I have heard many sedan owners complain that there aren't any good looking aftermarket LED tail lights available for the sedan.
I recently made this set for member in my local Cobalt club.

I used the LED ring from a set of K2 coupe LED lights, used LED bulbs for the side markers, a flashing center bulb for the brake lights & blinkers, and a bright CREE bulb for the reverse lights. I also used the BuyHID's LED conversion for the 3rd brake light and tinted all three fixtures with a smoked vinyl.

What do you guys think?

I will post some nighttime pictures later this week.

And yes, I know the 3rd brake light is crooked, we're going to fix that :)

I personally like the ipcw lights better but looks good
I do like the clear smoked lenses on the ICPW lights but not the internals. To each their own :)

I really dig these. There's something really clean and sharp about LED rings on these sedans.
They look pretty awesome. Youre good at making those lights lol

Thanks guys! It was actually fun figuring out how to make this work. The hardest part was taking the OEM lights apart without breaking the lenses... Let's just say there was a bit of a learning curve there lol

Messing around with some different ideas, this is a feasibility study for a set of double LED tails for the sedan Cobalt. Still a lot of work to be done, but I like where this is going ;-)

Now you come up with these.

I think a 10Ω 25 watts would be sufficient to alleviate hyperflashing.

Haha, sorry man. But they're just an experiment at this point. Don't even know if I can get them together and at what price. On the resistor I wanted to play it safe. The coupe has two of those LED rings...
I'm shipping your light today BTW. Tracking to follow!
