Introducing, The First Ever 1st Gen LED Tails
 
These are the first LED tail lights for the 1st gen focus in the world. The idea came up when I smoked my tail lights, and during the day I feel no one can see my brake lights and I dont want to get rear ended. SO, I came up with the idea of custom making LED tail lights for my car. The LEDs are the type you would put on a trailer or a truck or something of that nature but from the outside you cant tell. The LED pods have 64 leds inside and are easy to wire up. I havent installed them on the car just yet but will once I put the last finishing touches on them. Please let me know what you think.

Cool Idea, but I'll half to wait to see it on the car. How easy is the wiring?

FocusFreak09 10-21-2011 09:12 AM

The wiring is just 3 wires like the car already has. A ground, a brake light, and tail light.
