'54 tail/stop light upgrade.


Just wondering if anyone has managed to improve the 'heart' stop-lights? In these days of extremely low standards of driving, I am concerned that the stop-lights on my '54 are a bit hard for the idiots to see.

Is there a 6v LED upgrade for these lights? I would prefer not to add extra stop-lights (last resort), and certainly do not want to change the appearance of the existing original tail lights. Any ideas?

I have sent an email to Chip Birks who made my led lights asking about 6v hearts. He should reply in a day or two.



I read it on samba, so it must be correct.

Sometimes Volkswagen dealers sell spare parts. Amazing isn't it!:lol:

Phill, do you know if these lights still function as tail lights and stop lights? They sure look bright in the picture - I wonder if that's on 6V or 12V?

It does not say whether the price is for one light set, or a pair. It could work out very expensive...

Don't know about the voltage. It's a bit hard to understand from his ad.

Mine cost around A$220 for the pair.
