New Mod
« on: February 12, 2006, 03:40:19 PM »

While having her torn down for the winter, I figured I'd hit one of my biggest peeves, that High Beam Indicator which is quite distracting at night. Being in a relatively rural area, you need all the light you can get to see the critters. That indicator made it unbearable.

After searching high and low I was able to come up with some LED condoms. Because shipping and the minimums were much more money than the piece cost themselves, I got bunch of colors in a life time supply.

Anyway, I took apart the indicator housing, and tried one blue condom. Didn't dim it quite enough I felt for me, so I doubled them up and think it came out great. Just bright enough to notice it during the day, but much, much more comfortable at night.

Highly recommended!  [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

Cool Idea!

I never had noticed how bright it is...the one on my SEEG was actually too dim!
