No, we killed the driver while trying to get it out (we had to because the LEDs leads were destroyed). Only the low modes still work. My modder didn’t have time the past few months. Maybe he will do it soon.

OK, this is my 3rd modified Prime Pro:

I'm getting much better and only made minor scratches to the MCPCB and the LED shelf.

Installed a 219C sm503 R9050. I got lucky this time, no visible green cast (to my eyes)

 

Left most side: OEM TIR optics + AR coated glass lens

I really like this Prime for it's interchangeable TIRs. Next to OEM TIR are the generic MIC 15°, 45°, and 60° TIR optics bought from Ebay/Aliexpress (I forget which) for about USD 1/pc. The protective glass lens can't be used anymore with the generic TIRs, but who cares.

 

When you buy generic TIR lenses like these from Ebay/Aliexpress, take the labels with a grain of salts. I find the degrees are not consistent with the beam shot results.

 

Undamaged cables, clean removal of the rivets, some nicks at the shelf. No biggies...

This time I was too lazy to coat the internal with white reflective paint, I put rolled 100 g/m2 photo copy paper instead.

 

You will see later that this simple paper trick works like a champ!

 

The paper trick is enough to make the lowest firefly mode unusable for some nocturnal. Pictures below were taken using the brightest 3rd firefly mode with the same exposure setting.

 

The 15° optics is my favourite. Much better than the OEM. Wide hot spot with minimal spill.

 

Perfect fit and best of all...still water tight
