A few weeks back I tinted my tail lights and as a result the crappy factory reverse lights wouldnt put out enough light. So I took a page out of my Tacoma mods and did this upgrade. The schematic was done by a Tacomaworld member. I went to NAPA and bought 2 Sylvania 886 light bulbs. Then cut the bulb off at the base, put a small bead of solder on each electrode. It plugs right into the factory socket. Here is what you get. Keep in mind, I only had one in for the pic so you can see the difference. It may not look like it but the right one is CONSIDERABLY brighter.

Thanks for sharing. But why not go LED?
And it is not the crappy bulbs fault you painted the lens black

Brilliant! I'm gonna steal that one and hook it to my backup license plate frame :tu:
Any news on the redesign of those frames? Mine are also peeling like crazy, it's kind of embarrassing having them on the Lexus :beatsme:
