Here's the skinny on the latest lightbar (3.0) It uses 30 groups of 3 LEDs for a total of 90 LEDs.
I hope the photos help give a better idea on what to expect when you pull the covers off the rig.
Jose, EB5AGV, suggested an external circuit in order to simplify the dimming function. It was a great idea and I took the liberty to put his callsign on the board design. He deserves the all the credit on that one.
Here's a shot with the front panel tilted down showing the external dimmer board.
It neatly fits where the CLF inverter was once mounted.
The orange/green/white wires above the connector are for a remotely mounted pot.
In this case the pot is located under the top panel access cover of the MKV.
