    Default Brake light led mod

    Had some spare time today and a spare light housing from the scrapyard, I disassembled a 921 led that had stopped working long ago and soldered the wires from my LED strips into the 921 led base, after reassembling it all, in my opinion it looks great.

    Nice to see people are still building shit rather than just buying it!

    Yeah I'm more of a DIY guy and had some spare parts laying around at the time. A lot more visible than the stock bulb.

    Did something similar to this with an old LED 3rd light from a Kia Rio. Cut the board to fit and made one. Sick of the OE bulb ALWAYS burning out. Good work.
