Just to clarify... The key thing about this and the SunGun is the light output. Unless it's the same as I have mentioned above it's not the same as the SunGun. LED won't give you the same output as the SunGun.

I'm not trying to make a random swirl-spotter here. I'm making something with the same output as the SunGun which is recognised by the detailing community including amatures and pros alike as the best device for checking your work.

Grant, how's the backspacing from the light to the rear of the case?

enough to get a little fan in there so amiller wont have a leg to stand on?

fantastic work mate, can you PM me where you got the light from?

Cheers!

Does nobody ever read threads! It clearly states at the bottom the bulb was supplied by Svenlight!

Brilliant work grant.

Jordan, why do you want a fan? It don't matter if the sun gun has one but for nearly 10% of the price grant has made a cracker! I would never in a million years have bought a sun gun, especially given the price. But this I'd buy/make?

Thanks for posting this up Grant, saves me the effort of having to create a separate thread of my own

The 14.4v light is now very tempting...
