Skyline Tail Light Mod Question

Hey guys and gals,
I was looking to install LED rings into my reverse lights. I was wondering if/ where people bought just the led rings? or do i have to buy a regular set to chop them up to install into my rev lights?

Dodge Dart Ralley Edition
Acura RSX Type S (2x lol)
Saturn ION Redline
VW Jetta 1.8T
Honda Civic SI
Scion TC
Dodge Dakota (lol)

. . . it will continue to grow.

If you already have the K2 LED tails with the outer rings the cleanest look is to get another set to (literally) chop up and put the ring in the inners. (see my profile pic)
You can get LED strips or rings on Ebay for both but personally I don't think that looks "OEM" enough. Of course I'm kinda biased

Many ways to skin a cat...

I put LED chain in my lights facing inwards to give it a solid ring look and in the day time you can't even tell I've done anything to the lights, looks stock, cost me next to nothing and a few hours on a rainy day so yeah.. I'm happy with it.
