LED rear lights

Hi guys,

I dont know If this was ever done here as a retrofit ?

Personally i thought that the rear light of the C8’s were looking a bit “aged” so i was looking at the C8 Aileron rear light and liked the look of it. So started measuring and looking If it lights can be retrofitted.

The big difference between the C8 and the C8 Aileron is the depth of the Led-light cluster.

So made CAD-drawing of everything and started engineering (my hobby is engineering)

Next the adapters were milled and threads were inserted.

That has become quite apparent: you appear to perform more R&D than Spyker itself right now

Fantastic to see; consider me a fan

Thank you for that compliment !

Have gotten a few questions by fellow Spyker enthousiasts about how this works;

I have made 2 complete sets as test and they are made of quite some pieces;

The adapters and hardware
