That looks really good. I think I am going to look for some taillights now. But instead of using amber I just might use some of those chrome stealth bulbs that glow amber when lit.

Good Idea... I didn't know they made bulbs like that. Are they just as bright, or a little dimmer?

I just thought of something. Couldn't you get a 3157 bulb socket and use a 3157 bulb? Wire up the backup power lead to one of the filaments and the turn signal to the other? Would that work? In my head it does.
actually it would work if you used a dual color non switch back led 3157 that has both yellow and white leds

I bought these carbon fiber taillights used:

I tried the converter method that's in the library, but on my 93, all the lights worked except my brake lights:icon_confused:

So I decided to do this mod but changed it to my likin by puttin the 921 third brake light sockets below the brake/taillights, as I didn't want to forfeit my reverse lights. I will try to get some night time pics in the next few days.


THANKS for the idea & info!!!
