In a conversation with other Ford owners on another site one was trying to figure out how to make a circle of LED's. Another told about using Brightstar super bright low power replacement 1157's in Bright red. I bought a pair thru Amazon for $17 +tax and with free shipping had them in 1-1/2 days from near San Paulo Brazil. USPS could learn something. No change to the flasher only changing the rears and I have the reflector stop/turn conversion which may help. When living near South Little Saigon in Orange County Ca. you need all the help you can find. Photo is just the tail lights not the stops..

Wow, that really makes a huge difference.

What reflector modification did you make to the housing?

None. The housings were replacement chrome ones 2 years ago. I have read where painting the white helps too. They are the red LED’s as recommended not the white.

I tried some of the replacement 1157 led's a few years back but wasn't happy with them. They put out more light if you are looking at them straight on from a ways back. I guess on the road that helps with vehicles behind you but I was disappointed. I wondered if one of those strip lights could be coiled to fit behind the lens but haven't tried it. I've seen sheets listed on ALIBABA that can be cut to fit but I wasn't sure enough to order them.

Y's guys rule!

CASCO offers the LED board to fit behind the lens. Standard and Sequential setup.

Here's the '56:

Pretty pricy!

I bought the Brightstar bulbs for my '38 Ford on the recommendation of the post on the "other forum". The '38 has small teardrop shaped lights and need all the illumination they can get. The Brightstar bulbs really work well. I also have LED strips in the back window to increase my chances of being seen. They have the brake/signalhttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/94ce8827-bd15-4e74-93c8-6a0b.jpg light function in them, too. I'm going to order some for the Mercury wagon lights in the '55.

Just received a set of the iBrightstar red led's  (Amazon) and put them in my 54.  BIG difference.  I'm a believer
