Ford Mustang S550 is Ford's first globally released Mustang and has been a great success. There are slight vehicle variations in different markets. In particular, all USDM Mustangs have RED taillights, that only have RED sequential LED bars inside of them, while all other international Mustangs have CLEAR WHITE tail lights that comes with 2xRED (brake) and a single Amber (blinker).
The demand originates from 2 main sources.
The first one is that USDM owners in the states simply want something that looks different. May it is the color of the lights; maybe its the color of the LED bars or maybe they simply wants a different look to stand out in the crowd.
The second source comes form a more 'legit' reason. Some USDM Mustangs are directly imported into overseas market, but the full RED USDM taillights are illegal (no Amber indicator), they had to install the EURO spec tail lights instead. Hence they needed something to adapt the USDM body modules to the EURO spec tail lights.
EPM is a Automotive Technology company in Melbourne funded about 1.5 years ago by a group of established and passionate blokes each have been successful in their own fields such as telecommunications; electronics R&D, aftermarket car modification franchises, etc. It is dedicated to niche but quality car ad-dons that truly adds value to their owners.
Solution & Application
EPM has already completed a prototype for this application. The prototype has been fully road tested. We needed the market indication to justify the continuation of the production of this product.
In fact, to adapt the USDM body module for the EURO spec light is no trivial task. The full documentation of this product and its installation is available here on our blog.
If this project is successfully funded. The production process shall take around 2 months. And we will fulfill all backers via our usual online shop.
Your Support is Needed
Please share this with Mustang owners or businesses with the same needs if you wanted to have this product realized in the next couple of months.
Risks and challenges
There is no risk in terms of the quality of the product and its production execution as we have a proven record in successfully established a niche market from just a couple of product ideas, and the similar products have already reached product maturity.
The only thing that stops us from committing to a further production of these particular kits is the market demand. We are not sure how much demand is there. That is why we wanted to do a crowd funding to see if the market demand is there to support this product. As long as we hit the funding goal, we will be actually be investing more money in the production for bigger batches.
Please share this with Mustang owners who are looking for the same. I think globally we should be able to find a least couple hundred users who have the same desire.
