I just got a hold of some LED brake lights and reverse lights and have been inspired by the new Lexus's (Lexi) to get rid of those old yellow licence plate lights. has anyone tried to do this or know how?

About to try it... Problem being the NA plates are side-lit, which might make it not so good looking.

I'd like to see someone try it with a bracket/mount from the bottom of the trunklid up underneath the lip of the trunk.

They're LED's encased in the bolt, it's also a security star key for your license plate. You can prolly find some cheaper, but I know for a fact these sumb!tches are bright!

Why wouldn´t get some big led's and hook it to the original locations. Normally led works on 3,5V or so. But you can get some with 12V and hook to a stabilizer.

If it were only that simple. The bulbs are aimed directly toward the rear of the car and have reflectors to shine the light to the sides toward the plate. All of the LED's ive seen would just project the light straight ahead and none of it would reach the plate.
