Re: Rain Guards for the ORVM!!!

Hi all,
Its been some time since mods, so I bought a pair of rain guard for the ORVM
I don't know whether these are effective or not.
Cost : US $2.25
Source : Ebay
These have 3M stickers, just peel off and apply. voila!!
the right side one came off after a few minutes after application. must reapply with new tape tomorrow.

So far so good
3M is good, the original came with one the guards was in dry condition so had to apply a new one. seems to be sticking good.
during driving the ORVMs are free from splatter but still the window glasses will have rain drops.
Altogether nice with a light drizzle when i can open the windows and drive. (earlier it was difficult with the rain droplets forming in the ORVM especially in night)

LED reverse lamps, LED cabin lamp

I too had a similar setup for the fog lights. The output at night is nothing of use at all. So used the fog lamps as DRL.
The fog lamps turned useless!! so I've reverted back to stock bulbs.

35K km on ODO

For quite some time I wanted LED's for reverse lamps, but the LED were not powerful enough.
recently got from ebay.com ($2.85 each) 4.5W
CREE type (I suppose so)

For removing the tail lamp assembly remove the screws

Then carefully pull the assembly to unlock from the body

The normal bulb (T20/W16W type 12V 16W)

Modifying the cabin light
Because of the low power output, i was planning to change the front cabin LED to CREE type.
source = ebay.com
Price = $ 1.85
Power = 7W (claimed by the seller)
