RE: [DML] Tail Lights



Geoff, 
The brads that hold the contacts to the board are 2 different kinds of metal
as well as the brad it self. It takes a special way to solder the 3 
dis-similar metals, so if you try it don't hold the heat to long on the
brad or the trace on the board will turn loose. I practiced on several
boards till I got it right and it is worked out good so be careful.
On the contacts, don't sand except with something like a 400 grit emery
strip. Contacts have a small amount of silver on them to help prevent rust
and to enhance the contact connection. If you sand them you will take off
all the silver.

Thanks! My tail light boards seem to be in good condition, it's just
the connectors that seem a bit dirty/oxidized and perhaps a bit loose.
I was hoping a good cleaning would improve things a bit. A friend
suggested trying to sand the metal contacts a bit to remove what's
ever on the surface. Might give this a try if cleaning alone doesn't work.
