Kevin, they look great. I want to ask you about your license plate light though. Did you re-use the plate bracket you started with, or did you find a new one that has a mounting place for a light? What light did you use?

Thanks for the pointers,
-Karen

Karen, I am not Kevin and I am sure he will tell you what he did but I struggled with the license plate light issue a little as I had seen people here buying a new light and modifying the original plate holder to get them to fit. I was at a vintage rally and the folks there who helped me with changing the taillight to LED told me to get some small LED lights that screw into the plate holder - the light is only on the bottom part of the screw. That way I could keep using the original plate holder without modifying it. The work great and were simple to install - picked them up at an ATV/motorcycle shop but pretty sure you will find them online as well.

License plate lighting. . .

Hi Kevin

I would love to see more detailed photos of how you mounted the license plate and light, its hard to tell. My square 6" lights are shot and I really like the round, so I am going to buy a pair. However it looks like you have solved my concern about license plate light, so if you could en"lighten" me as to how you did it, it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks. . jimbo

Thanks for that tip, I too, as you can see, had the same question.

Lightbulb Help!!!!!

So I bought my awesome round LED taillights from Chuck and Deb, they look amazing (sitting on my coffee table)..

Heres the problem, my 1980 scamp has 4 wires in the existing tail light (if you consider the ground a wire, then a red, a black, and a blue-which goes to the side running light).

The new round lights have three, a red a black and a ground.

That leaves me with an extra wire, and that is worse than an extra bolt or nut.

It sounds as if several scamp owners have successfully done this, please help, or chuck, any ideas??? anyone???

Thanks. .

Jeff bought a set of 7 Inch LED tail lights from me. I have been selling quite a few tail lights shipping them everywhere in the US.

White is ground, Red is turn and stop, Black is tail lights. Hook blue to black for side lights. Use a test light, plug the trailer into the tow rig.

On our 2005 Scamp with rectangular lights(Bargman 92/94) the red wire was for backup and it had its own ground wire (white). We disabled both of those when we installed lights that did not have backup capability.

Thanks Fran and Chuck, got them going. Capping the red wire did the trick, bright and shiny and classic looking. Temporarily bolted the license plate to a metal tab which was already on the bumper, will move it soon.
