I found a great blog where someone had done exactly what I wanted to do....
Just Finding Our Way: Bright Lights
Also Here (but not on a Scamp):
So far so good!! I have replaced the left, the right light
should arrive tomorrow. It is nice to see a comparison of the two (see pics below). The pics don't do it justice, they are really significantly brighter. Worth the time and effort, especially for daytime visibility.
Pictures are here, with more pics to follow:
A few things to note if you decide to try this simple upgrade.
1. The wiring is a bit different. There is an extra white wire (you only need to connect 1) and a red wire. The red wire is a backup light, which isnt used in the Scamp
(at least not my model) and it can also be capped. So, you will just connect green to green, black to black, and one white to white.
2. I did caulk around the light as well. the bulbs are self contained, but the wiring is partially exposed on the back... the light snugs to the curve of the Scamp
well, but a small bead of sealant/caulk (I used a white tub and tile- mildew resistant) will remove any fears of water getting to the wires.
3. These lights are asymmetrical. When ordering, make sure you order 1 left (with license
plate holder) and 1 right.
4. You will need slightly longer screws. I suggest stainless steel 3/4" #8 pan head screws. You will also need to drill 2 new holes (the bottom holes will line up), and while one of the top screws will be covered by the new light, the other will be slightly exposed. If you caulk as mentioned above, you can fill the little hole in, no biggie.
I will post more pics after I get the other light installed tomorrow.
