just thort i'd unleash my new concept for the EB taillights!
I kno they are very ricer but i'm hopeing that they "mite" look alrite wen there on the car...lites arent fully completed as the red lens i've put in have to be put in properly yet to stop the yellow lite commin from underneath the red lens...

so thorts? critisims? ideas? hit me!

Get three red dots in a row, or more evenly spaced, and I dont think they look all that bad.

i suppose i could use leds...dunno
but the red and amber bits are just plastic inserts when ya take the lens off.

I was under the impression that Australian standards dictated a red reflector be in the brake light section?

It's fine now but ReGiE suggest replacing that with LEDs and removing the reflectors - something that would be illegal under Australian standards as I understand them. Even the LED lights they sell for trucks have a red backing on the brake light section.

A mate of mine has done is taillights in his Lancer rally car with LEDs.
Used a lot of them as well ... all backed onto an board ... and plugs into the normal light cluster socket.

Not that cheap ... cos he used about 100 LEDs all up in each cluster.
Works a treat ... and extremely bright and crystal clear as well.
Also they turn on and off quicker than normal globes.

If you got the cash ... it's well worth it.

i wish there were just screws! hehe
i found this link
http://www.fordforums.com.au/showthread.php?t=4949
and this one fairly good read
http://www.fordforums.com.au/showthread.php?t=5799

the basic concept is just cuttin round the edge of the taillight with a warm stanley knife...thats all i did altho i used a steamer to get the glue all gooey to make it a tad easier for myself!

good luck with it if u try something!
