Very cool. If you're any good at 3D modeling, seems like a good project for 3D printing. Otherwise you could get a mounting plate made from some thin sheet metal by SendCutSend.Recently I have been working on the HVAC plumbing but am waiting on 1 or 2 fittings for the lines under the fender. I am also in the process of making a drier mount given that the VA "bands" are horrible. Then I will also make mounts for the condenser to the radiator core support, however I am waiting on my new radiator before really doing too much.
I have been trying to decide what to do about my jacked up taillights, specifically the right side which evidentially got water in it at some point and corroded the crap out of the 2 red lenses. I determined that I had a couple of options:
1. Try and salvage what I have
2. Remove the 2 bad sockets and replace them with after market ones
3. Make LED taillight panels
Well after some thought I decided I would try my hand at #3. I did some research, watched some videos and ordered some supplies. I decided to try the back up light first since it is the smallest with 40 LEDs (outer lens gets 134 and the inner 160). Here are some pics, my issue now is figuring out how to mount the board in the housing. Sorry for the blurry pics, my phone lens was dirty...
