no one sells or makes LED tail lights for the Celica.

what some people do is retrofit Trucker LEDS into APC Carbon Fiber Housing Tail lights.
of course you can retrofit LEDS boards such as the ones on Semi's into most tail lights of the 7th gen. thumbsup

speed_celica, can you post up a pic of your LED tails?! I would love to see what they look like, I so wished them made them too...something that kinda looks like the BMW 3-Series style.

yeah, pics are a must, maybe we could generate enough interest to take a number to him and ask him to produce that many. But, I'd need to see the final result of the lights in order to know that I wanted them. THanks for the help btw.

speed_celica wave you may want to put some plastic polish on those tails it should shine them up real nice Linked Image


when i get more funds i'll have to try the LED tail lamp retrofit again

I did with a stock assembly but i couldn't aim the led's at the right angle as it's harder to do with a bar of led's instead of a circle one like those..

anyways's here's my go at it..

speed_celica here's the specs and i dremeled away the plastic cover just to make it fit..

Linked Image


i purchased mine off ebay and it's Maxxima brand a bit more expensive than other bars but brighter happywink http://www.maxxima.com


Maxxima is one of the best brands you can go for 25yrs experience.. and used in commercial applications...


but trying to put them in the clear area wouldn't be so easy frown thumbsdown plus
