Like my old friend Pooks Dad (Jeff Coen) posted before me... great kit!

I ordered a snowflake 62-67 w/amber conversion to go on my 63. I'm so happy with the results that I ordered another of the same kits for my 68 Vert!!!!!

Mahalo Chip!!!

What an improvement! I put the new tail lights on my 6v 59 Beetle today and can't wait to take it for a drive at night. I feel much better about letting my wife drive the car. Product is well made, shipped promptly, with great communication from Chip. Great experience!! Thanks

Chip did everything he said said in a timely manner.
Email replies were prompt and product was shipped when he said it would.
The LED snowflakes were very well made and the install only took 15 mins.
Excellent upgrade for safety.

Just dealt with chip asking about the 62-67 kits and way I didn't see the ad for them any more as I was looking to get a set. He was amazingly quick to email right back. It was 1am here in Denver and he still was emailing me. That is dedication. He gave me another way to get the kit and the info on where to get the relay needed for them. Even basic info, he was a help and was honest about it all. Great seller!!!!!

I'm very happy with the LED tail lights and 6 volt relay I got from Chip for my '61 bus. Easy install, clear directions and great communication. Thumbs up from me!

Two thumbs up!!! Chip's LED snowflake kit was quickly assembled and shipped, had great build quality and came with clear directions. Super easy install, but I made Chip aware of the tight fit inside of a Wolfsburg West's reproduction plastic lens (He designed these to fit the OG glass lens). I feel MUCH safer driving my Beetle with these super bright LED tail lights.

I just received a set of snowflake leds for my '60 beetle.
The craftsmanship is great and the install couldn't have been easier.
Clear instructions and every part needed was included.

Chip was super easy to deal with and promptly answered the questions i had before ordering.

His led pattern lines up perfectly with the lenses.

Another satisfied customer for Chip's Snowflake LED lights. I was pleasantly surprised to find the received lights to be built on a printed circuit board, and extremely well assembled. This is a solid product, and a very nice upgrade.

Yet another satisfied customer. Quick production, shipping, and communication. Just installed 6V LED lights on my 60 Beetle. I definitely feel MUCH safer now. Be sure to get the optional 6V electronic flasher for a good flash speed.

I ordered my snowflake LED tail lights from Chip about 2 weeks ago. I already knew it was going to take 2 weeks for him to make and ship them, since they are made-to-order. He kept in excellent communication throughout the process and answered all my questions, even emailed me instructions before I purchased.

I received my lights today and already installed them; very easy to do. The difference in brightness is huge! Here are before and after photos. These photos are both just the night time running lights (no brakes applied since I didnt have anyone to press the pedal while I snapped photos).

Also, although the "after" photo makes the lights look blurred, it is merely how my camera dealt with the brightness. In person, they look so cool and really highlight the snowflake pattern.

Excellent and thanks Chip!

Just received the second set of Chip's lights for another project here at Type One Restorations, what can I say that hasn't already been said. Great products and great service.

Thanks again Chip!
