There are small things when building an American Muscle car in Australia that if you don’t get right could cause you problems later down the track with authoritys. One such thing is your reverse and tail lights. In Australia (well NSW where I live) the law states that your reverse lights can be white but your turn signal must be amber. Now there are many in Aus who have had their cars passed as stock, some due to keeping left hand drive and others maybe by sheer luck. Either way I will be trying to adhere to every letter of the law when I go to get my old girl registered. Which brings me to this cool little product I stumbled across.

Mustang Project
are selling this kit, a Dual Colour 67-78 LED Taillight Kit. The kit is essential two parts. bright red LED’s for your rear brake lights which for me I don’t think I’ll use I don’t mind the original dullish red brake lights, but we’ll see. But what I’m really interested in is their combined reverse light and turn signal which they claim “having applied our unique patent pending technology to create an amber turn signal inside of your existing back-up lights. That’s right you don’t have to cut holes or add extra light fixtures to get street legal in many European countries and in Australia.

So as I see it, there’s two LED lights inside your existing rear backup housing, and wired correctly you have your white reverse lights an your amber turn signal. Brilliant!

Each kit comes complete with two LED ( Light Emitting Diode ) modules ( one for each side ) to fit in the back up lamp housings, 2 super bright red LED modules for your existing taillights, and an electronic flasher module.

Here is Mustang Projects explanation of how it works. “Our NEW improved design works as follows: When you activate the turn signal the amber section of the back-up light flashes on/off at 1/2 second on and 1/2 second off. If the car is placed in reverse the center super bright back up LED illuminates. Red super bright LED modules give you better and brighter brake lighting.”

What’s better they also have a similar setip for the front lights. I surely will be placing an order for these shortly!
