New projects are LED boards for the TR6 and Spitfire.

Interestingly when I made the first boards and shared online, received many comments on why I used the bulb bases with handles. Turns out the bulb sockets on the TR6 and Spitfire suck and I'm being gentle. These boards come with spade connectors for power and ring terminals for ground.

Also Triumph uses black wires for ground whereas Porsche uses brown wires for ground.

Beautifully restored TR6 belongs to a colleague's brother. LEDs on rear for brake, turnsignal, and reverse.

Are there any LED replacement bulbs for fog lights? I know the fog lights are pretty useless, but since I have Spoke’s other LED’s and J Audette’s headlights I would like similar lighting for the fogs.

looks like our fog lights use h3 bulbs -- plenty of h3 led fog light bulbs options showed up on google --

Ooo.. The front turn signals are available with black circuit boards now?!

BTW I love having LED bulbs. Accidently left my parking lights on for 2 hours this weekend and the car still started up. Pretty sure incandescent would have killed the much smaller than stock battery.

That's good to know.... didn't even think about that little nugget.

It's killing me not having the car ready for power. I want to turn these bad boys on so I can bask in their magnificence.

I'm sure that if you have a small battery, it would help. Back in the day, I left my dad's Westfalia lights on by accident all night. That thing had the same battery as what was stock in my 911 and with just the running lights on (headlights shut off with ignition like the 911s) it still started up.
