LED replacement bulbs for rear lamps


Recommended Posts

Decided not to make the specials to fit TS2's (now modified to take other LED bulbs) rear tail lamps for the following reason:

Roughly half way down the red glass lens of the repro units (which I belive TS2 is fitted with) is a moulded magnifying lens, which is on the same horizontal plane as the filament in the original bulb position (sloping downwards). Phil has re-positioned the bulb holder to be nearer the top (I assume) & now horizontal. Thus the bulb filament (or LED cluster) will now not be in line with the magnifying lens.
With this setup any bulb I make will perform no better than any other, as the light source is in the wrong place. This maybe is why Phil was dissapointed in the results he got.

I have made the 2 bulbs to fit the lamps units prior to modification, & will send them to Phil, he can then decide whether to undo the mod, & fit them, now, later, or never !
