I started today building PCB boards for my headlights, as I've been gathering supplies in the last few weeks.
I've spent over 450$ in lumileds in Red, and Amber. I've also bought multiple tail lights, headlights, and corners.
I started by opening up my headlights with the oven trick. 215 degrees worked for me. I first took some measurements and drew up what I think would be a good PCB circuit for the frontward facing amber turnsignals and running lights. This was previously a challenge to do in LED for a ranger due to the fact there are no quality solutions for plug-n-play bulbs up front.
Here is the design I have so far. I have it set with 56 superflux. My plan so far is to run the outer ring as my running lights with a voltage regulated 12V from a sharp-regulator. I will use the remaining interior LEDs for the turn signal circuit. I bought PWMs so I could make the LEDs dim, but I don't know if I want to do that. I ask for you opinions. This thread will progress as my project evolves.
It fits so perfect. I smiled so wide when I first put this cardstock inside of the lamp and imagined how the PCB would glow at night.
