I bought the LED I used for my tail light from there. Pretty simple install. Double stick tape the new LED to the old LED mount. Hook up to stock wiring. No need to wire resistors. I used a 3 in white LED. Still got 3 left actually. They are pretty bright and have a slightly blue tint

I've been wanting to replace my tail lights and all turn signals with LEDs for a while now.

I found High Tech Speed (listed above) but wonder what other products are out there too. I like High techs, as they are programmable. I'd love turn signals where the LEDs have middle fingers going up & down personally. I wonder how many tickets I'd get for that ...

So you want individual LEDs? You could buy a couple of LED strips and glue them onto a board. It might be easier to buying a bunch of LEDs and then soldering the LED + resistor onto a circuit board.

building leds w/resistor onto a board doesnt get much easier plus the arrangment options are completely up to you unlike a led strip, which is also more expensive than a perfboard.

Well Paul wouldn't be spending the money if he didn't have it now would he. why spend what you don't have

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I'm nutty about having bright lights in my tails and turns. And the SV has passable lighting. If I can remember WTF the bulb number is on the tail lights (I can only find Suzuki Part number), I'm going to cobble something together for myself from Oznium.

I've been an LED addict for a long time!
