Default Let there be light!

Today I installed an Adjure diamond cut license plate frame and some license plate LED's. I used 80 Watt CREE LED's in the new housing and boy do they throw some light!

I was tired of opening the door or lowering the window (Dark Tint ) when I backed into my parking spot at night. Certainly don't want to curb the wheels! Shouldn't have that problem anymore!!!

Thanks. The best part about the bulbs is that they do not require a ballast. Plug and play at its best! Now the entire exterior lights have been converted to LED's and HID's in the headlights and fogs

The forum rules do not allow the promotion of a seller that is not a forum vendor I believe. If I am wrong, I certainly do not mind sharing in the post!
