Default looking for BRIGHT led strips

i washed my car afterwork and when i got home i noticed the left portion of my center tail is brighter than the right side.
i give it a little smack and heres what happened

i smacked it again few times and its back on right now, but again same problem, upclose you can notice the left side is brighter.
so i decided to do this project again and re-led it i guess

so im looking for really bright LED strips. i bought the ones from Oznium before for work and it wasnt as bright as what i have now, the ones i have now are just perfect.

any ideas on what might be as bright? the ones i have in right now are off a catera, and i dont think i wanna go thru the hassel of finding another catera tail light

might as well i have the center piece apart, i might throw in 2 led strips instead of one, one at the top for parking lamps and one at the bottom for brake light, if i didnt like the way the whole center lights up for the brakes ill just make the top and bottom as parking lamps again this way its bright for sure

what do you people think/suggest?

I've purchased many lights from this place (for the VW'*) and they do awesome work for a decent price. I HIGHLY recommend them.

Hey Sam,

I would check back with V-LED, there the ones i got my LED strips for in my headlights and there very bright. They also come in all different lengths and i'm almost certain they have red as well. Mine were something like $19 for each strip (24 inches) or something like that so its pretty reasonable.

Im anxious to see what route you go when redoing this setup!!!

I read a post on another forum in which a member bought some led strips from them and redid his taillights with them. I think he had a youtube vid. I'll see if I can find it.
