RE: [DML] Looking for the definitive LED Taillight part numbers



I had a lot of problems with my original boards, I tried the nut & bolt 
method and that worked for a short time, and soldering can sometimes fix the 
problem as long as you don't have any breaks or cracks in the board. I 
finally bought Rob's new boards and I can honestly say that they are
worth it for the peice of mind.
You never know when your lights are working back there or not and I remember 
getting
pulled over by the fuzz because one of my lights was out - which gives them 
a lame reason
to pull you over.
Rob's boards fixes this for good, and the connection is better so the bulbs 
are brighter.

As most of you know I sell kits of LED's, and I have tried just about every 
sort of LED
bulbs with our tail lights and nothing looks as bright as the originals.
The running lights look OK, but the others don't look right.
The reason is because our lenses are designed to use a regular bulb that 
emmits lights
from all angles, and the reflectors magnify the light and spread it out.
There are LED clusters that have a special ring of lights that runs around 
the edge
of the LED lights to create an outside light to the reflectors, but you just 
can't see them
in the daylight. Bottom line, you would spend way over $100 to solve the job 
that $10 could do better. You can bet your life that if I thought I could 
sell them without complaint I would!
I will not sell anything that I think someone will not like.
I have ZERO returns of any of my items.
SO that said, the only solution would be a custom made board with a layer of 
LEDS that
covers the entire surface area of the lens, and the reflector removed from 
the lens.
This would be expensive, but if the demand is there it can be done.....

Bottom line, get Rob's boards and put really bright 1156's bulbs in there 
with some
white grease to prevent corrosion.
