Thank you for the compliment!
It isn't that I have have a lack of willingness to do this for other members. It would be expensive because at this time the only source of the LED assemblies is from existing mirrors. Even if I were to manufacture a small quantity of PC boards and make several sets myself, there is still the plastic housing which is an integral part of mounting and protection from the elements. Finding alternate methods of accomplishing this effectively and professionally could be quite time consuming and not cost effective. My bigger concern is if I were to break a mirror in the process. Generally once the glass is mounted, it isn't intended to be removed. Although it can be done if a lot of care and patience is used, breakage is a real possibility (and costly one). I had some extra aftermarket glass and heating elements I purchased from an internet vendor handy just in case of emergency (although I normally wouldn't use it because it didn't seem like real great quality and didn't have the blue tint). I won't rule out the possibility, but I'd have to think it over.
