Im sellin these because i sold my celi...I got so many compliments with these because nobody has ever seen them. They are VERY bright and function perfectly..NO hyper blinkers!! I am going to wait on setting a price because i want to see what people will offer. I spent weeks on these and 80 bux so im not going to make them cheap. Let me know what you think!

Care to give a tutorial on how you made them? Those are kickass! Also, what's the blue light that is where a 3rd brake light would be if it wasn't on the top like the Celica's is? Isn't that illegal? I love the lights though -- would definitely consider doing that to mine but I don't have a clue how to go about doing that.

actually i already sold them but i guess i will let you know...
1) get some APC altezzas
2) put em in the oven for a few minutes and the lenses will come off
3) cut out the red circles and the back of the tail light
4) body fill around the light to smooth it off
5) sand the whole light except the reverse light housing
6) Buy some truck trailer LED tails and stick them in the cut out.
7) put silicon around it.
8) tape off the reverse light housing and the light
9) paint it
10) reseal the lens on with silicon
11) wire up the wire convertor and your set

there ya go

In GirlSpeak please? wink Haha, nevermind... I'd probably just waste my money and fuck it all up anyway. I'll figure out how to solder my gauges and do that Sidemarker blinker conversion first and then maybe I'll attempt this.

Hi, can I just check something...

The celica break lamps has dual intensity, i.e. less bright when you turn on headlamp, and brighter when you step on the brake paddle. Can a normal LED cope with this?

Not sure if the dual intensity/brightness works by merely passing different current strength onto the tail lamp.

One thing I realize is that the brightness of any original LED (e.g. BMW 7-series) is dependant on the chrome reflectors around each LEDs, since LEDs are only illuminating in a straight path, unlike normal bulb which lights up all the surrounding areas.

The wire converter solves the brake/running light problem...it combines the two wires so the LED does all three functions...brake/turn/running light. You can pick up the wire convertor at pretty much any auto parts store (got mine at advanced auto parts) for about 20 bux. And in order for you to not a have a hyper blinkin piece of shit like most people...all you have to do is leave in the turn signal bulbs and it allows for the perfect amount of resistence. You can still see them from the side because the are slightly angled out and the reflection from the red lens helps too. DO NOT CUT YOUR BULBS SOCKETS OFF! Just tap-in the wires...make sure you have the positives!
