Default 60 LED SMD PCB Ranger Dome Light Project *Pics*

I bought some copper boards and 5050 SMD LEDs and I wanted to make a few dome lights for my trucks. I designed this circuit board in autocad, and made my own PCB board specifically designed to fit as many LEDs as you can into the ranger domelight.

Here are some photos from the project. I still need to solder the LEDs on as I type this.

Here is the design after first print.



Here I am test-fitting my design (just printed on standard inkjet/copy paper)


Here is the board after acid-etching it onto a piece of copper clad.


In final position (LEDs need to be soldered)


I will update the thread with photos and news as the project progresses.

What does yours have? The chrome surround? My 2004 came with the chrome surround style but the newer style is a direct swap. My 2003 currently has the chrome surround style. This particular domelight was bought in a FS thread from an RF or FRF member.

Holy crap, you could light-up a small runway with that setup. But anyway, good work.

You can see everything in the cab like daylight when it is dark out even.
