Reverse light bulbs

Postby totta crolla » Sat Jan 14, 2017 10:15 am

I'm looking at options to make the standard reversing (back up) lights brighter. I can't add lights to the rear of the car so I will need brighter bulbs to fit the standard fittings.
Tried and tested ideas if possible please.
Thanks

I got china LEDs (wide diffuse) for my protege.

I can actually see things when I reverse and they are pretty cheap.

It's retro. Reminds me of my uncle when he would have the woody woodpecker play as he would put his van in reverse. So 80's

that's cool, it's just that reverse light beepers that aren't in fork trucks or construction equipment remind me of old people who use them because they would otherwise kill people and cause accidents with their lack of situational awareness.
