I used plasma LED's from West Coast Classic Cougar. A little pricey- BUT- Very Bright.
The photos show the brake light & tail light intensities.

Took my tailights out to rebuild (clean and paint). Can someone remind me where the ground wire connects.
Is it under one of the mounting screws that mount the housings to the panel?

This link no longer works. Is Pete still making tail light harnesses?

Yes the ground wire connects under one of the housing mounting screws. So I just installed the new trunk and tail light wiring from Pete at coral snake but am having an issue. The brake and turn signals work fine but the tail lights do not. When I turn on the headlight switch the tail lights do not work but the right reverse light turns on. Anyone have any ideas? The car doesnt even have a reverse light switch installed on the shifter, old owner removed it.

Does anyone know if the license plate lights is a ground circuit for the tail lights? I dont have a bulb socket connected to the trunk harness?

Thanks!
I am also looking into a new harness from Pete. My wires are good but the sockets are real bad.
