Default Imp LED Halo with LED HID Headlights

I threw a set of these on, in amber of course, they look good:

Those are the housings with a halogen bulb. To go to LED HID you need these bulbs:

You need those exact bulbs because all others are too tall to fit in the headlight buckets.

I plan on running the Amber halos as DRL to let the sledders know I'm coming, just need to hook them into the dash panel to turn on when the engine is running.

Hey Rodre

How have these worked out?

Have any pictures, and did you go with the LED?

Thanks

I put a set on a A model Spryte. I also have the octane cheapy reflectors on the 1642 in the clowder 2019. One of those photos shows them lit up.

careful if you put HID in the octane reflectors, not all of them are Metal housings.

LED is a non issue as the bulb and spectrum of light is not much heat in the reflector.
HID is a different animal. I messed with the focal points a bit to pattern the luminaire.

I am happy, Led is not my thing, I like the color and up close amount of light. But I need to reach out a bit when searching for reflectors on the trails or land marks on lakes. LED are ok but HID are great. (if focused properly)
