Looking through some more old photo's I ran accross this one from the ad I had placed when selling the rig. Not really a closeup of the lights, but you might get a feel for the stainless inserts and also the red and amber lights.

Being a devil's advocate (aka PITA)

The 7" LED assemblies from http://www.led-r-us.com/sttlights.shtml have more LED's (60 for red @ $35.95, 80 for amber @ $39.95) than Alligtech. However the lens doesn't diffuse/hide the LED's as well.

You guys have me thinking. I am going to give my 02 Journey a "Full Body Paint" this summer, and I believe I am going to glass up the indentations where the lights sit now smooth, and then flush mount the 7" round LED's.

I kinda think this will look better, but to each his own. I am fortunate that I am able to do work like paint and body work.

Well after doing some searching, I found some oval 6" red and amber lights that I am going to use to replace the current lights on my 02 Journey.

While the price is more than right since they are on clearance, I am using red and 2 amber for each side. You can see them at this link, http://www.doranmfg.com/clearance-led.htm.

I am still going to have to find some oval clear back-up lights. I am also going to finish the rear cap off smooth in preparation of mounting the LED's. I will probably mount them on a 25-35 degree angle, to change it up a little.

I will post some pics when I get finished.

Hi Bob.

Thanks for posting your progress about the tail light conversion. I'm still aways away from doing it but want to do it so bad so I'll get to it eventually.

What is Summit Products producing for you? ...the stainless polished plate? Do you think that is the best way to go? So they're doing all four for $105? That sounds like a great price for all four ...how about their shipping cost? Will they polish the edges they they won't appear rough cut? I might just place an order for them now while they're doing yours. Who is the contact person there I should talk to and does he have an email address?

Will the light from the LEDs reflect a bit off of the polished plate? If so, it would definitely be a nice effect.

Another question regarding the turn signal portion of the project. I was talking to a friend of mine who dabbles a bit in automotive wiring. He was telling me that when retrofitting cars with LED signal lamps, a resistor or some other type of diode might me needed or when the turn signal is activated they will start to blink very fast as if a bulb was burned out. This is because an LED needs/uses so much less power that it senses that a bulb is burned out and acts accordingly. Do you think that will be a problem in this application? If so, what diode will you be using and where should it be placed?

If Joe or Gary are still reading this thread, maybe either of you can chime in and give a response to my inquiries too.

Thanks!

No problem with my rig hooking the A.L. Lightech units directly to the coach wiring. No resistors or diodes were needed.

Hello,
If there is enough interest in the stainless steel taillight trim pieces, then I believe help save a few dollars. I work for Summit Products. We proudly make the stainless accent kits seen on the new Winnebagos along with several other coach manufacturers.
Someone asked if the edges would need to be polished. The short answer is no, the laser cut edges should be perfect (not a plasma nor a shear).
If we can get 5 orders for these tail light accents, then the price would be $62 per set of four pieces.
