    Turned both rear reflectors into brake light in conjunction with fin brake light for under $ 10.00. Exacto knife cut the back side of the reflector, insert LED, wire it up, use double sided tape and ready to go. I bought two new reflectors from local auto parts store but you could use the original ones if you want.

    Did you put a hole in the plastic and route the wire up through to the back brake light or did you just use the wire outside to the brake light

    Added two more reflectors this time orange and put Leds in them. These are independent and I turn them on with a switch. 20151126_123338.jpg 20151126_173327.jpg

    Well it's been almost two years since this module was installed, this inexpensive module is still going strong.
