This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

I just finished a little LED side marker project! Streamlining the design with a modern LED setup. Part is 11.5mm to the top of the red lens, and 8.65mm around the remainder.

The LED I used is from Truck-lite.

I've made the 3D-print file (STL) available here! The file name is agon_Side-Marker-Housing.stl

Use some silicone RTV adhesive sealant to set the LED into the housing. Enjoy!

It looks a little "strange" (maybe a better term is too modern) to me, do you have a photo of it installed on your Van?

I also wonder about the rectangular lens shadow on the OG paint?

Well, that Lab doesn't want to get too close and be caught driving without a license!

Neato, but Iím concerned that the carrier restricts the visibility of the light, i.e. w/out the carrier that light can be seen from a wider range of angles. Maybe itís a non issue. Pics at night would help.

I love your projects. Thanks for sharing them here.

I'll take a few pictures later on - this was a quick day project. I have to get back to some other projects.

The housing doesn't actually block any of the reflecting portion of the lens - the lens is free and clear of it. I'll take some night pictures eventually, unless someone else prints the part and beats me to it Laughing Wink

Thanks! I appreciate it! I'm happy to share!

Thanks for your time and effort.
It's great to have options when replacing our aging parts.

Hi TheSamba,

I just realized that I never uploaded an image of the light turned on. Here's one from today around dusk.

Here's another at night. As always, hard to gauge night shots.
