LEDs for Obsidian71's Tail Lights
#1
As some of you may know I've been working on LEDs for Obsidian71's tail lights. I was working on them today and I figured out I ordered the wrong resistors so I'm kinda stuck waiting for the correct ones. I still have a few things to figure out and I had a few questions for you guys.

1: I would like to know how many people want sequential turn signals as the circuit to do so is giving me some issues. I can do it but its more complex and costly, I just want to get an idea I'm not trying to discourage anybody from wanting them.

2: Would you guys want a complete product or a DIY kit where you'd do a lot of the soldering? I suppose I could offer both, once again just trying to get an idea. If I get enough interest I'll send out my prototype and have a printed circuit board made. That should make things easier and hopefully cheaper.

3: Its kinda a dumb question but how bright do you want the reverse lights?

Thanks for the interest and patience.

I'm interested in these tail lights. They look awesome. I'm not stuck on the sequential lights. Honestly the final price is going to determine if I can buy them. Do you have a ballpark idea how much we're talking about? Thanks...

I was thinking literally doing the exact same but after reviewing the post about this and the the custom tail lights already being developed I figured I would wait and see your ideas first. If I do a custom set I will be incorporating sequential turn signals and some other display features if I can. However if You can make a board set custom shaped to the lenses and all I have to do is 3 weeks of soldering and I can isolate the circuits as I see fit I would be interested in the time savings for sure!

So my opinion is if we really want it and it is becoming extremely hard for production requests let us make our own light controllers, if we can't and we want them bad enough we will fork out the dough.

So for some of the more tech oriented maybe just the light housings, boards, and some package set of LEDs is all we would need. If you get committed orders you could buy them in bulk and save us some money and make yourself some. That's the order id be interested in.

Yea, Though I cruise through the valley of the Shadow of Rice, I will fear no Turbo, For Thine Torque art with me. Thy forged rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a strip before me in the presence of four cylinder enemies: thou anointest my heads with high octane; my quarter mile victories runneth over.

Surely Horsepower and RPM's shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will race on the streets and strips forever.

In my case I'd probably be interested in a diy kit if it saved enough money. I'd actually prefer one but sometimes it just doesn't make sense the way these things get priced. I want sequential, but again it depends on the cost. Mine will end up sequential either way. I have a spare circuit from doing the same on my trans am which I'll likely run if you don't do it.

So I guess the answer is it matters. You know what I want and what I would get would depend on what you decide to charge.

Once you make some ROI, I'd like to play with lenses only, no electronics. They might look ok as they are with my leds around the outside already installed.
I'd need a clear centre lens for my yellow blinker. (Au laws).

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm probably just over thinking everything right now, I'll get this prototype going and I'll figure out production as I go along. I want to make them as easy as I can while being what you guys want. I have a brick of about 1000 red LEDs so that's not going to be a problem for a while. I'm looking at $150-$200 for a set of non-sequential LED boards ready to go out of the box. As for the sequential tails I'm unsure at the moment because I haven't built a good working circuit yet.

Here's what I have so far:

The lenses themselves are clear and I think you can order a set from Obsidian71.

Final price is the determining factor for me , but I wouldn't mind a DIY kit.

Would love to have one that is truly sequential with all three lights flashing.

Dude......That's awesome.

I'd be interested to see how you get around having issues with the turn signals since we generally can't use LED b/c the low voltage screws with blinkers.

I'd be up for a full kit if around $100.

Can't see the need to have to change to an led blinker relay at this stage as there are other filament current drawing globes for the front and side....
