My original plans were to rewire my taillights so the current running/brake lights would now only function as running lights and the turn signals up top would now be the brake lights. I was then going to make the reverse lights amber turn signals (because I have always hated the look of red turn signals). But I didn't want to mess around with making some custom reverse lights.

So the new plan (if it is legal)... rewire the running/brake lights like stated above, but keep the reverse lights normal and install some LEDs in the reverse lights as turn signals. Would that be legal? It's not often that I make turns in reverse so I don't think both bulbs will ever be on at the same time lol. I figure I can wire up 2 or 3 LEDs in there. Has anyone else done this or thought about doing it?

I know for a fact that reverse lights have to be clear / white.
Turn can be clear/amber/red
Brake lights can be red

I don't plan on replacing the reverse light with one that is amber, that will stay white... I will be installing new amber LEDs in the same area of the light fixture as the reverse light to act as turn signals.

Mines an 01 and the brake light and turn signal are intergrated into those damned circles.

I had the idea of modding them with LED's however.

Gotta love a free mod! A dremel is all it takes, and there's a how-to on here if you're interested.
