Now thats what i'm on about i like 2 make things up and B 1 of a kind


I've seen similiar tail lights (two days ago actually) on a VS Commodore, obviously as a two-piece per tail light. A mass produced product retailing for about $300/pair. There must be a manufacturer out there that makes these for EF's/EL's? Nice job if these are "one of a kind".

:?: Just a bit of a thought. With those LED's. Do the LED's allow for tail light/stop light combination. That is, do the LED's illuminate "brighter" when you apply the brakes?

They most certainly do.

They actually have a 'dim' and a 'bright' setting. I've seen some other LED setups (on other cars/manufacturers), where for tail lights, they just light up fewer LEDs. I made mine, so all 40 on each side change brightness.

It'd be the same process. Hardest part is separating the lights themselves so you can get to the inside.

They're Advanti wheels, not sure how much I bought them second hand. They're no longer made by Advanti and require adapters. Ebay will probably be your best bet.
