Thanks for checking out these custom, handmade LED lights for 55-61 bugs! The purpose of these lights is to provide a faster lighting, brighter and an overall safer alternative to the stock style incandescent bulbs normally used with the stock light assembly. The running light is made up of 24 LEDs that are strategically placed behind the snowflake design in the factory lens. When lit it gives the snowflake a cool glowing appearance, not normally seen with the factory light bulb. The brake/turn light is made up of 29 LEDs. These LEDs are arranged in 5 vertical bars that will catch the attention of drivers behind you much faster than your stock setup. They also give the classic light a very modern LED appearance when lit.

With a total of 53 LEDs per side, you are sure to catch the attention of other drivers on the road, so you can now focus on enjoying the drive in your classic or custom VW, instead of focusing on the rear view mirror hoping that the car behind you can see you.

These lights are compatible with both 6v and 12v, because they are a nice addition to ANY bug, whether it be cruising with a bone stock 36er, or tearing up the town in your big HP monster.

The lights will function just like your stock lights do, and only need one additional wire to be added(included with purchase) in order to provide a good ground(no more random light out issues!). Installation is very easy and can be done by anyone with a couple simple tools.

LENSES NOT INCLUDED. Photos with lenses are just to show an example of an assembled unit.

I have added the option to add 22 more LEDs and an additional circuit to these lights. This will allow those of you that are converting 62 and later bugs to snowflake lights to keep your brake and turn signal circuits separate. NO MORE NEED FOR TRAILER LIGHT CONVERTERS! It also provides a turn circuit for those of you who are trying to come up with a clean method for adding turns to your semaphore equipped cars. LEDs available in RED or AMBER, both show their color through the red lens.
These 22 LEDs can also be set up as additional brake/turn lights giving you even more visibility. Please specify if you want them built this way. This can be done only if you do not need the 3rd separate circuit. Price is the same as the 62-67 style.

PLEASE let me know if you are using aftermarket lenses(WW or CIP1)! The fit is slightly different, and can be accounted for on my end with notice.

****NEW****I now have found 6v and 12v White LED 1156 bulb replacements. These are great for license plate lights, and front turn signals and park lights. They are not the same warm color that you are used to, but a brilliant white color instead. These are great if you are trying to get a bit deeper into your LED conversion than just tail lights.
