as the shop is closed due to the Ayodhya verdict for a couple
of days.

I sincerely hope that there is not much tension in the country.
LET PEACE PREVAIL. JAI HIND.
Thats really sad. Can you check on these guys:
Create a Custom 3rd Brake Light Overlay Decal.
You can customise your own overlay decal and place the order for the same.
Are you getting the F1 led brake lamp from Dave?. If you are doing so I dont mind getting one for my swifty and share the shipping cost.
Cheers...

I agree nightzconcepts are expensive but i believe they do a neat

but the failure rate is high when it rains but these guys do a job which
demands high pay. I spoke to dave and he agreed to propose a design
after seeing the rear portion of the car. I have mailed him the pics.

Waiting to see what design he comes up with as i told him that i do not
not need any metal frame to hold the stuff aligned to the bumper.


@naveen.. thank you buddy. as updated above, trying my best. will
keep you updated. keep me posted if you have any
suggestions and sources.
I stumbled over this product, which could be a better option than Dave's F1 flashing LED's. Dave dosent have a paypal account and he refused to do shipping out from S'pore.
Check this:Products
I plan to work around this product as it will go perfect with the existing 3rd brake lamp which I have already changed to high power SMD.
I will update you on the same.
Cheers...

@Sportsmind. Thanks dude.. sure, will keep you updated.
Need any tbhpian from singapore to visit nightzconcepts.

When i spoke to Dave the other day, he told me that he has different types
of F1 style flashers. He requested me to check if someone from singapore
could visit his shop and mail us the pics. he also preferred to get it shipped
through them instead of doing it directly.

I am also in touch with Sprocket, Kormangala. those guys had these stuffs before.
Now they dont have stock and they are trying their best to find one in the market.

So either of the things will work for us for sure.. Nightzconcepts has it ready.
Just a matter of time before we choose the design and settle down on a price.

Any Tbhpians from singapore who can help us? Tried with Revcools, a BHPian.
Pinged him, No response. :(

Guys, dont you think a simple DIY will work for this ?

For Eg : eBay India: LED FLASHER FOR ALL CARS HONDA HYUNDAI MARUTI BLUE (item 320596580703 end time 05-Oct-2010 09:22:10 IST)

All you need to do is to fix it to the existing tail lights

@Naveen - Thanks man. I found the Zen manual and got the ratings of the bulbs. The thing is most of the people you find in shops which sells these stuffs have no idea what they are selling. They don't know if its white light or not, some say that you can put in any bulb just like that. I don't understand how they can sell stuff and not even know what they are selling. Guess it's very difficult to find people who knows stuff.

@sportzmind. SUPER. Cheers buddy. Nice find.
Definitely Interesting. i want the flasher beneath the
bumper as a separate entity.

Do i need to get something welded to hold the flasher alone.
If yes, then the height needs to be considered because the
stuff should not scrape when the rear wheel gets set to
leave the speed breaker or any pit.
I hope they do have the case if we are fitting it as a
standalone (i.e not in the tail lamp)


The below product looks cool. Not sure how to fit it in the place
where i want.

eBay India: LED FLASHER FR ALL CARS LIKE HONDA HYUDAI MARUTI RED (item 320596764863 end time 05-Oct-2010 20:59:35 IST)

@naveen: Any inputs buddy.. This is interesting.

You could consider doing a neat looking cut on your bumper to go with the size of your LED flashing lamp and mount it from behind the bumper. The other option would be to mount it on your rear wind shield from the inside. With both these options you can even secure the stuff from anyone who plans to pull it off. Which is always a worry when I park my swifty in public parking spaces.

Saw this and looks interesting. The best part is the price. Way cheaper than the other model. U can check this out since it's very cheap. Also, you can scrap them if you dont find it good. I think you can check this out. Keep us updated.
Cheers.!
