only 1 set of 240Z LED Tail lights for sale!!

Recommended Posts

Any takers?

These will most likely out last your car or even you for that matter, They're brighter, cleaner and consume 80% less power thru the fusebox and switches.

So after all the camotion about people wanting LED tail lights that look stock, use a lot less power, and are brighter than stock, Not 1 person here is interested????

I guess I'll just bring them to MSA and sell them there. Once someone sees them in action, they'll be all over it for $225

I just figured that some one here wanted to have them in their Z before they went to the MSA event.

Last chance guys,

Dave.

Any takers? I built them for you guys, whats up?

If they don't sell before MSA, I'll bring them with me to the event, I know someone there will snag 'em up.

One concern I have is the quality of the lenses themselves (not your work). If mine are nicer than yours I'd be taking a step backwards. If not, the next guy will be. I couldn't really tell from your pictures how they look. As you know, most 240Z tail lights degrade over time, mainly on the left side above the exhaust. The "chrome" plated plastic part tends to get eaten away. I replaced my left side with a used unit that was in better shape than my original but I'd like something even better. I've seen people talking about repro lenses but those don't seem to come with the above-mentioned plastic part.

The lenses were torn apart, WET-SANDED with 1000 grit, polished w/ plastic polish. The chrome trim was the best of all that I had to choose from. They have minimal deteriation like you commonly see on the left side tail light.

The chrome was buffed out, the inner part was repainted the stock black, and the tabs were drilled out and tapped for screws instead of rusty holding clips.

I would Proudly put these on my own Z in a heartbeat, if I did'nt already have a set. After being told by more than 10 members that they wanted a set, and whatever price I chose would still be a great deal, I made a set. Just for one of those 10 people. Now everybody is being sceptical about it.

What's not to like, They're brighter, more power efficiant, the reverse light is even brighter and the lenses have been polished to a like new appearance.

I'll just take them to the MSA event, and there they will sell in a flash. I just figured that someone here would want first crack at 'em.

If I had a modified/moderized Z, I'd probably scoop these up. I'm just not sure how they would look on a stock/classic looking Z, or if I'd like that look. I bet they would sell very quickly over on hybridz.org.

I didn't mean to sound skeptical. In fact, now that you've described them more clearly I think I'd like them. However, I'd also like to make sure that my set is good enough for you in return. If you're interested I can take some pictures and send them to you.

Yeah, that's one of the issues that I have - I know for a fact that none of the 4 taillights I have are good enough for Dave to reuse for the next set.

That plus the fact that I still have LOTS of things to spend money on that are much more critical than LED lights.

Just the opposite Mike, I trust that you'll send a decent pair. If I was a customer of mine, I'd be picky as all hell. Thats how I run this home based business, by only making and selling things that even I would consider buying.

The chrome is NOT perfect but it did shine up pretty good. Besides, you'll be so blind from looking at the new lights that you won't be able to notice any imperfections in the chrome.

Mike, are you going to the MSA event? If you are, I can sell them to you then. After you get a good look at them. If that works better for ya, let me know.

If you think that your best chrome trim is better than whats on the LED lights, I can instal your trim onto the new lights, if that works for ya. I'm all about Customer satisfaction and making the customer happy with his/her purchase.

Send me your best set of lights with trim and the money order , I'll determine the best of each assembly and send you the final product. I need some extra cash due to gas prices, so I'll do what ever it takes to make it worth your while. If I don't take a vacation real soon, I'm apt to lose my mind.

Let me know,

Dave.

Does this cause any problem with the flasher relay(or whatever it is called)? I have heard that when switching to LED tail lights you need to run an electronic flasher relay so that you blinkers will still blink. By electronic I mean one that has a power lead going to it.

No, I'm not going to the MSA event. I am, however, planning on going to the Walter Mitty event at Road Atlanta which is the same weekend (two weeks from today, in fact). Unfortunately I only have the pair of lights that are currently on the car so I can't go without for very long and certainly need them for the event. It would work better for me if I sent you a money order, you sent me the lights, and then I sent you mine as soon as yours arrived. That way if there's a delay in the mail I not out of luck for the event. Let me know either here or via PM what you think.

I still have the original stock flasher in the Z. I also have L.E.D. sidemarkers as well as the LED tail lights. Every thing still works like normal.

I truthfully thought the same as you (VaGuS510) when it came to the flasher and was more than ready to swap the flash unit, but so far it has not been neccesary. Most likely because of the front bulbs still being there. I'm guessing that the bulbs give just the right amount of resistance to keep the stock flasher working correctly.

Mike, P.M. sent, but you probably already knew that.

Hi Dave, if I sent you a pair of 260 lenses, could you make me up a set like the 240 lenses?

thanks - joel

I could, but it'll take a while. I have to order the LED's from Hong Kong, and that takes two weeks to get here (Marysville, WA)

If you don't mind waiting for about 3 weeks after I finally get the taillights from ya. Same price though. It's a lot of work.

Just sticky note what you want as brakes and where you want the parking lights, before you send them and the Money Order.

Dave.

Dave, I'm ready to send you a set of Euro Spec 76 280z housings. Can you hook me up now that you have the bits...?

I have yet to find the AMBER LED's that the Euro-spec lights require. If you want to send the tail lightsand the check to me, I can start looking a lot harder. Having them on the shelf gives me a lot more MOTIVATION to get my arse in gear and get them back out the door. Money helps the process also.

I have been buying parts using my own money but that will only go so far if I don't get orders. You know what I mean.

E'mail me with the order so I can put the order into the correct file. It helps me with specifics when it comes to building. (ie: address, style (U.S. or Euro), year, brake and parking light locations per customer. etc. etc.)

Dave.

Don't OEM use white bulbs in them anyway? What, would the white LEDs wash out the lens color or sumthin? Just asking...

The pure white LED's Do wash out the color and look like arse. Because the LED's are so brite, they dominate the color and thats why I use the same color as the lense itself. I tried using the white ones and hated it.

I'll start looking harder. I ordered 50 AMBER (4K mcd) and they liked to flicker and blow up. For some reason, the 14 to 18K mcd LED's work much better and are much brighter. I ordered the amber ones for my front markers and turn signals and never got to finish them because of the meltdown problem.

If I don't like the results, I sure as hell won't sell them to the public with my name (reputation) on the line. I'm funny that way.

Bump.... still waiting

Most likely tomorrow, I got the LED's in today and started assembling the plates. I'm not ignoring you, I promiss. It's been real busy around here and Trust me when I say that your e-mail is only 1 of about 50 that I've had to respond to.

I need to finish soldering them and they're out the door. I am truly sorry for the loooooong delay but I order my LED's from www.besthongkong.com and they decided to take their sweet fricken time about getting my order to me. (about 1 month)

Look for them in the mail soon. I ship USPS Express Mail. 2-3 day and they're going out on thur.

Dave
