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.

tails on without brake



Brake light


The custom fitting

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