I thought you would be interested in my latest upgrade. Here are some pics of the new LED tail lights that I just added:

Someone on the se7ens.net had the boards made up. A nice improvement on the stock item. :)

Oh yeah, how much weight does it save?:D

Actually they are heavier than the stock units, but are quite a bit more eye catching that a regular bulb.

Unusual name... :rolleyes:

edit -- Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I always thought that the Caterham tail-lights looked like something that was stolen off the back of an RV, so I am installing LED tail lights too. I am also installing new rear fenders (From Freestyle) that are 50 MM wider than the original Caterham fenders. I will also be installing a longer De Deon tube.
My LED lenses will be flush with the fender when complete. The pictures here show the lenses a little proud of the fenders, because they have not been sanded flush yet. They will be sanded when the fenders are painted to match the car.
We had to fabricate brackets to mount both sets of LED on each fender. The brackets are mounted inside of the fender. The LED lights are from Watson’s Streetworks.
The top LED bar is the running light at half brightness. The outside halfs of the top bar are also the turn signals at full brightness and the inside halfs are break lights at full brightness.
The lower round lenses are the backup lights.

Hi Rod,

Cool setup! I'm sure Moose would approve too, they must be lighter than the stock units. ;)
