Mine went a few years ago, the metal clips crumbles in my hand. I did the LED strip, but because of the weather the outer coating kept cracking and letting moisture in and killing the lights. Then I tried these bolt lights:

DO not bother with these, they don't put out enough light to satisfy most cops, they are intended for the much smaller motorcycle plates. Now I have this:

Only issue I found was it put a lot of light straight back at cars behind you, so I taped the part I needed light to come thru and painted everything else black. Works pretty good and the cops leave me alone now.
Somewhere there's a DC10 struggling to get off the ground. I'm not a fan of wings on street cars, I like low key spoilers, but not something that you have to custom order from Boeing.
