This mod is for those wishing to change the wiring of the Valenti Reverse Light so the V is seperated from the fog light triangle and to have it light up with the tail position lights or manually via a switch. You will have to remove some of your boot lining to access the plug that the reversing light plugs into. As before, plug the unit into the plug and test it from the driver's seat. Test the reversing lights also. Now all that's left to do is hook that Special Red wire up to a power source. This can be one of 3 or more ways. 1. Tapping into the position light power in the tail light. 2. Installing a switch in the dash or elsewhere and connecting that to an always on when the car is on source such as a 12v socket, straight to the battery or hard wired in to the fuse box. 3. Wiring into an always on power source such as #2 That's it for the time being. The connection of the red wire (V light) should be finalised shortly. Stay tuned.
I uninstalled my Valenti reversing light and reinstalled the stock unit (40 minutes start to finish including all boot linings). I'm having a look at making the V bar brighter to act as a DRL. Removing the light diffuser does the trick but then you can see all the individual LEDs. First photo. Changing the LEDs for others I have doesn't improve brightness and introduces bright spots when using the light diffuser. So using the light diffuser in its' current state is only good for night time. Having a close look at the diffuser I've found that it is coated on the inside with white paint(?). Removing this coating may produce the effect I am after. Photo 2 is a close up of the diffuser. Anyone have experience in removing this type of coating from this type of material without scratching or effecting the material? I may also need to re-coat if it doesn't work so ideas with that too...
