    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    Too bad we in the USA can't get the new Jimny's... The Samurai's were only available her '86-95'... Butch

    Dual Mode RV Porch Light

    Dave, There are quite a few LEDs made for RVs exterior lighting, and some for "porch" lighting, but I'm not sure why there are no combo units... Or at least I can't find them... It seems like it would be a perfect set up for RV manufactures... Single point mounting and switching would save...

    7" Round Headlight replacements

    Have you looked at the Truck-Lite reflectors? They aren't "alien mothership" looking, but not quite sealed beam looking either... Much better looking than the projectors though... I need some new headlights, but don't know who to throw my money at. ????? Butch

    Dual Mode RV Porch Light

    I'm new to this "lighting world" so I'm not sure of lumens needed .. But I would like to cover an area about 16' wide, by 10' out from the light/motorhome... And mounted about 9'-10' up on the motorhome... Maybe a neutral CCT... Nothing too "harsh"... Sorry for the late replies... I was out...

    Dual Mode RV Porch Light

    12vdc and no particular budge, but not looking to spend over $100-200. Inexpensive is better. I don’t think this would have to be state of the art. Butch

    Dual Mode RV Porch Light

    I have a motorhome with no outside lighting, other than a small incandescent porch light... I changed the lamp out to a LED,which gives me more light... What I would like to do is install a dual mode LED based fixture that would provide a dim light as a porch light, then a flood light to light...

    7" Round Headlight replacements

    The detractors are more of a who, than what... Daniel Stern, Some of the posters on this forum, and a few reviews that I saw on Amazon... I would like to see a head to head scientific review of 7" reflector type LED headlights.... Something that would look "right" on our vehicles.. The nearest...

    7" Round Headlight replacements

    I'm in the same boat as you... I'm looking for a 7" up grade for my 1986 Suzuki Samurai... I was looking really hard at the Holleys,but as you can see on the other post about them, they have some detractors... Thinking Truck-Lites now.. I would like to see a direct comparison between them from...

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    Cute and enthusiastic video, but not scientific by any means... I have no doubt that most anything would be brighter than my ancient sealed beams (as would the ones in the video).... Even new sealed beams... But are the Holleys safe to use on a highway? Who do you trust to do the testing? I have...

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    This was Daniel Stern's response to 3 emails I sent him... He gave me permission to pass them along here... Butch Well, hang on a sec…I can certainly understand the desire for better lighting, and there are several good options for it—and yes, a relay harness will greatly improve matters...

    12V LED RV 2-Way Porch Light Replacement

    I'm looking to install a light that would provide just little light as a porch light, but would have a second purpose as a general flood to light up the outside living area of my motorhome... Maybe a remote controlled two-way device... I don't want a high output light as a porchlight, but I...

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    I emailed Daniel, and he gave me some great pointers, about my lighting situation... He did not sell me anything, and didn't try to... Just gave me excellent advice.... Very nice guy.. Thanks for the recommendation... Butch

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    One of the reasons that I wanted LEDs was the low power draw... This old car has a small 1.3L engine, with a whopping 63 HP, and a small alternator... I may put some auxiliary (LED) lighting on for the desert, so I'm trying to keep my electrical loads as low as possible... The Suzuki's have a...

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    I don't mind paying for a good product, but the price of these are almost past "consumables", which headlight are... I guess tech cost but this is an overpriced $8,000, 36 year old car... It looks like it's gonna be +$400 for a pair of upgraded lights.... I've been looking at the Truck-Lites...

    Automotive Holley RetroBright headlamps? Good, bad or ugly?

    Hi all... New here... I found this forum looking for reviews on this headlight... I really wanted it to be a great product.... I have a USA model, 1986 Suzuki Samurai... I use it 90% on well lit streets with low beams only... But I do use it occasionally off road in the very dark desert where...
