Read it here first: I WILL have sequentials on my '95 LX.
The car simply looks like it was designed for it, but that the factory bean-counters nixed them because they would have added $1.72 to the cost of building each car.
I hate that, and I have ALWAYS tilted at the "reduced design" windmill. You know, sometimes you can look at something, and it's not quite right, but if ya do this or that, THEN it will be PERFECT? And the change will look "like it was there all the time" -- "like it grew there"? It's a natural.
So, I (and some people smarter than me) are screwing around with the idea right now, and still in the learning and conceptualizing stage right now -- thus the initial question.
Until I got the answers above, I thought that ALL the MN-12's had lighted LED panels, but got surprised at the junkyard over the weekend. I'm not into tearing up stuff at the junkyard that somebody else might want, so I had to ask here.
Anyway, this info is not encouraging. We've been working with busted-up '92-'97 T-Bird panels, assuming they were all the same -- and that "If we build it, they will come."
Now I'm less sure. There REALLY isn't much room to move in the "half-thickness" '89-'91 'Bird reflectors, and the Cougar panels appear to be about the same. This puts a pretty-good sized crimp in the options I've come up with. It ain't necessarily a killer, but it's a significant handicap that will require some "drawing board time."
For what it's worth, I'd be willing to bet that the person you remember talking on this subject a coupla months ago was GreenBird. See the thread in this category about removing the lens from the LED panels -- he's working with 8ate8 on getting a "pre-damaged" panel.
A while back, GreenBird explained that he hoped to begin development on the project during the first part of next year. As one of the responders, I simply mentioned that "If he built it, I would come", and added that I had an idea of my own that I was gonna play with in the meantime.
As you can see, I'm still playing with it.
But, whether they're GreenBird's, or mine, I WILL have sequential turn signals on my 'Bird!
