Yeah dude, we should definitely do up led-tail project. I think it would look really sweet. Especially if we took the tails apart, and made out own LED circuit boards, soldered them. then put them in. It wouldn't be too hard to do in theory. We could pull it off well in practice.

When I take my lights apart again, I'm going to put in the white ones.. but for your car I think that amber would look really good, especially if you still have the orange strips in your lights.

Either way, I think I'm going to take out the amber strips when I put in the LEDs. You really think the LED's would look good shining through the strips instead of standing alone kind of like the Audi drl's?

I think srikid's look absolutely sick. But at the same time it would be nice to keep the parking lights amber, but just look better than stock. So I don't know.

I ended up buying blue led strips that I plan on putting in eventually (broken oven and don't feel like going out and buying a heat gun for just this). But what I did end up doing was putting a 5 LED bulb in the parking lights and going for 30 SMT LED Switchbacks for the corners and I gotta tell ya, I wasn't expecting the Switchbacks to be this bright :thumbup:

Midnight, no lamp posts nearby and just the corner and parking lights on!
