What did you use for the under-grill brake lights? I would like to do the same thing on my 914. Thanks!

I have something similar on my 356 and plan either on top or under the grill of the 914 when I put it together. Every bit of light helps with our old, small cars

Hi BillC - I have not forgotten about you. I am just having trouble finding out where that LED came from as we have had it sitting and waiting for about a year. I will keep looking.

BillC- I spoke with the guys and my LED was a part of a buy that included two others and this was the last one of the 3. They do not recall where it came from but it is 12" long. The best I can do is shoot a picture of it when the car comes home and then send that to you so you can hopefully match it. They tell me this coming Sunday they will wrap the car up. Apparently the horn was not working and they just needed to give it a final clean up. It's has already had the final polish. Jim was pretty confident it will be ready for me to pick up after Sunday. If that is the case, I will be down there the following weekend to bring to her home. Sorry for the delay. Michael
