Project Subaru WRC S5 lamp pod (part 2)
In my previous post I started preparations for my S5 lamp pod. This week the 8.75″ Hella 4000 with 100w bulbs arrived. Unfortunately the big Dutch rally companies only sell LED lights. These lights are the future. LED lights are weight less, are very bright and use minimum power. For my replica I need the type of lamps to fit inside the S5 pod. I found ASPerformanc UK as a company willing to help me out and order these lights from Hella. Within 2 weeks the delivery guy stood on my doorstep.
They come with mounting for the lamp pod. I’ll show you that when I start mouting them on the pod. The pod is on it’s way (somewhere in/around Moscow at the moment). For my birthday I got the wiring for the lamps. All I need is a few connectors but nothing fancy. The connector shown on the following is waterproof, this will be the link between the wiring on the bonnet and the wiring inside the pod. The clips are there to attach the tube on the bottom of the bonnet.
I have to wait for the pod to arrive for further updates, but patience is a good thing!
