LED taillights are custom made. I'm not sure if there's anyone still making these. I was going to attempt it myself, but I just haven't found the time to try it out.

Re: 97-01 prelude led taillights

general knowledge of soldering and electricity should be enough. there are lots of cheap led suppliers on ebay

If you want them bad enough, do the research. Not to sound like a dick but it really is a lot of work, even to plan everything out and get parts prior to building them. I would be willing to give you all of my info from when I was going to make them in bulk - but you don't appear to be putting forth any effort in finding it on your own let alone willing to do the work yourself to make them.

Your average LED's on ebay are not the proper ones to be used in something such as tail lights.



And these require a little more than "general knowledge". It's quite a bit of research for even someone that has a basic understanding or electrical background.

Re: 97-01 prelude led taillights

I've seen people buy up ebay LED tail lights then cut them up and fit them to the OEM lights. But I've not seen anybody do it successfully.

I have done my research on bread boards, and the resistance needed for a small number if LED's. the part that confuses me is the lights staying on compared to them all on when brake power is applied. Soldering and electronic DIY isn't really my thing, however recently I been trying more. I wasn't aware until recently that most were purchased in a group buy. I haven't seen any either until recent.
