Default led tail light assemblies installed in my 68

led tail light assemblies installed in my 68
http://www.uapac.com/antique/1968-ch...left-side.html
i'm still amazed about the led tail light assemblies from United Pacific that I installed in my 68velle.
it said on the package "Designed in USA" - but manufactured in Taiwan
the most amazing part was that after i removed the metal bezel retaining the tail light lense assembly
the complete new LED assembly that came preassembled and sealed in a new tail light lens assembly;
IT actually fit the housing exactly.
i was able to reassemble the housing and bolt it back on the car in a matter of minutes.
i connected the light plug into the original socket and pressed on the brake pedal.
man they are BRITE, 50-leds per side put out some light.
it certainly appears that i finally got a good product that was easy to install and that i got the product that i paid for
it fit awesum, it looks awesum, i'm like its about time, so i thought i would clue in others that have been thinking about this type of product...
this is how brite the tail-lights are
brake lights are even brighter

Looks good I was debating on LEDs, I went to 2357 bulbs after a couple of horn blowing close calls, but still don't know if they are much better.

These are the Digi-Tails I put in my car. Also put LED headlights in from a company called MP.

I put LEDs in my 68 conv about 8 years ago. The kits and installation have gotten much easier since I did mine, used a kit from Shiney Hiney and had to splice their wiring into the existing tail light wiring, but it has worked well ever since!

I want the LED's on mine but with the 72 they are round and don't look as cool as they do say on the 70, or the rectangular tail lights. What do you guys think ? Should I just do it?
