    Brighter bulbs for taillights HELP!!! PLEASE

    SMOKED TAILLIGHTS

    i have the rear lights blacked out with tint spray

    only problem is the 21w bulbs arn't bright enough even tho the lights look the dog's bollocks.

    anyone know where i can get brighter bulbs than 21w or anyway to improve the brightness.

    any help would be appriciated.

    Clive.

    you have to be carefull with this it melts the plastic but i have one idea, the halagen bulbs used on table lights are 12v them little spot light types and cheap enough from a diy place you just need to make up a connector for them

    I would say the brightest your gona get would be the cluster LED rear lights. You can get them from pretty much anywhere really.

    I've tinkered with these and found them to be no brighter overall than ordinary lamps, due to the directional pattern the reflector doesn't do it's job as well

    You CAN get 28w halogen brake lights... rare as hens teeth and can melt plastic too... You may have to thin them out a little
