LED Tailights

Post  DaveG on Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:37 pm

Hi All
Has anyone used LED Tail / Stop globes in a TBird,
If so any dramas. I'm looking for something a little brighter than the existing globes.

Dave you sure the shiny chrome on the housings aren't the problem?
I cleaned and polished them inside and got them much brighter Very Happy

Yes I done that with my Valiant nice and bright.
Yellow globes for indicators are red for stop and tail lights, but I put the small LEDs in the dash.

Maybe the red globes might be better.

Nick i put a chrome type foil in the tailight housings when i re built the car so as reflectors they are great.
