Lights Update to my Warwick.


Updating my lights and sealed beam headlights to LED.

The back lights come out as expected, almost twice as bright all round, however the front is much more exiting.

One side done, the other side for comparison.

Sidelights.....

Headlights..

And amber indicators..

I've used Daylight running light bulbs from Amazon to replace the 21/6 regular front indicator bulb. These turn the white sidelight off when the amber flasher is in use.

KaTur 1157 7528 BAY15D 1016 1034 Switchback LED Bulbs White/Amber High Power

Although these are a direct plug-in they are longer then the original, so the glass cover has to be spaced off by using a foam insert about half an inch deep. You will also need to update the flasher unit to one compatible with LEDs. The original flasher uses the impedance of the bulb to determine the flash rate. Led's have almost no impedance, so they flas very quicly. Either add a resistor to the load or use the appropriate electronic flasher.

The difference in light output is staggering! The LED headlights seem to have a good beam pattern with an acceptable cutoff in dip mode.

And no white indicators.

Hi evening Frank
What's the legality of these. Confused me on what you can have in the UK

I'm not expecting any problems.

Retrofit HID headlights are specifically prohibited, but these are all plug-compatible LED bulbs.
If I do get any grief with the headlights, I can easily go back to Halogens.

I've also used headlights with sidelight, so I still have a white light at the front when indicating.

I just got fed up with dim repro sealed beams, the vibration kills them very quickly, and they are not so easy to get now.
These also have a much better beam pattern and dip cutoff than the reproduction tripods.

Looking good Frank!

Visibility in traffic these days is so important.

Hmmm. Another bright idea that I may steal (see what I did there?biggrinbiggrin)

On another subject, Frank, what bracketry have you used to fit your fog/driving lights? I'm intending to fit spots too but, at present, am uncertain as to how to mount them.

Easy peasy (on the Warwick).

It's the shiny nut but on the bonnet pivot plate, behind the bumper tube, nice and rigid, they don't wobble about.

They are original Lucas sealed beam halogen, and I just rotated the lens 90 degrees, and added a sidelight bulb while I was there.

I'm going to take them off this winter when I reinstate the bumpers, and I don't need them with these new headlights.

Nice, Frank but obviously not going to work for me. No doubt I'll come up with something else.

they did a similar type spot/fog light that had a central fixing out of the back of the lamp on an "eyeball" swivel arrangement. those would work better for you Mike.

IMHO repro tripods are crap, focal length is all wrong.

I had a pair of original PL's from an auto jumble re-silvered, well worth it...but then I got my ultimate, Marchal's from a wreck I dragged in. these are excellent, re silvered again and the light beam is just right

AND they dip centrally so perfect for Europeanuse toobiggrin

Thanks, Nigel. I've seen the rear mount spots but I was slightly worried that vibration might be an issue. (Vibration in a Peerless? Who'd have thought?)

I'm actually wiring the driving lights to come on with main beam so I'd like them to be stable.

Can I ask where you got your PL's and Marchals re-silvered? I've got one original PL and the other may be kicking around somewhere so that might an option rather buying the repo items.

As the name suggests, managerial accounting is basically about managing and organizing the company's esteem, work, and internal organs with a sharp and effective framework. It is a branch of accounting which concerns about measuring and identifying the internal ongoing process which upholds the external goodwill of the company and smooth operational structure.

The other accounting branches are focused on the cost-effective, profit, and loss angle of the company, this heads upto the working and organizing of the company. However, there are points or certain regulations that are needed to be followed to achieve the best working strategies. You need to look at some steps or points to seek Managerial Accounting Help:

I knew you were going to ask that Mike. I will try and find his name. I used to see him at all the jumbles etc and drop them off/pick them up over the year.

Sadly, jumbles are a rarity in my neck of the woods with the Glamis Extravaganza being the only one really worth visiting. I think most traders don't see a return in traveling all the way to Scotland to what are relatively small scale events in comparison to those held down south. I wish it were otherwise but I can't see it happening, especially now.
