LED sequential tail-light kit install

Something else I found on the forums, a LED sequential tail-light kit.  I ordered this kit from Classic LEDs in Oregon, and seems to be of really good quality.  From what I understand, these are made by hand form a very nice older gentleman.  He uses the best quality LEDs, not the cheap ones you see on eBay.   The kit has a LIFETIME warranty, as long as your the original buyer and I have called the customer support line a few times with questions.  The owner has answered every time and was always more than helpful.  I love the sequential turn option.  With the press of a button you can turn this option on or off.

The hardest part of the install is to split the lenses, separating the lens could be tough with older models, I was fortunate that I had recently made these clear tail-lights, so separation wasn’t too bad.  The kit comes with a wiring harness, it’s a bit much, but once you spread it out and identify what goes to what, it all makes sense.

After all the rubber insulation is cleaned out, I fit the LED panels in and traced an outline where each panel sat.  I then ran a generous bead of silicone adhesive around the outline and placed the panels in.

After the panels are secure, it’s time to re-assemble the tail-lights.  LRS sells a tail-light installation kit with all new clips and  a roll of butyl sealer.   Sometimes you can re-use these.  I’d rather have new stuff to ensure a good, tight fit.

After leaving a few days for the silicone to set, it holds pretty well.  I then purchased a tail-light lens kit from LRS, which includes new clips and rubber insulation.  After installing I sealed up the lens and clamped it together with clamps and left overnight to harden.  Next is to follow the instructions and wire up.

I also added this LED 3rd brake light I found on eBay

Installation is straight forward.  Remove old light and the new one has harness plugs that connect to the old bulb housings.
