HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

Just finished installing and hooking up the light panel for my rear end. I like how it looks in the day but I am kinda disappointed by the view of it when it has its lights on. The bulbs dont really light up the whole panel, There is no reflectors or anything in it so it is just suppose to do this. Still it is unique and looks good all around.

There was one of these light kits on my 944 when I purchased it .... a long time ago. I removed it about 5 years ago to get a different look at the rear of the car. Also I used a separate light shut off switch to kill the illumination at will.
You could place a reflector in front of the light bulb to evenly distribute the light.

I was thinking about that, it would mean me taking apart the assembly to place a reflector in on each of teh bulbs.

Seems like I read a while back there were 2 different qualities of the reflector. One that was better than the other. Is yours more flat plastic or does it have that texture in it like a reflector on a turn signal?

Are you using regular bulbs or LED's? The LED's might brighten it up.

they are just regular bulbs. I had to make a new harness since the old wire was falling apart. I was thinking about upgrading to an led setup.

I think that if you use LED Tape strips from here (http://www.keepitcleanwiring.com/catalog/Lighting/L.E.D.-Tape). I am considering the same thing. I bought a kit to light the empty panel years ago. Thought it was a neat add on. I think after my conversion is complete I will revisit some things and do some upgrading.
