    21st Century tail light circuit boards

    Re-designed for the 21st century! New circuit board layout with original and new alternate wiring mode (if your original wiring harness connectors are bad), improved sockets and weather-seal coated - available with INCANDESCENT bulbs, LED bulbs or without any bulbs at all!

    Two boards with LED bulbs and LED-compatible flasher - $149.95

    Awesome!! Any chance the "alternate wiring mode" includes the option to have all three red bulbs go bright for braking?

    Looks like a nice product at a good price, with the bulbs all included. Do you have any photos of the LEDs installed and burning? With all the LED options out there I'm curious how these included ones stack up.

    You will note that there are thru-holes near the connector plating. This is so that in the event that the connector in the car has corroded away, you and easily buy a generic 5-pin pigtail connector pair (aka trailer connector) to solder in place and eliminate that OEM connector. But you don't have to if your OEM connector is good.

    PS These were on display by James at DCS - the LEDs are amazing.

    I'll put up a side-by-side comparison of incandescent and LED tomorrow.

    The "alternate wiring mode" is to accommodate owners whose tail light harness connectors have failed - the little holes in the board near where the standard connector attaches? These are designed to accept wires from a standard (http://www.delcity.net/store/5!Way-C...or-Loop/p_8774) trailer harness. Cut the offending connector off your tail light harness and attach/solder as required.

    .
    That would require the center bulb to be dual filament or some sort of diode/relay arrangement.

    Didn't PJ Grady come out with these in 2005 or something?

    Thanks Dave and James - I couldn't make it to DCS so I'd love to see the LEDs in action. It was a good idea to add the ability to use a different wiring connector, nice touch.

    How do these leds compare to the super bright ones recommended previously? I just ordered and installed the flasher relay, and cleaned up my boards but want to make the jump to leds.

    Actually, I think Grady states in his ads that he developed his version in like 1990. Back in the DeLorean One days Ed/Stephen had their own version, as well.

    I refer to these as re-designed/21st century mostly due to the alternate wiring mode...

    I've never bought any SuperBright bulbs, so that's hard for me to say. We have been using this same LED factory for several years and we started testing their LED bulbs for this project in 2012. Once dusk comes tonight I'll post some pics.

    Hey Dave,

    Will this be a good location to easily add a trailer connector for DeLoreans with a trailer hitch installed? Just curious.

    Thanks,
    Rich W.
