Postby Classic Finn » Wed Sep 26, 2007 7:22 pm

Heikki, most of them are rather plain and not nostalgic about 'em...the best or favorite of mine is the type that looks like they were on an old style Beetle...I believe Grant sells 'em as do most any Beetle parts suppliers...I would think they would be available on your side of the pond.....

Thank You Kurt.. The 2nd choice you show is about the same as the one Madjack likes for VW,s..Not much difference in price considering I dont have to ship from the USA...

Look Very Nice... How easy would those be to change over to LED?
Since I know (not much about electrical) :lol: :lol:

Thanks Again Kurt.

I have this in use as just a taillight and license light.
With a dual-filament bulb with the correct wiring, it could be a third brake light as well.

I just bought that exact same pair of tail lights from eBay vendor jandbauto30 for $50 for the pair - Shipping was very reasonable too at $9.95

I'm sure they are probably made in China, but the quality is excellent - All polished stainless and the lenses are real glass
