funny point but I think Surface Mount Technology is clearly understood that it is pertaining to circuit boards.

It's not just the time it takes, it's the toll on the health of the capsule. While it may be helpful in reversing, I usually am in and out very quick and don't conduct my reversing move with the intricacies of a ballet.

Re: Reverse lights

Re: Reverse lights

If anyone is interested in trying out the new putco 921 LED bulbs for a discounted price let me know. I would love to get some detailed pictures showing before/after, etc..

These bulbs feature high quality Nichia LED diodes for max light output and colour consistency.
