hey why don't you keep it as it is, and change the wiring.... ie make it a repeater brake light???

that means you will have extra lights on braking??

just a thought

I did this mod a while back too, instead of useing new sockets though, i pulled some from the tail lights of a kb laser. these also have tabs on them which just happen to be a pefect fit to screw them into the same point as the wiring connecter!

after doing this mod i was cruising down the highway and noticed another astina with the same setup, i guess i just figured out who it was :wink:

As soon as i can spare the $20, in they go for me, but it could be a while seeing as i just had to buy uni textbooks (like i need to know all that stuff anyway :roll: )

i did my remaining AUS-spec tail light yesterday. (now they match!!!!!) it came out really well. used the globe, wiring and globe mount for the tail/brake light from a 121 metro (demio) found at the local wreckers. took about 2 hours at the most, and i filed out openings around the hole so the globe mount goes in and twists like a factory one. (looks almost stock)

$10 for the parts, 2hours labour for me, like i said, thats at the most. certainly worth doing this mod.

saved me a few $$$$ over buying a new jap spec left taillight assembly.

Yeah i just done this mod today aswell! The bad thing that happened was i bought the globe sockets from supercheap and got the wrong ones....instead of coming on of a nice, they just come on when you brake, but thats cool...still looks awesome.

Cost me $21 since i had to buy a drill bit and some extra wiring!

Hey Guys,

I am new here and saw what you had done and thought it was a good idea. Went to the wreckers and bought two globe holders from a mazda that are brake and tail light ones for $2. Am going to try and fit them today. WOMBLE

Just finished, used a 25mm holesaw and then a hacksaw blade to make the slots and they fit like the factory job, looks good. Now to look at other tail lights in SA to see if anyone else has done it.

You guys would be happy to know that my grey astina has also had the mod done. I chopped the original globle sockets out of a car last time i was at the wreckers, so I also have parkers and Brake...cost for me was nothing and I used my soldering iron to make the holes. Even made them the same shape as the original so I got the whole twist and pull thing going on to remove them. hehe
