Working on it ;-)

Both mine have been built now, the 2nd one is just waiting for the adhesive to go off and then I got to do the wiring.

I have them wired so the middle ring will extinguish when the indicators come on. (Note I am not using Jays controllers).

@nunofvc. Apologies, I must have missed that email. do sen me a PM or another email but everything you need to know is on the wiki: http://projects.jabawoki.com.

I only sell the controllers and not the rings or other parts. If you just want to install the rings and have the centre switch off with the indicators like @troll has done, you do not need the controllers. You can buy a harness off ebay to do that or do it yourself with a set of relays. The controllers provide granular control over each ring for the effects as well as isolating them from the electronics of the car to promote longevity.

As it stands, The last 5 sets of controllers I have are spoken for, but a recent influx of requsts may encourage me to make some more.

I would really like to get in touch with this man! I've bought about half the parts list but can't seem to find many headlights available. Had the box for nearly a year now and I can see this is a project I'm never realistically going to finish myself.

Could you put me in contact?

When you say tricks and the strobe effect do you mean the side to side from yonash's video?

Hi JaberwokJay,

I am interested in doing the headlamp mod (it looks great)! My only concern is the rest of the lights.
In order to match the light colour for the headlamps, do you recommend xenon conversions.
I' a little skeptical about doing this, I've tried about 3 different sets of side light LED's and all fail in a short space of time.

If you know of good quality bulbs etc that would help, but I would like this to be a reliable set up.

Thanks in advance.

You dont need to match the sides with a Halo's as they make excellent replaecments for your sidelights!!

Only thing you need to match if yoru so inclined are main beam and dip beam. Use HIDs @ 6K for the dip and leave the mains as halogen and forget the colour match but put in 80-100w off road use bulbs.

Works a treat.

Do you just leave the a standard filament bulb in the side lights or is the power source used for the halo?

Do you recommend going all LED's with the conversion including indicators?

I have to say the halos do look amazing!

Sorry, this effect is limited to YonasH's controllers. My controllers do not do this as it required a much more compicated approach to the electronics for the sake of 1 effect.

The controllers I deisgned opperate specifically to aid in road safety by controlling the light output depending on situation. The only effect they have is the startup routine.

I would get in contact with YonasH and see if he has any kits left, I know he made a small number once.

This video shows the modes of operation for my controllers.

http://youtu.be/qOf9f99d9EU
I am from Bulgaria and I am pretty sure that I need to purchase it online but I am not sure what exactly do I need. I suppose you can help me
P.S i want to make my car special. I have intention to install nexus 7 tab in the dash. I want to upgrade my speakers but i dont know what to order for the alfa romeo 159 sportwagon. I am with classic audio system(non bose) and when i increase the volume there is noise. Do you know what is the price for one decent stereo pack for the 159sw that can beat the fabric quality

all the earths for the clusters are in the loom. They are not seperate. Each light inside the headlight shraes a common earth and splits out from the back of the connector block.
