Yes I had them wired up and they are much brighter than incandescent's. As for water? Each light is completely sealed so that shouldn't be a problem but if a problem does occur, I always have duct tape! LOL

Ace, they look GREAT. I wanna see them for real. You did a lot of research and a bunch of work on the Stainless to make everything fit...and did a marvelous job.

And you opened the door for the rest of us for the back-up lights!  Wink

Great job guy...and thanks for keeping us plugged in.

Thanks Bob and Bob! It was more waiting then it was researching although, I DID have to find WHO and WHEN they would make them for me!

Today, I went out and aired the bus up and tried them out. The running lights worked, then after releasing the parking brake, I hit the foot brake and the brake lights worked, and then the turn signals worked, and then the final test was the Back up lights. They worked VERY good. So good that they reflected off a barn that sits a 100 or so yards behind the bus. As you might see in the picture, the red lights are a little dim. I had them wired backwards but have since wired them correctly and the amber turn signal lights seem odd. It's the angle of my camera on my phone as I was trying to picture them while they were blinking ON. Not an easy task! LOL

All in all I am very pleased with the side I have complete. Now all I have to do is the drivers side!

True it's not a professional install but for a 92 coach and me, it works just great and it made it just a little modernized at that! LOL

So far, so good!

Great panel of Leds!

Now even the second driver following you can wear their dark sun glasses and still stop.

Good Job.

 Ok, here is the scoop on Ace's LED lights. I went over tonight to check it out and let me tell you pictures don't do it justice. Those LEDs are awesome! They are bright in the day light and at night, man are they bright! They just look so good in the back of his Prevost especially all the chrome. He has done an excellent job, and for a great price.  Smiley

I think Ace should start making them up for resale, as he has so much time! Grin

Really Ace, a mighty fine job......Where's my sunglasses?.........

My only concern with LED'S is that on most vehicles I see them on one or more lights are burned out, cars, trucks and busses. I guess they will improve with time. On our 2006 Hyundi Azera it has a mass of rear LED'S and when the brakes are applied it is very bright. Well one is burned out. I hope Ace has better luck with his.
