In the rear running/brake light light you installed LEDs..?
They look a LOT brightrer than the ones in the '80 Interstate we have now...It would be something I would seriously consider doing...
Are they 1157 bulbs..? What LEDs did you replace them with?
Any special size-shape-style to make it light up the entire red light box ..?
I like LEDs....

There are two 1157 bulbs in there. I tried several different ones until I found some that were bright enough that I kept. I got them from eBay, seller http://stores.ebay.com/warden-jp2002?_rdc=1 - if you search for "2pcs BAY15D 1157 13W High Power LED(Red) Stop/Tail Bulb" you'll see them. I also used the amber 1156 version of that bulb for my turn signals.

Lastly, I got a flat, white LED panel from superbrightleds.com and mounted it in the bottom of the taillight lens, to illuminate the license plate. Normally the running light does this job, but with the bulbs replaced with red LEDs, it lit up the license plate red instead of white. Putting the white LED in there fixed that problem.

WingAdmin, I asked to see installs because I had seen a youtube vid of a 1100 that I thought was very creative. It turns out it was YOUR video. lol. I liked the Bluetooth and garage door openers, that was original. great job
