Retrofit OEM Taillights

Finished my customized OEM taillights. LED tubing for running lights, 2007 Passat LED inserts for brake and blinkers. I like how these turned out. They are much brighter than the camera can capture, and no part of them is amber, they are bright red through and through.

I like these a lot more vs the k2 ones. If I get tails I want them to be a solid led ring vs the k2 led rings.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

On second thought if I get enough I can have a different kind of tail light every day of the week! Only need 4 more sets after the ones your making me now haha

Thanks! I thought of using K2 fixtures for these since they show a more pronounced ring versus the stockers. Maybe next time

Haha I was telling someone the other day: Taillights are like bow ties. You can have more than one set so you can pick the right set for each occasion. Accessorize!

Well as far as I know I have the only set of IRL tails you've made so that's not an option yet. And if you saw the rings in them you'd have to buy this 3rd set Rob

I'm actually making a second set for a local IRL Andrew. Turns out the aftermarket tails do come apart so that save a bit of money

There you go so you don't have to charge a crazy price with scraping a $100+ set of tails.

Exactly! Planning to have Powell's set done by the end of this month. Should be something unique
