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

hard part with my tails is the aiming of the led's.. stock seems brighter.. If I'd do it again on these type of tail's I'd only do the Signal light.. thumbsup
