    Thanks Greeny

    When you're designing something Greeny, there's so much research involved that a lot of people wouldn't even know where to begin. When you look at the early days of the project, on the other site as most of the project isn't covered here, you'll see that I struggled with the materials for quite a while. But now I'm pretty sure that I've found my materials that I'll continue using for mould making, special resins and silicones that is. As the results I'm now getting are fantastic.

    But then you also have to learn how to use them, the amount of shrinkage I ended up with on my silicon moulds is the cause for me having to modify my existing resin tooling plugs. Baring in mind, I'm still at the prototyping stage, things can only get batter I think !

    'Shame' ? no, not really ..................... I have a manual headlight beam adjuster in my MultiVan, I set it two years ago when I bought the van ..............
    I've never had to re-adjust it since !

    The T4's suspension is so stiff in comparison to a regular car, as in a four door saloon when you carry passengers in the rear, then you would notice the difference. The rear end would go down because of the extra weight in the back, causing your headlights to shine higher up, then an adjustment would come in handy. But in a heavy vehicle like a van, not really necessary.

    I'de much prefer to concentrate on the lights performance and quality actually.

    Hi Guys,


    Just a quick update to let you know where we're at.


    As I'm currently at the headlight covers design stage, and the rest of the assembly is pretty much a 'universal' thing ......... headlight mounting bracket was an absolute mare to get right, it has to be able to support all the different variations of the Hella modular units. All of which are different ! So I had to make three different prototypes.

    In the picture below I have to the left the 'Performance Series' - top middle the 'Classic Series' and to the right the 'Premium Series' >>




    I'll go into greater detail at a later, as right now I'm rather busy wiring stuff !
