990 SD Cheap LED Tail convertion

Postby sam46 » Tue May 22, 2018 8:44 am

Ok after trying a few different LED intergrated tail lights and having all but one fail on me i decided to convert the original myself.
Having chopped the back end of so my plate (massive i know) is flush with my evo pipes, then realising indicators dont have anywhere to mount and would look crap anyway.

Simply ordered two rubber capless 501 bulb holders from fleabay, and Two orange led 501 bulbs.

Drilled two 10mm holes in the bottom of my tail light.

Then wired indicators to these.

I also upgraded the stop lights to led.

And added some orange led strips to the sides just to add a bit more light to indicators.

Dont get me wrong you'll prob have your mot tester moan about them. So either find a nicer more understanding tester or pull indicator fuses, tape up front indicators and mot it without. Technically you dont need them to pass mot :)
