as long as you don't affect vision and brightness of it and all reflectors are kept, you should be fine

Well you could meet all the requirements, but they'd still be illegal until you pass testing - which requires 10 finished sets be sent to the testing authority.

heres my tail lights . I moulded a clear lens off the original first . Then found some leds that would fit in . The 2 little lights are my brake lights and are red luxeon led lights ( the same as you get in DRL's but red) then i moulded up the surround for the lights and painted it. come to think of it , it would have been a much easier job if i had have put a clear lens on the standard light instead of the clear frosted lenses and just used coloured globes
