i think he is on about the max power led rear number plate lights. currently i have them and they really dont show ur number plates so the police may pull u over and also they do say not for road use.

I can do you some white leds in chrome holders, will look neat above or below the plate. Use them as plate mounting bolts too, look trick fitted with red leds and connected to the brake lights.

yeah sierra/granada ones, me stubbsy and Jaffa have/had them
cost me 2.50 for 2, and only needed one - Id send u the other but think I threw it at a cat

Neway if u go to a scrappies, make sure u take a pair of wire cutters with u so u can cut of the connector bloack and the light unit; dont just take the light unit - its a simple job to fit and wire up as well

and tbh - why people ever think of using leds or washer jets etc - makes no sense - these are designed and made as no.plate lights and are a fraction of the price

I've got the Lite Boltz from Demon Tweeks.

If you look at the top right and top left of the number plate you can see them. They shine down diagonally onto the number plate.



I've never been stopped by the police either!

thats wh yI dont understand wh ypeople buy them when they can get lights designed for the job which are slimline - discreet and more of a doddle to wire up


and yes the cat definately deserved it - damn things
