    I've never left.

    Hey buddy, you are way ahead of me. As scanned, the lens is unusable due to the formed flanges and the shape change once freed from the frame. Fortunately, the good people at Fiverr will be helping me tweeking the lens. I'll figure something out once I have working models.

    I've never left.

    So, I've tried a number of things and still could not reproduce the turn signal lens to any degree of satisfaction and had been chewing on this project. I recently acquired a 3D printer off the local CL. This new to me tool allows for certain possibilities. I had the lens and the frame scanned. Then, I attempted to print some samples. Mind you, I still do not know what I am doing with the 3D printer. As scanned, the plastic lens does not fit into the frame. Once freed from the frame (I had to cut up the frame to do so), the plastic lens curled up. Also, the flanges at the edged of the plastic lens were molded around the metal frame; These flanges will have to be straightened out. The next step is to get professional help in manipulating the scanned files...

    Electric conversion anyone?

    If you don't mind, please share some information specific to the 2002: 1) Expected watt-hour/mile consumption, 2) Battery type, 3) KWh for selected battery pack. 4) Expected battery weight to support 100-120 miles range. Thanks,

    Trouble with instrument lighting after LED swap

    LEDs are essentially diodes allowing current to flow only in one direction. So, they are very picky about the polarity. It does seem unlikely that all the LEDs were installed reversed. First check your fuse box to make sure. Then, try to install these LEDs one at a time testing polarity as you go. Good luck.

    Hello Geoff, I do not have the 2D file, but, let me know if you want me to ship the adapter plate to you for "inspiration". Best regards, Trieu

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Thank you. I had some extras made for other projects for my own use. I do not want to turn this into a business, or for the trade mark police to go after me.

    Drew up the Alpina logo. Sent it out to be hard enameled. Made another shift knob.

    I found and bought my campys in Italy. Had them crated and shipped to the US. Did not have any problem with customs on either side.
