Default Tail Lights

I Picked up some lens from pep-boys they are called "Racers Edge Safety Reflectors" Basically they are oval shaped red plastic reflectors just like the lens on a car mounted in a black plastic housing. I cut out most of the back of the housing then used double sided sticky tape to attach it to the body. I then used a body reamer to make a hole big enough for a piece of fuel tubing to be used to hold the LED in place. I used shoe goo to hold the fuel tube and led in place. This is the result:











I'll get up some how to pic's if interested and also some better shots of just the reflectors and some day time shot of the body for the full effect.

That looks really good and much better looking than just putting a light behind a sticker. Good job!

They come in a pack of like 8 so I have extras.
Next time we meet up I'll give you a couple.
I'm off next Sat & Sun. We should set up a GTG.
Scale rigs & 2.2's hell bring the supers too, LOL.

Update: Lights still working great.
I'll probably use them on any build they fit.
Jeep, maybe blazer.

That is a great look!! Looks just like the Grote lights I used for taillights on my 1:1 Bronco.

I'm gonna see if I can find those. We don't have a Pep Boys around here so I'll check the other chains.

I bought them from the pep boys in san diego.
I'm in GA now so I can look about.

As for the round ones I can't say maybe a half inch, not sure.
These are usually located in the section near trailer lights, and reflectors.
That's what they are reflectors.
