Over the weekend I got pulled over for a dead license plate bulb. Turns out the bulb was fine, but the contacts inside were super corroded and the bulb was getting intermittent contact. Even after scrubbing the corrosion with a wire brush I couldn’t improve it (gently shutting the trunk was enough to make it flicker on or off) so I ordered completely new housings containing LEDs off eBay.
They might be a bit too bright. I’m going to have to hit them with some of that spray on tint that bros use on their taillights.
So bright you can see them during the day!
