would like to mod tail lights

so i was playin with the idea of modding my tails with leds. but i really want them to like alternate/flash when applying the brakes. and also would like to mod the turn signals to light up almost like the light on KIT from night rider. im thinkin this shouldnt be too hard to actually do, but i have no idea what i would need as far as relays or what-not to make it work. anyone know how to do this? (coughcoughlilmspreludecoughcough)

Re: would like to mod tail lights

I foresee this thread being dominated by lilmsprelude.

Haha, she should probably just be a moderator of anything electronics.

Edit:

To make something relevant, it would be legit to see done, and I would be interested in how to do it also.

Re: would like to mod tail lights

Well you're in luck, considering Renee is pro-actively compiling a list of LED projects to create a DIY about.... Just give it a little time, and maybe shoot her a PM.

AIN'T Gonna Happen Sparky. Yes, I can design a circuit to do this (quite easy really, BUT what you are asking for is reserved for emergency vehicles only, aka: Against The Law.

No relays, just a 555 chip and a small supporting circuit. The new(er) mustangs do this. I believe you can have up to three progressive flashes, LEGALLY.
More coming on this VERY SOON!.
(Read what dbd said.)




I'm just waiting for an order of L.E.D.'s to get here. And I need to go buy a bread board.........

Re: would like to mod tail lights

i want the turn signals like the ones on these headlights. but for applying brakes not really a strobe but more like flickering/alternating. this is hard to explain.

Same here :(


Also, I'm in the process of putting some SuperFlux LEDs in a spare set of 4g tails I have laying around. I wanted to go with sequential turn signals (like the new mustangs) but there just isn't enough length to the turn signal to make it worth doing.

Re: would like to mod tail lights

hehe..... I purchased some extra 4th gen tails as well.
But I would like to offer a differing opinion.....

I am going to attempt it, probably with 3 10mm L.E.D.'s... IF I can find them in amber-- Cuz I REALLY want to do the amber delete. The trick will be to install a mirror between each section to keep the flashing seperated. More on this soon.....

Re: would like to mod tail lights

That would be so sweet to get turn signals like the new mustangs!
And to that youtube video thing, i think what it does at 35 seconds would prolly not be very legal to be honest.

Re: would like to mod tail lights

Ditto...the new mustangs(yes, I know its an older style brought back) have probably the coolest turn signals I have seen on a car.

Why 10mm? Why not with a 4 leg (SuperFlux style) LED?

Also, I just had a bangin' idea. . .

Instead of making two boards of solid color (white and amber for reverse and turn, respectively), just make a single board with the two different colors in like a checkerboard pattern (on their own power leads, however) so that your amber can illuminate that entire lens portion, and your reverse lights have the potential to be massive sunburners.

Re: would like to mod tail lights

10mm (Domed) L.E.D.'s are more directional.. their pattern is about 45 degrees I believe.
(and cheaper.. lol)

4 post, aka SMD's, are a broader pattern (usually) and would be great for brakes and reverse.

NOT a bad idea with the dual purpose tho... I LIKE how you think!

Yesh... yesh indeedy!

I could still use the 10mm for the turns and do the reverse lights with the SMD's -- HOLY Hell! I think you just hit the JACKPOT!

I'll have to show you some pictures of some dual color LED turn signals I made for my 240sx convertible a few years back.

The 4 post LEDs are available in a wide variety of viewing angles. The amber ones I have are either 60* or 70* IIRC. I have red/orange (genuine) SuperFlux LEDs that are 70* that I used in some other brake/tail applications.

You, sir, have just been rewarded for your galantry....

and your Great Ideas too! LOL

I have pretty much stuck to the acrylic domed L.E.D.'s simply due to ease of access and cost. I guess Ima going to need to get into the SMD's now?

Re: would like to mod tail lights

SMD's are notably different than the typical round T1, T1-1/2, etc. and the 4 post LEDs like the Pirahna, SuperFlux, etc. SMD's are mounted ON the surface of the circuit board, rather than through-hole like the round dome type 3mm, 5mm, 10mm and the 4 post LEDs.

Re: would like to mod tail lights

aha... I know what you are talking about now... Like these that I just got in the mail:


I have always referred to as a acrylic domed style or "Piranha's"... Sorry for the confusion..

The SMD's that I am thinking of require me to etch a c/b. I am afraid of (been burnt by) the acid etching process... lol...




sorry :(

Re: would like to mod tail lights

ok, the first video... DEFINATLEY can do that. I don't see any legal issues there.

the second video.. I bet it is illegal in MOST states in the US.

Either way you decide to go, you MUST check with your law enforcement FIRST! (State and City - and surrounding states if you ever travel)
I may build something like that, BUT, I would make the buyer sign a waiver releasing me from ANY liability.

Wow, that is amazing!
Most of those things would be illegal but some of them looked really awesome.

Re: would like to mod tail lights

VERY KEWL ADAPTATION of LED's!! Impressive!

I always wished I could have stayed in school and learned the programming portion of EE.
I am just a newb that understands a lil bit about electricity.

Links to AZDave and/or threads?
