My Custom "Ferrari- Style" LED Tail Lights

I customized these aftermarket tail lights so that the inside lights have the same red LED ring as the outer ones, and installed a white LED backup light as well. Then I wired them so they behave exactly as the outer lights (running lights, brake lights and blinkers).

The Skyline mod has smaller LED rings in the inner lights, which I don't like. That's why I dubbed this the Ferrari mod lol

this is EXACTLY what I want to do, where did you get the LED rings for the inners and how big (diameter) are they? and how did you wire them to the resistors and such? it looks GREAT

Thanks. I simply bought a second set of these aftermarket lights and cannibalized the outer lights to get the LED rings for the inners. I plan to make a how-to this week, and will post the link to it in this thread.
