Deutsch-Style DC Connectors are available from McMaster as well as a few other places (for less $$'s).

I like the look of these so much I'm going to jump. Found a pair on close-out prices.

There is scant info on them, I presume the are completely sealed so you can't flip flop the sections and one would be mounted upside down?

Even though I have the giant incandescent lights from the Austrian rehabs (Euro TD lights), these look cleaner, possibly brighter. The TD lights have 5 sections (3 with these LED) so I will have to figure out what that's about when I get into it. I think there is a rear fog circuit on the Austrian rehabs iirc.

May have to install some diodes in some of the lines depending what happens when 5 signals goes down to 3 or 4.

The LED ones your going to install are super bright esp the white backup lights
They are like a low flood light
They also are shallower so don’t sit proud (to be damaged by spare or need the large spare stop)
