Hello Jules,
that sounds nice... this guy Classic-Parts-France, Albert Haefner, sits in Saarbrücken (which is in Germany not France) but his hompage is French and nothing else. Will he be selling to Germany or is there something special about this company.

Peter, give Albert a chance to get ready. He just got our first sets and he is in Munich right now. You could also just give him a call next week. Are you happy with yours?

Thank you, jules

Thank you for asking, Jules, I have not put them in yet. The great Weber adjustment in Cologne is going to happen first... next week.
I would like to replace all of them except the headlights..
I am interested in Classic Parts France as a supplier of other parts too but I was a bit surprised about their only having a homepage in French in spite of sitting in Germany. I will give them a call.. no hurry.

Hey Mike,

I brought my new fog light LEDs to the concours... but I think I forgot to show them to you, lol.

These are arm.white BA20 bulbs that replace the original (and huge) 35w bulbs.

About 50% brighter than stock but only 5.5w and a beam pattern that is near identical to stock! So no worries anymore about overheating light switches etc.

Entire housing made of billet aluminum for an extremely long life span.

'Morning, Jules! Dang! I think we were both fixated on all the great cars at the Concours. Let me know when you are ready to ship and the price.

In this year's Mille Miglia we had 5 cars participating that were equipped with our 'complete car upgrade' - LEDs front to back, inside and out.

Driver (and passenger) feedback was fantastic. Super happy that they were now able to see!

I just put in set of LED lights, front turn signals, rear brake and turn signals, rear tail lights and the relay (grounded). If the lights are not on everything works, but when I turn on the parking light or all lights, the left front signal light does not blink. The rear brake/signal light blinks.
Any ideas or solutions?
The car is a late delivery US 6V 356C Cab.

Glad to hear the idea I sent you via Email fixed it, Bob. That was pretty straightforward (bad connection in the tail light housing, not enough current flowing to the turn signal bulb)

Hey folks, if you are interested I made an install video of these lovely lights showing the before and after. I originally only did the headlights thinking that was my main issue, but then I realized people still can't see me very well at night!

These are a total game changer for an old vintage car. Mine's a 1960 356B Roadster on the 6v system.

Vincent -- if you really want to be seen, add Jules' third brake light. I added two of them and connected them to the brake lights and turn signals. (Since this photo, I've moved the grill badge to the lower corner so it does not block the light.)

I like that placement Ted... the reflected light in the air intake area creates a large patch of red that might help gain a distracted driver's attention.

Looks like you can grill a steak on that grill :).

It works well with just one strip on twin and single grill cars too.
