Eagle Lights
« on: January 03, 2013, 08:59:03 PM »
Hello all - I am replacing all the exterior lights on my 05 Eagle (running, tail, break ect.). Everything except the headlights. Does anyone know of a supplier for Eagle 05 lights or is there an alternative? I read some where that LED's are available?

Thanks

Chas

Try Bus Service in Kansas or International Bus Parts in Florida, or B&B Coachworks in Las Vegas.   Cheaper to make your own though.  Buy the LED lamps of your choice from someone like Grote or Trucklite and install them into your existing lenses.  Both of the aforementioned also have the side turn signals.

The Eagle Manufacturing site shows new LED's.  At one time, i spoke to Craig about them and they said $600 for a complete set of new lights to replace the existing ones.  I'd be real careful about buying from them, though.  If you can get them on the phone, credit card only.

Didn't Manny put together his own L.E.D boards inside his lenses?

My bus has the LEDs from Eagle Manufacturing and they are not holding up well.  Less than 50% of most of the LEDs are not working and one running light is completely out.   I tried contacting Craig via email and he said he could get some new ones to replace the ones that are not working but I never heard back from him and that was over 8 months ago. I am going to build my own at this point.  Unless Manny has a good price for his :)

I bought the lights from Manny. They were stock lights not LED. Sean I have some LED from Silver Eagle and they are failing also. If you figure out how to make an LED board I would be interested in how you make them. I have been toying with the idea of making a board in an L shape to have lights shine to the side not just to the back.
