There are 5 light levels, and the lowest is relatively dim, but that's pretty subjective. I like it subtle myself and I've not found them distracting at that setting, but I wouldn't say they are faint. I don't have a really good way to photograph in low light either. They always appear much brighter than they really are. If they are too bright, you could always put a little black electrical tape over the LED's themselves. You might be able to find a combination that works well for you.

Also, as of right now, WJ rings are on hand!

Haha, there's nothing wrong with the good ol' coin flip. You also happened to get the last logo version in stock! I guess I'll have to make more.

No worries man. I'll look into that next week. I should be caught up with most of my backlog by then.

In other news... I consider my accent lighting test a success. I have to make a few small revisions to my mounting bracket design, but otherwise I'm very happy with the results. I'm hoping to have those available next week as well.

Here is a pic. Keep in mind that it's pretty hard to get a good shot of the real world appearance. They aren't quite as bright in person.

What do you think your pricing will be and can 2 basic kits be hooked up in order to illuminate the rear as well?

Your accent lighting test looks good to me.

One last question about the logo rings - I guess I could figure this out next time I go out to mine, but I'm in the office now so as long as I'm replying I might as well ask - can you even see the logo when you're sitting normally, or do you only see the "p" from the passenger side cup holder?

Thanks

Yes. You can connect multiple kits without issue. They will just daisy chain using the 3 way splitters. As far as price goes, I'm not sure yet. They should be pretty affordable.

You can see the full logo. I would imagine you would have to be very short to have any of it blocked.

Okay, you've talked me in to it; I'll take a set of the logo rings for and '07 WK and 2 sets of accent lighting, with one wired controller. I'm guessing you'll have the rings shown as back in stock soon but will you be updating your site for the accent lighting option?

I appreciate you honoring the price. I'll be buying the accent kit to make up for that when it is ready!

Your site is great, and checkout worked perfectly.

Thanks again,
Matt

As of right now, there are a few 05~07 WK rings in stock. I don't expect them to last long however. I can make more soon, since I have all the parts needed. I will be updating the site for the accent lighting as soon as I make the revisions I need. It should be next week. I think I may have underestimated demand though. I'll order more parts ASAP.

No problem Matt. It was the right thing to do.

I'm glad the site worked well for you. It just makes things so much easier to keep track of.

Please set aside 2 accent light kits, 1 wired controller and 1 '07 WK logo ring sets until I can order them all at once; or should I order the logo rings and then wait until you've made the revisions to order the rest?

You can do whichever you prefer. I'm realistically a week away from having the accent lights ready. I'd probably lock down a set of the logo rings. Shipping is free (in the US), so it doesn't cost you any more to order something else later.
