Yeah, I'm sure my explanation could have been better. I have not solved the fast blink issue yet. I know that I need to get an electronic flasher, but I don't know how to integrate it into the car given how the original flasher is installed from the factory. As I said, I've seen a couple posts about it, but no resolution as of yet.

Here are some pics; sorry for the delay. Seems that some of them have the bulbs showing a little orange, this is not the case. They are a true red, not the red - orange like normal white bulbs. I think the picture that best show how they look are the close-ups, esp the last one. That one is with the brakes on (obviously).

I did not get a chance to open the lenses back up and take shots of the actual bulbs. If you look here: http://frickinbrite.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=42_79, the picture to the right of the text "High Power Refractor" is exactly what they look like. The base is red for the tail lights (that'* a picture of the white bulbs) and I assume the amber'* base is orange. The three bulbs on the end have a chrome plate around them, covering the tip.

You Do Not want any LED bulb that just Faces out. they will look and work like crap.

You want LEDs that put out light like a normal bulb, 360* direction.

The Tower LED lights are the only wants that will really give you the best look and brightness.
Its like like a normal bulb, if you take a head light bulb and just turn it on out in the open with no reflector it will not be that bright and will not light up much.
But if you add a reflector to it, then it wil be blinding and also light up where its pointed a lot better.

Did Napenthe get the right ones?

Also Napenthe picture 101_0112 where is that? Did you use LEDS for the middle brake light? And what bulbs did you use for the license plate?
