Default L.E.D. Tail Lights (My Take On It)

Okay, so I already have L.E.D. tails that I got made by a member here, but I decided to experiment myself and create another pattern so I can swap them at will. I am almost done and will post videos as soon as I get them finally tested and they work as expected. If anyone is interested, I can convert theirs for a certain amount of cash. Here is where it stands so far:

Looking good, I have been working on mine with a similar set-up with the rings and CFL rings too. I don't know about the led on the sides though.

You can't see the LEDs on the sides through the lens, because they are transparent. They are seen on the pictures, because I used a flash and took the pics very close to the tails. I am still debating if I should just use a circle for a turn signal or the one I have in right now. I will see how it looks installed and decide then. What I like about the ones I have in now is that they illuminate the whole side part of the lens, while a circle would only illuminate part of it and won't be seen on the side of the car...

Hey Ilian,

Hope the car is doing okay since that water incident.

Of course I would like to see some night shots and what if you did just a plain rope around the border or the inner-lights.

kinda like this.

As soon as I get them installed, I will post some night shots and videos. That will probably not happen until a week from now, because my car is at the shop, awaiting a new head gasket set (trying to see if that will fix the coolant leak). Once I get my car home, I will plug in the tails and see what happens. The LED strip along the contours of the tails is a very easy way to do it, without the need to manufacture a board. I abandoned the idea for this set though, because the circles in the turning signal compartment will compliment the running/brake lights better.

Okay, I completed the tails and snapped some crappy photos of the final version...

Some more pics... Basically, the lights operate as follows:

Tail lights = three circles on each side.
Brake lights = two circles on each side.
Turn signal = corner contour.

Hmm gonna need some better shots... maybe a shot with the car slightly angled and a tad more light. Looks interesting.
