Blown bulb . Spare becomes into another mod...

One of my reverse lights went out. wtf and I'm kinda obsessed, when something is wrong with my car I want it fixed right away! ohboy rolleyes

I remembered that bulbs # 194 and 921 have the same wedge base...

I did't have any 921, but several blue 5LED bulbs

So I decided to use them and the reverse lights adding another BLUE accent to the list. grin thumbsup cool

I like it, but I think it is illegal

i love it morris. definately two thumbs up thumbsup thumbsup

and yes it is illegal..but its the reverse lights..so look at it this way: when you are in reverse...it's usually going to be when you back out of your driveway (private property) or backing out of a parking space (private property--unless its a government owned facility). seeing as how you can't get a ticket on private property the chances of being cited for it are slim and next to nothing.

of course you can always get asshole cops that might see it when your pulling out of a private parking lot and pull you over on the road...i've seen this done before with those lights you can mount on the windshield spayers on the Hood. when i was leaving a movie theater a guy had them on and a cop seen him...the guy saw the cop too so he turned them off before he left the lot but the cop pulled him over anyway. don't know if he got a ticket or not though thumbsdown

it's only illegal when you backup tongue

the light is off when you are driving forward

... so unless you are driving really fast, backward down the street - chances are that no one will ever know laughsilly
