TC headlight conversion

Recommended Posts

I have not heard of anyone trying a LED conversion in any TM....yet. However, I do have a friend that I think is about to try some in his Spirit. I also have another friend who converted his Ford Excursion to LED and he claims the lighting is really nice.

 

I have thought about trying it myself.

The only point I'll note with a conversion is that on glass lenses, it's easy for ice to build up. LED bulbs may not put out much heat and it would be possible for them to freeze over in colder climates. Not a huge deal, but apparently huge enough for Volvo and other companies to put wipers on their headlights with glass lenses.

I can see those wipers being used for de-icing, but it was explained to me that it was more for mud because it is very common in Europe (and I have seen this personally when I lived there) for tractors and such to be going down the road and mud, dirt, etc is the main concern. I can see how it cold be for the ice too, though.
