Great. The values sound pretty standard. I wonder if that single 150 Ohm is getting pretty hot. Probably you have already used a beefy resistor.

Normally, I use 100 with 4 LEDs, but due to size constraints used 3. Since usage ain't continuous, it should work fine. FZ tail lamp is always ON in park mode, no damage since [angel]

LH wiper starts peeling up.

2019-07-28 16-01-17.jpg


Replaced with the same. Minda Soft Wiper Blade 12"
MRP ₹ 170.00. Got for ₹ 150.00.

Repainted wiper arms.

2019-07-28 16-32-15.jpg


New dome light LEDs.

2019-07-28 15-38-24.jpg


Mark caused by hanging softies.

2019-07-28 15-39-47.jpg


Old 0.5 W setup, which wasn't bright enough for the power consumption. Also had that violet hue, which I hated.

2019-07-28 15-38-31.jpg


Replaced with new gen SMD 0.5W leftover from an old project. 0.5 x 9 = 4.5 W.

2019-07-21 17-09-07.jpg
2019-10-20 13-06-00.jpg


Bright enough.

2019-10-19 22-54-01.jpg
2019-07-28 19-35-57.jpg


Number plate lights replaced as well. They were 6 SMD each of 0.2 W per side, which conked off over time. Replaced with 0.5 W as well.

2019-07-28 13-08-36.jpg


Super bright. Would increase resistance value to dim it a bit.

This is one of the main reason why I stopped using Minda wipers blades. I didn't had similar issue with any other brands. Once, even within a month the new set of blades started peeling away. [frustration]

Check date. More than a year old peels off. Only this one peeled off. Rest all doing fine. This was 2016 make bought in 2018.

How long did the old blades last bro ? @deville_56
Almost a year. Driver side still the same.

August 2020 - Tachometer Backlit Replacement

Seven years since the install and red backlit started failing one by one. Recap > Tacho Install on Estilo.

Pulled out the tacho.

2019-08-05 10-50-43.jpg


How I stuck the scavenged LED strip over stock LEDs.

2012-05-10 16-08-38.JPG


Stock amber LEDs.

2019-08-05 11-09-56.jpg
2019-08-05 11-15-31.jpg


New LED strip to scavenge LEDs.

2019-08-05 11-17-47.jpg


Removed stock amber.

2019-08-05 11-38-20.JPG


Generation gap. Same type LEDs. Half or one third thick. More lens surface area as well.

2019-08-05 11-43-17.JPG


Soldered in place instead of previous jugaad.

2019-08-05 11-46-05.JPG


Done and tested.

2019-08-05 11-59-51.JPG


Ready for reassembly.

2019-08-05 12-17-21.JPG


Wires glued in.

2019-08-05 13-12-07.JPG


Board installed back.

2019-08-05 13-12-44.JPG


Then the cup and screws.
2019-08-05 13-13-08.JPG

2019-08-05 13-18-30.JPG


3M tapes for the job.

2019-08-05 13-26-58.JPG


Glass and frames.

2019-08-05 13-19-53.JPG


Needle. Don't install them without getting it to proper 0.

2019-08-05 13-21-17.JPG


Wire up.

2019-08-05 13-22-39.jpg


Turn on the ignition and then off and it will rest in proper 0 and then install the needle.

2019-08-05 13-25-25.jpg


Fit the frame,

2019-08-05 13-28-27.jpg


the glass,

2019-08-05 13-28-46.jpg


and finally the outer cover.

2019-08-05 13-29-06.jpg


Fix it and voila. Done.

Super awesome. Since last year I had been thinking of Changing my Safari Default Meter Lights (Which are White and barely visible at dusk) to something like Amber or red. Not sure when I will gather my lazy self.
