Hey guys, i replaced my EL tail lights with the EF version awhile ago but i couldnt find an amber globe with a straigh pin arrangement at the time, so had to buy a clear one and use globe paint to make it amber. My problem with it is that its not very amber and quite dull, so i bought an amber LED globe, one with about 20 or so LED's on it, but thats almost impossible to see during the day.
So what suggestions do u guys have for me? I just wanted a more vibrant/brighter colour but the LED's only seem to be good at night.

Thanks

go get a set of looms out of a EF or AU as they have the holders for the orange globes......

simple swap over, plugs just inside the boot area each side.

Thats true, i think they'll be pretty hard to find though, most of the tail lights etc for EF/EL's are gone at my local u-pull-it, might have to try some wreckers maybe
