ECR LED Group-Buy

Now I'm really a group-buy whore. Nevertheless, here's the deal.

ECR has the LED lamps in stock now, and we can organize a group-buy to get a discount. Exactly what that discount is, I'm not sure, but the larger the order, the greater the savings.

Right now they dont have the stuff in for the 94's and 110's yet (unless you want to convert to round 95+ style lights) but they will be arriving at some point.

Below are the kits and price-list from ECR, also dont fail to check out their web-page listing the features and pictures of the LED's:

http://www.eastcoastrover.com/LED.html

ECR LED tail lamp prices for 1995 and 1997 NAS Defender 90:

DIY wiring LED KIT
2 red stop/tail lamps
2 amber turn signal
$250.

DIY wiring LED KIT with Reverse
2 red stop/tail lamps
2 amber turn signal
1 clear reverse lamp
$475.

Plug and Play LED KIT
2 red stop/tail lamps

Plug and Play LED KIT with Reverse
2 red stop/tail lamps
2 amber turn signal
1 clear reverse lamp
$575.

maybe ECR would just offer a discount to www.d-90.com members. Like in the "specials" section.

Lights

Mike emailed me those prices, they sure would look nice.

Unfortunately I do not use any other color for those size lights other than red. I run 5 red on the rear, and the turn signals up front (big lower ones) red as well, Hopefully I can be accomodated.

The group buy can offer a better deal than a discount for list members because someone else handles the group buy (JimC). He gets the total, deals with the shipping, etc. He collects all the data, places on large order for lights, all we have to do is put the lights in a box and send them to him, then he arrnages the rest.
That makes our part of the transaction very simple and therefore we can offer a much better price as we do not have to make much money to cover the transaction. The bigger the order, the bigger the discount.

As for "all red lamps". That will be no issue as JimC will just be ordering in bulk and he can place the correct order so that your needs can be handled.

What we are offering for the group buy is any of the DIY lamps. The Plug and Play units are not available for the group buy. Just give JimC the total number of lamps you want (2 red, 2 amber or 4 red, whatever).

Discounts depend on the final number ordered, but look to 20% and up if a min. can be met.

We are doing this to get a new product out into the public and I wanted to offer it only to list members.
This will be a one time thing on this product.
My plan is do offer this type of thing with each new proiduct we offer. This is the first.

The LED lamps are direct replacements for the factory parts. The reason we don't really push changing the front amber turn signals tro LED is that those lights don't have as many corrosion issues as the rears. Customer can do the fronts if they like though, due to cost we usually just do LED in the rear, but they will fit.

Mike,

Is there anything special that needs to be done to convert from the Square style to the Round LEDs? (I like the round style)

Mike, do/will you offer an LED replacement for the rectangular side marker lights? (Those go out the most often on my truck.) Thanks!

Nothing speacial in the wiring, but you will need to check that the 1994 holes in the body are covered by the 97 style black plastic housings. We haven't done that convesrion yet so I don't have first hand knowledge of if the new plinths cover the old holes.

Nothing yet on those, but we'll look into it.
If you clean the connections with a file and then fill the base with dilectric grease when you put a new bulb in they will last a good long time.

Okay I might be in, but if the plug and play are not available for the deal, what do you get and what needs to be done?

You get LED lamp units with wires coming out of them. Then you connect these wires to your trucks wiring however you desire.

So far we are at:

11 Reds
16 Ambers
6 Clears
6 Relays

And I'll order an extra set if I have to in order to get the ball rolling.

1 flasher unit does the vehicle.
The flasher unit is a direct replacement for the one already in your truck. Unplug it and plug this one in and the LED units will flash at the correct rate. Without it they will flash too quickly.

About 2 weeks and I will have the first sets. Then we will check if there are any fit issues or other problems.

Now we are at:

15 Reds
20 Ambers
6 Clears
7 Relays

Also, for those of you who are not splicing inclined, I can get you pigtails and render these "DIY" lights into "plug and play" ones. Obviously there will be cost for the parts, but I'll do it for free and wont make any money off it.

Where is the flash unit on your 97 auto trucks?
If its like my UK 50th LE which is like a 97 SW, its behind a metal plate behind the fuses. So when i swaped to LED bulbs a i had to remove the NAS tunnel to get access to the relay.

Regards

James
