    Exclamation LED tail light

    hey
    i was looking at buying these
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....=STRK:MEWAX:IT
    however the guy informed me that only the brake light leds were included and i would need to buy the indicator and reverse led which are load resistant
    anyone got any idea what load resistance i would need?

    If you were doing each LED, I would say a 470 Ohm resistor at 1/4 watt. How many LED's does the indicators and reverse LED bulbs have? (can work out the resistance for you )
