Try Grainger if the HID situation involves a bulb only. I had a bulb go bad but ballast worked fine; a GE HID bulb with the old ballast works with the old holder. The LED stuff I found required a complete rework of the LL fixture and tip area.

Subject: [PLEASE READ] Why I Have A Fund Raiser...


Since the beginning, the Matronics List and Forum experience has been free from
advertising.  I have been approached by fair number of vendors wanting to tap
into the large volume of activity across the various lists hosted here, but have
always flatly refused.  Everywhere you go on the Internet these days, a user
is pummeled with flashing banners and videos and ads for crap that they don't
want.  Yahoo, Google and that ilk are not "free".  The user must constantly
endure their barrage of commercialism thrust into their face at an ever increasing
rate.  Enough is enough, and the Lists at Matronics choose not to succumb
to that.

That being said, running a service of this size is not "free".  It costs a lot
of money to maintain the hardware, pay for the electricity, air conditioning,
maintenance contracts, etc, etc. etc.  I choose to hold a PBS-like fund raiser
each year during the month of November where I simply send out a short email
every other day asking the members to make a small contribution to support the
operation.  That being said, that contribution is completely voluntary and non-compulsory.
Many members choose not to contribute and that's fine.

However, a very modest percentage of the members do choose to make a contribution
and it is that financial support that keeps the Lists running.  And that's
it.  To my way of thinking, it is a much more pleasant way of maintaining the
Lists and Forums.  The other 11 months of the year, you don't see a single advertisement
or request for support.  That's refreshing and that is a List and Forum
that I want to belong to.  I think other people feel the same way.

Won't you please take a minute to make your Contribution today and support these
Lists?

Guys

Thanks for the info. I'll likely install bump bar in tail but use the water in
pail trick as well.

Cheers

Well, if it isn't one thing it's another. Last week my Garmin 496 GPS died,
this week it's my HID landing lights. So I'm going to replace them with
LEDs. Vans sells a Sunspot LED wing tip kit for the RV10/14 kits. From the
picture I can't tell if they are a exact replacement for the original RV-10
wing tip landing light or not. Vans picture doesn't show the position lights
that the original installation has in the wing tip. Maybe there is a better
LED light available. Wouldn't mind installing them inboard from the tips for
better center line coverage. I've considered an additional light under the
prop for center line coverage. Tried mounting one on the front wheel pant
but too much vibration for a filament type lamp. LED should be ok with
vibration though. Any landing light suggestions?

I can't comment on most of the things in the email, but
I can tell you that a bit over a year ago I bought a set
of HID's on ebay, brand new, and the pair of them with
ballasts was about $110.  So, if you do end up wanting
to replace your HID with another HID, the cost is
probably much less than your original purchase.  I think
I paid $400 each back in 2005, and now they're more like
$110/pr if you find them right.
I'm assuming your HID is mounted in a wing cutout.

You should be able to find an LED that will fit into
that spot too, but you'll spend a bunch more...but you
can get a real good light too.

Just leave the pail of water outside overnight and you will have a solid
weight. ;-(
