Replied. Look forward to receiving them.
Right then guys, hands up all those that want gorgeous new illuminated sills for their COUPE.
Colours and lettering i'll need to think about, but i also want to measure up the size and the 200mm thing, ecause i may opt for a little extra cost, if i can increase the length a bit.... 200mm is not much when you look at the size of our 2 door entrance steps.Because within a few weeks I should have some ready. But what would you like to see illuminated. I can do longer but not this time, so for now the logo / lettering must be no more than 200mm long (8 inches approx) but it can be anything you all agree on. I can have separate ones done, but it costs more and takes longer. But if its something like Mercedes-Benz or Mercedes Coupe etc. Entirely up to you.
Colours, you can have what you like so don't worry about that.
Have a few days to think about it.
Not sure what you mean. You do see them unlit, ie day time, but they only light up at night when its dark. But your right in that its harder to see letters during the day un lit. But no harder than the plain stock foil pressed plastic, Mercedes deemed fit to adorn our cars with.Surely you're never going to see them when they aren't lit up? If they light up as soon as the door is opened? Or have I missed something?
I'm trying mate, really trying. Just doing another set for my own car but still there a little. No way as bad as my first set, Im using different ELs and a white pigment. For some reason the science or physics means that pink phosphors in the EL makes the best white. And at night its just, sorry have to use this word, beautiful. They have a sharpness and crisp white light its hard to imagine. A bit like certain white LEDs. Trouble is getting that balance right to mask it when off but allow enough through when on. I'll get thereYou're going to have to get a little production line sorted soon mate!
Is there no way around the pink tinge?
No. Have you not ever had a look. Or does yours come on during the day?I assumed that they were wired to light up with the interior light - does that not come on when you open the door regardless of day or night?
I have no doubt about it mate.
Did you receive mine all ok?
Thats right but that dusk period when its light but getting dark to switch light on is quite hard to see them normally. You can tell they're on but only just. Needs to be proper dark to 'see' them lit up. I did post some pics somewhere of just this. And they came out quite well. Sensitive Camera I guess.you've got me curious now lol.... but it's pretty overcast and dingy here, so i reckon the lights will come on automatically, so if the interior light is controlled in a similar way then i would expect it to come on.
No No No. Sorry, even I could never do aqua and green on the same sill. You just cannot have two different greens, or any colour really but especially green together. You and your passenger would peuk every time you opened the door.how would the aqua and green would look together ? say "Mercedes-Benz" in aqua and then "Sports Coupe" or "C350 Coupe" in the green ... covering about 400 of the 800 sill plate (off-set to the rear of the door opening)
Thanks, yes it looked stunning. I liked it very much. I was hoping to see more of it.other than that, the last pic i posted - that blue is really alluring.
Well in that regard, there's another issue, albeit minor. The Aqua EL's nice as they are, are white when off. So you wouldnt see much when off / daytime. I think given too many options you get spoiled for choice. Might be best to hang on a wee while and decide once I get the sills done. Just work on the logo / text for now.Your thoughts on daytime looks are also a consideration i guess we should consider, how would the green and aqua look un-lit ?
