LED Lights on 87 345 rear tail/turn

I found great led lights to replace the old bulbs. Takes about 30 min for all four lights.

These are the lights I bought from Auto zone.

After all is connected put new LED lights in leave out back up lights so you can reach behind to hold the back as you put lens back on. Only two screws will hold the LED light housing in when you screw back on the lens. I chose to order new lenses and I used all back up lenses to show up the LED lights better.

The only other thing I may do when I get the chance I will remove the back up light and just make all three stop/tail. I already have two backup lights on the lower part of the Moho.

Each light cost about $24. And I have 4 little leftover LED lights to use somewhere else on the Moho. Yea! They were the little ones that need to be removed to make new lights to fit in the housing.

New Lenses from whom?

I see you ordered new lenses. Did you get these from Vintage Supply?

Also did the color come out alright using the backup lenses. They look like the old "Monarch" 4" lens.
