Hello All,

I am writing you all to inform you that after nearly 3 years of making LED Conversions for Lucas taillights, it's time for "Lights Out For Lucas." For a number of those years, I have been "Undaunted by the Darkness". The Prince of Darkness has been slowly reclaiming his domain, in the form of declining sales and interest. It has been a good fight and I have decided to retreat to higher ground. :(

2007 will be the last and final year for anything Lucas orientated from Bulbsthatlast4ever. One product will be affected right away, the 679 Model line-up. Of course the other model lines will also slowly follow as the new year progresses. :cry:

Many people have been singing praises about these products. However, praises does help offset the cost of the producing these. :roll:

I would like to thank you all for your help and each of your contributions to the cause. :wink:

I will also continue to repair any units that I have ever sold throughout these past years. :D

Please feel free to share this information with all interested parties.

Thank You,

Lights Out For Lucas Update

Hello All,

I am sorry to inform you all that I sold the last 3 679 LED Taillights yesterday. I will not be making anymore for direct sale, only for distribution. :shock:

A private businessman has agreed to become a distributor for this particular item. For more details on this announcement, please visit my forum at http://bulbsthatlast4ever.com/laborator ... d.php?t=61 . :D

Thank you for interest and all your patience. :!:

A friend who owns a Triumph TR4 sports car wears a shirt with the logo "Joseph Lucas - Prince of Darkness" on the front. On the back it says "the reason the Brits drink warm beer is that they have Lucas refrigerators"

A bumper sticker on the car reads "the parts falling off this vehicle are of the finest British craftsmanship".

Seriously though, when at N-V, the biggest grief we had was with Lucas, who made wiring harnesses and supplied all the electrical bits that weren't made in house. Their basic attitude was "you're such a piddly-assed little account, you don't have any clout with us".

I tried to get Bosch and other European parts to replace Lucas, but was shot down on the basis that "the market place expects British bikes to have Lucas".
