Default Trick!

If some of you haven't seen these, you may want to consider getting a kit. I love mine. Never thought about until now, but I'll turn them on when the judge looks at my car. Probaly extra points.

1965 - 1966 Ford Mustang Sequential Tail Lights: Electrical &amp Taillamp Bezel Kit

Cool upgrade.
But I think me and the installer have a different definition of "tightened down".
That thing was still looked like it was "flopping around".

I noticed the same thing, but none of mine have moved, however, it might be a good idea to use a bit of red loctite.

That was the easiest thing I have ever done to my car. Unfortunately, it hasn't been on the road since.

Pretty cool! I like the idea that it doesn't alter the lamp housing and is easy to go back to stock if needed. Someone had a good idea!

On their kit info, it shows a turnsignal module too. Is that required to change out too or something for the "click" noise?

Did you have to do any special wiring for the brake lights? Do half the lamps illuminate when headlights are on? Then when braking and turn ALL lamps come on?

I did. It doesn't show anything about the module. I looked at their website too, and one instruction manual has it attaching some brake wires with mods.

+1....Looked like it would be sitting on an angle after you hit the first bump.

You need the LED flasher unit as the LED lights don't offer as much load resistance as the filament bulbs and your old click will probably 'think' there is a dead bulb in the circuit and cycle much faster. You can add a dummy load inline with the LED unit(s) to compensate or get the proper flasher unit. Swapping out the clicker is easier than wiring in the dummy load(s)...and probably the more reliable solution.

I've had them for a couple of years now and they haven't shifted at all. They are also much brighter than the 1157 bulb.

I agree - it looked like his idea of tightened down was a little different than mine!
