My name is Dan, and I'm the owner of Hi-Tec Designs, a designer and manufacturer of automotive lighting systems.
Recently someone contacted me claiming to have purchased one of our windscreen lights through King Penn Industries, but the owner of KPI (Robert) had just passed away and they lost the wiring instructions before the install was completed. Now this struck me as quite odd since we sell directly to the public, not through distributors, and rarely provide vehicle-specific wiring instructions (the S2000 and 350Z being current exceptions) due to the wide range of roadsters on the market. Only in checking through our records did I discover that Robert had purchased a handful of lighting units back in November of last year as an individual and not a company.
As with all companies that wish to last, our reputation is of the utmost importance, therefore I had to know more about any company selling our products without our knowledge. This thread is the ONLY reference I was able to turn up with KPI listed in it, but the lighted windscreen reference seems to mean I'm in the correct place.
First off, my sincerest apologies to the family at KPI for their loss... I'm not sure if the loss is common knowledge here or not, but I'm sure some condolence PMs to his email would be appreciated by the family.
If the other members of KPI read this thread, I would be happy to work with you in continuing to supply the Sky community with lighting products for your windscreens and other associated products. Although I did not see any pictures of our products being used to light KPI screens, the fact that KPI customers are coming to us directly for install help says they are being used. The LED systems currently shown on the KPI website are of a single color, but I would like to make it clear that Hi-Tec Designs uses tri-color LEDs allowing our products (and anything they're attached to) to display the entire rainbow of colors
. We will gladly work with local Sky owners to create a vehicle-specific set of wiring instructions to be shared across the community, as well as help create custom designs, but I will leave that up to the owners here. Please note, we typically do not supply the windscreens themselves (again, the S2000 being a noted exception), only the units used to light them.
I am a highly active member under the same handle in the S2000 community, both locally and nationally, so a background check on my high level of customer service is easy enough to verify should anyone wish to do so.
If anyone has any further questions, please feel to send an email. Keep the wheel side down and the wind in your hair!
