I got cleaned out of the first batch of kits shortly after the new year, but all parts are now back in stock to assemble more kits.
Each kit includes a ¾ x 1 inch circuit board, all necessary board components, and a male-female pair of Micro JST 1.25 connector pigtails also. The pigtails make connecting the board to the led strip within the car easy, and allows for future separation of the car roof. Everything you need for converting a passenger car to much more realistic current-regulated LED lighting.
The kit is all thru-hole construction and assembly is quite easy. After you have done a couple it takes only a few minutes to assemble each module. Assembly and installation documentation is included with the kits.
The “DIY Lighting PCB Build” pdf file provided by forum member Ted Wilson is an excellent reference for board assembly. My installation tips pdf will guide you as to how to install them in the passenger cars. These references are both attached below. Many more details can be found in the earlier forum topic:

Please note these kits are tailored for the DIY enthusiast. They are intended to fill the niche for the electrically capable hobbyist who enjoys electronics assembly, but does not want the complication and expense of ordering boards and small lots of the various components required to do the job. They are NOT intended to compete with any other commercially available ready-made products.
They are easy to build but you do need basic tools and soldering skills. You will also need to order some strip led reels; 12V 3528, 5m x 300 leds per reel, in either warm white or white, your choice. These are readily available on ebay, AliExpress, or Amazon for a few dollars each. One 5m reel will usually do two 5 or 6 car passenger sets. I can provide ordering details if needed. Using these kits and ordinary strip leds, your total cost per car should be under $6.00 all in! How great is that
Kit price is only $4.00 each, in lots of 6, 12, or 20+. Shipping for the 6 kit pack will be by bubble mailer at $6.00, and the larger 12 and 20 packs by USPS priority mail small flat rate box, $10.00 to anywhere in the contiguous US. Priority mail includes tracking and basic insurance. If you are interested please shoot me an email, address is in my profile.
I am also including one free observation car marker led board with every six kits.
