Hi all just quick question looking at putting new number plate bolt lights on my picanto in blue are they legal ? The reason for this Is because my audio gear keeps popping them with vibrations ! :( and can't get to remove bulb lol

Doh no Dano boy. But I would think if it were red it would be ok as long as the number plate was still visible and the led light did not cause a glare across the plate in a way that you cant read it.

Thanks Davy :) think might give red a go because like you say don't look as bad . It's a bummer because got blue interior lights and undercar neons :D which I know are defently illegal ! Because had few slaps in the wrists by old old bill for showing off on car parks and side of the roads !

Thats correct Paul for the number plate lights but when you use a number plate bolt light the light shines straight out the rear pointing to following traffic. By law you cannot show a white light at rear unless you are reversing. That is why a red LED would be ok acting as a rear marker light.
So Dano would need to retain the original number plate lights.

"ah rope lights yes now i know about them they go around the house at xmas"


what you need is the flame thrower



weld a spark plug about 4 inches in from the end of your tail pipe then fit a pump sprayer nozzel two inches before that run a tube to the pump sprayer and fill with petrol fit a coil and plug lead and hey presto a flame thrower do not use whilst stationary unless you want a melted bumper

Hi Guys

Changed both front side lights AND number plate lights for HI output blue LED's, looks cool as my SE is blue.... not had any problems with the old bill, i supose they take one look and think " that old git should know better" , might be a problem at MOT time though.

LED's should be less prone to vibration damage unlike fillement bulbs !

OH and one more thing , the wfoer needed to get the front light assembly out of the car is scary !!!

Speaking as a cop if the car is altered from standard in the lighting area then its a no no but it would be a very hard up bobby that would have a go at you.
I would suspect a motorcyclist bobby would be on to you as they are gits. ha.
