Wedding cake tail lights conversion to LED

Has anyone converted the reflecto-lite 150's to LED's? I would like to keep the old style look on my 84 Scamp. When it comes to electric, I am not the sharpest tack in the box. Thanks Joe

Well Joe, I haven't seen that many keep the old fixtures since most people think replacing the whole fixture is the easier path to LED tail-lamp use. The difficulty is in finding an 1157 type (2 filament) LED replacement bulb that fits the bayonet base but turns 90 degrees so the directional LEDs point rearward and still fit within the old fixture.

If you can find LED's that have a removable lens cover and will fit under the cool lens on your Scamp, just cut the old lights guts out, install the works of the LED's (but not the lens) and replace the Scamp light cover. Additional water protection using a home-fashioned butyl tape seal is a good idea when putting the big lens back on.
