, but not quite as bright as the plain cargo or all red versions.
