LED Taillights on a '68 Mercury Cougar
This video is to show how much easier the sequential taillights work on a '68 Mercury Cougar, when LED lights are installed. As you can see, the left side works faster, is 'crisper', even when the taillights are on. The one's on the right are the plain, incandescent bulbs. Notice how much slower, and longer it takes, especially when the taillights are on. I had the battery on a charger while I was taking this. The LED lights I used are relatively inexpensive. I purchased them from: www.superbrightleds.com, and they are the 1157-R24 (the wide beam), and they are $7.49 each. They last 10,000 hours, and use a LOT less energy than incandescent bulbs. They do make brighter, more expensive LED's, but these are pretty close, if not brighter than regular incandescents.
