Not lights

Post  piston 197 on Sat Apr 22, 2017 8:07 pm

These are not lights and are only lit from light source inside the headlight, suggest your speedo light may be illuminating it ?

Presumably at night you can see if you have your headlight on, or see if the bulb goes, but they are just clear red plastic studs with no bulb below

Wipac headlamp

Post  FB vincent on Sun Apr 23, 2017 7:05 am

You need to look at the Wipac wiring diagram. The pilot bulb is illuminated when the Ignition is ON, and illuminates the speedometer but also serves as a reminder that the Ignition is ON. The bulb is located near the right hand red lozenge, so this one is brighter. I am sure that nobody knows why Wipac fitted two lozenges!. Sandy

Wipac lozenges

Post  piston 197 on Sun Apr 23, 2017 7:15 pm

I have looked through my stock and I have a battered U/S wipac shell ( not fit for purpose as badly dented), but it does still have both wipac lozenges still in it ( both faded)
It is available if required, but you will not save the shell !

Post  Bigjim on Sun Apr 23, 2017 8:19 pm

John, do your tell tales have WIPAC moulded in or are they plain?

Pretty certain they have the moulded word WIPAC on them, but will check

Wipac tell tales

Post  Bigjim on Tue May 02, 2017 7:12 pm

I have re drawn the tell tales and I am now happier with the result. Looking at the image, is the word WIPAC too big?
I have emailed a design & 3D print firm for a price & quantity. I am not expecting a reply until later this week (5/5/17) How many does any one think you/we need?
UPDATED version, thinner wipac lettering now 0.005", was 0.01"

red tell tales

Post  Bigjim on Fri May 05, 2017 6:37 pm

Can I have an expected price that you are thinking of?
I have just been quoted an outrageous price for a high definition 3D printed piece, so that I can get a silicone mould made to then cast in a red translucent resin. to say it's well past 80 is understating it.
I do have other avenues to explore, keep watching this post.
