Default My New Mod. The most Bad @$$ 3rd Brake light

Well I decided to do my first LED retro so all my exterior lighting will be LED.

First for the Parts I used. The Brake lights I used 42 Phillips Lumileds at approximately 5 lumens each that's a 210 Lumen Brake light.

Voltage regulator is a Sharp PQ12RD21 which is a 12v regulator.

For the Cargo Lights I used 2 Cree XT-E LEDs one on each side. Driven by a LUX Drive 700mA Flex Block. The cargo lights will be about 500 lumens. I will have some TIR style optics on them so the light is more focused.

Well here are the pictures



To give you an idea of brightness this is how bright they are with 9 LEDs lit up



This was from across the room with all 42 lit up



Some look slightly different I think its the iphone camera doing that



This is in direct sun light It looks brighter in person




These are the Cargo lights









This is the drive




More will come later when I get the stuff to finish them up. Let me know what you think

I will also be modding my remaining 2 cree xt-e LEDs into my OHC and also getting some more for the mustang dome light.

2 other things that will be added to the Brake light/cargos will be a module similar to whelen signal alert steady so the brake light will strobe very quickly for about a second before going solid.

And the cargos are going to be wired so I can turn them on independently from the dome light and also make it so it can be on with the dome light I will use a On/off/On switch to a relay for that function.

What module are you going to use to replicate the signalert?
