Got my second dimmer today. Have a couple of brick and morter spring projects to do then on to the last of the LED project (wedge based). I will post a video of the dimmer results.

Fellow LED retrofitters,

I have completed converting all of my Coach halogen lites to LEDs and lovin' the power I am NOT burning. I will be testing the two dimmers I received and will submit a video of dimming results soon. I am posting pictures of the desk lite retro. It is really easy and bright, perfect for late night desk whatevering (is that really a word?)

The first is a picture of the LED side of the flat plate with the two option connectors (bayonet base and wedge base) Plug in the one you need into the flat plate. 2 is the mounting tape side of the mounting plate with my wedge adapter plugged in, 3 is the flat plate mounted NOTE: plug the adapter in FIRST, then mount your LED by removing the tape protector and firmly press the plate onto your light fixture, 4 is the result, believe me it is bright white. The bathroom and dining light units are in and work great (wedge based) If anyone wants pictures just ask and I will post.

There is something about the way you are posting your pictures that causes them to line up end to end. (At least on my monitor.)

They appear as one very long picture and causes the post box to extend out way past the ability of my monitor to display without scrolling far to the right. (And I'm using a wide screen 26 inch monitor).

Are you using insert and downloading each pic on it's own download line?

Roll,
Interesting. I am just using the insert picture icon from the quick reply box. Maybe I should put a separater line between each picture. Brought up my post on my laptop and Samsung tablet and they appear one under the other . Can't bring up the 'normal computer as I am rebuilding it with a 8 core AMD 3.7GHz CPU.

You might try going advanced and using the paperclip to attach a pic.

That usually stacks the pictures, but I'm no wiz at this. Others will likley know more about it.

All interested,
Took the plunge and bought the 5Star Tune unit with the 87, tow-haul tune package, I will probably buy a second tune once I get the feel of this tune. Moving on to LED refits...decided to tackle the basement lights, they are micro wedge. Starting test of led dimmer soon (mood lighting) I think I will be able to dim to 80 %. Since we will most likely be doing furloughs a day each week for 17 weeks I am going to take a day of leave each week and have a bunch of 4 day camping trips. Had to shelve the 5 week trip for the short term...might reconsider it though...soon.

That 5Star tune looks interesting! (I learn something new every day on here!).

I did the tune as well but went with Brazels. We live in central Ohio which is flat so I'm not yet certain just how much change I will see when in the mountians but what I do see is that the shifts are faster and crisper then the original tune. I like so far, can't wait to see what it's like in really hilly country.

Roll,
Brazels wanted 895.00, 5star was 400 and from iRV2 blogs they rated both well. I took the economy route here. Next thurs am going to Lynchburg Va for a week of camping. 218 miles from me through the hills of Virginia. Will be paying particular attention to shift patterns. I started with the 87 octane tow/haul tune.. will post thoughts after trip.

Correct on the pricing and it is definitely a consideration. Don't know if the extra bucks was worth it but Brazels will negotiate I found. And, their service has been very good; (so is 5 Star Service I hear).
