Re: Rear number plate lights

no worries,if they are too bad,the rear bumper will need to come off to access the mount bolts that are on the bumper bar,takes bit of time to do but is quite a simple job

Was thinking of maybe mounting some new led lights above the rear plate and tap into the original feeds to work off the sidelight switch will see what happens to the original lights and see if i can sort something out lol
