So I got to thinking about a number of recent HW I’ve seen with window piece headlights (the Monte Carlo SS got me started, but there’s the CR-X above and the recent Mustang with head AND tail lights). It’s something that I’m hugely in favor of in general, but one thought led to another and I purchased a bunch of tiny LED’s on eBay. They came yesterday and the day before I had scored a couple extra CR-X’s at Target, so last night I drilled out one and stuck some headlights in it.
I led with the top picture because it kind of looks the best. Since this was just a test/proof of concept, I had to remove the window and interior to stick the LED’s and a coin cell battery in there. Here it’s a bit more obvious that there’s no window/interior:
And another with the room lights off:
I’m really pleased with these LED’s, because they’re quite small but still plenty bright. I bought a set of all different colors, so I’ll try some tail lights too, but I’m waiting on a few other parts before I can really tackle that.
I have kind of a long-term project in mind once I get a couple cars fully lit. I would love to have a Monte Carlo SS for that, so if anyone has one or two they want to trade, please let me know (preferably the black one from last year). Thanks!
