Mike, just clarifying that I need 4 modules,, 2 per side?
I'm getting s pair of lences from redhotcomet, there is snow on the ground :evil: so time to be in the shop.
I'm in the process of learning how to remove the chrome trim rings from the lences as I have a broken one to practice on.
If anyone has experience I would like to hear (well read) your experience.
If I come up with something I'll post it.

Yes 4, I have found them as sets of 5 on eBay for $10 or so, that is what I bought last time, so one spare.

That is something I want to know for sure so make sure to share what you learn, I will most likely go back to my original taillights when I dig them out, the only reason I bought the set I have now is my originals are full of spiderweb looking cracks, but everything is ok as far as I remember :roll: the current pair one is good and one is cracked and has a bent ring.

See Ya,
Mike

Well I got the sequential taillights to work on the bench. Mike wasn't sure if the system would work with incadesant bulbs cause he had switched over to l e ds. I didn't want to spend about $120 on 6 bulbs so I worked it and yes incandescents work!
The adjustable led flashers he talked about in the vids also work and allow sequential speed adjustment.

Go for it, Bruce! They would look best for a '63 S-22, IMO.
More pronounced flashy effect! :D

Hey Guys,

If I do this on my S-22 I need to add b/u lights or go without. Here's a few photoshop options... What do you guys think?

By License Plate...

Or Rear Panel...

You beat me to it! I was going to suggest #2; add Custom backup lens on inside, replace white center lens w/ red.

The ones on the rear panel look more "factory", IMO.
