Re: Backup light troubleshooting

Thanks guys. I’ll probably just stick a couple of regular bulbs back in for the time being.

Backup light troubleshooting

Just replaced backup light bulbs with LEDs from WCCC. Going into reverse they flash on for a moment then go off. Leaving reverse, they do the same thing: flash on for a moment then go off. I would put the old bulbs back in to test but I broke one taking it out. I recently did some other upgrades for...

Re: Rollover Protection System

Yorgie, the Shelby style bars are the only devices that look aesthetic enough to consider, but they are may from “integral skin urethane.” Carroll Shelby would surely be astonished to see a plastic strip masquerading as a safety device. I’m surprised they aren’t liable for accidents regardless of w...

Halogen headlights

I’d like better lights in the road than the meager stock ones.

Any reason I should investigate newer tech...

Re: Rollover Protection System

Thanks for the responses everyone. My first post here and it’s awesome how quickly you responded! Royce - Agreed, it’s rare. Only 3% of serious accidents are rollovers. But 30% of those don’t end well. A friend rolled a car over and survived with just a scratch, but not in a convertible. walterf - Y...

Rollover Protection System

Has anyone tried retrofitting a 1969 (or whatever) Convertible with a rollover protection system? Basically what looks like a rear set headrest is actually the tip of a roll bar. When the car tips, it triggers a spring which raises the headset a foot so the car can roll on it! I’ve read about people...
