Lit Plates

We have applied for a patent for these.

The first two are renderings and the last two are of an actual piece.
The designs are limitless, and we've already done several different designs for people.



These look nice during the daylight when lit, and RGB is available, but won't be offered, or offered as a add-on kit for do -it -yourself, as many states have strict regulation on colored lights on the front of vehicles. White doesn't typically create issues.

Re: Lit Plates

Those are cool looking!! Great job! How much are you thinking of asking for them? Would you be providing the wiring for them to hook into the normal wiring somewhere?

Re: Lit Plates

These don't have to be plates. They can be hung on the wall or set on a shelf. Could even be incorporated into a speaker box for those into that. We have done the above among other projects. I have a guy that wants the Z28 made into door inserts. I will be doing those this weekend. Should look nice when lit up at night. Also going to do a third break light that will look clear until brake is applied then red Camaro will light up. Wait until you see what we are doing to a set of tail lights on the same car.

Re: Lit Plates

The door inserts were finished and the guy completed his door panels and installed them. The Z/28 was fit into a pocket, so only the logo sticks through the panel and lights up. When the lights are off, it looks like a red emblem. He's thinking of doing the same to the dash, instead of a stick-on emblem.
I'll have him send some photos, so I can post them.
