ha nice job vvtlr ... It was SOOOOOOOO hard doing it on the stock 2001 celica tail lamps!!!! soooo freaking hard that i only have one side done and it looks "okay" but i do get a hyper blink for the signal lights.. I think I'll have to switch to your tails then to get a better results as the stock ones are too curved to make them straight..

I'll post them up when I get a chance.. also vvtlr
did you do your signal lights?? confused

The technique is to convert the tail lamp from a 3 wire to a 2 wire tail lights using a trailer tail lamp converter you can get at your local auto parts store. with this the led assembly is able to function all three (parking lights,brake & turn signal).

Sorry, no pictures. Installation is as easy as opening the tail lights, trim the led assembly, remove the red cap of the original tail lamp, make a hole big enough for the connector to insert through and do the wiring (must have converter). It might be harder than it may sound. rice

$500 is crazy..but if they also provide the tailamps i guess its alright =P.. One single LED Lamp should run about $25 or less so for just brakes which could also double as blinkers like vvtlr should run about $50 plus materials.. JBWeld, a dremal..etc.. about $75 I guess =P..

Doing the retro on his tails are so much easier as compared to mine. So I'm not going to do the other side..=p gonna go back to stock or get tails like vvtlr

I'd be willing to sell mine off and the other set of LED amber and red stop/signal lights. Price I'd be asking for would just be at about what I paid for it. So not too bad I suppose tongue
