Exterior LED Retrofit for my '72 Sovereign
Spent the last week installing new LED running lights and LED tail lights. Last summer I installed LED backing lights but an elusive short in the backing light circuit prevented them from working.
I decided to find that elusive short today. First I found a loose bullet connector on the curbside light and fixed it, but I still had a short. After taking apart the umbilical/pigtail I found the culprit. A single strand of wire from the ground connection was touching the base of the backing light connector. After cleaning up this connection, I plugged the pigtail in again and Voila!! We've got lights!!!
Here's a few pics of all of the LEDs at dusk.
