When i get some orders... haha
But really. I want to seal them back up and make sure everything is good before i can sell them. The last the thing i want to is to spend so much time making them, and find out that there's a defect in my wiring. I've ran the leds with my variable power supply and it seems to run good. I just have to make my voltage regulartor and i should be set. I don't want to sell the item until I can vouch for myself.

No one has commented on the idea of tinting the lens.

There's been a hold on the tail lights. It just hit me that i want a higher level of quality. Although right now it is very good, i'm not satisfied with the board. I am pretty anal, and like things perfect. I'm going to find another board that has the solder points on them. Right now, the boards i have don't have the solder points so i have to use alternative methods to solder it. I also decided that i don't want the outer ring for parking. I want to keep the oem look, so i'm planning to use a PWM to set a dimmer setting for parking, and a voltage regular to have full brightness when shipping. So when my parking light is on, then i'll be dim, when i'm braking, it'll be bright.

The project has been driving me nuts. I've just purchased another 2 lots of leds (120 leds in total). That way i should be ready for the next project. I've also placed an order with my supplier for the pwm kits. Now i just need to stop by fry's and see what the have that i can use. Just when i thought i was done with my project, i stop myself to improve it. It doesn't look like i'll finish by the 3rd.

I just finished redoing the leds with a new board. I'm VERY happy with the results. The leds now sit a little more flush and stay put. These boards are perfect. Here's a quck video of it.
I'm taking orders now, so shoot me a PM and i'll let you know the details. Parts are pretty expensive for this project. The board alone is 69 a peice, the leds are around $.50 each. The control modules arn't cheap either.

Enjoy.
