LED tail lights, third brake lights ?

I'm looking at LED's for the hot rod. Does anyone know anything about Lambert Enterprises products? They have what I want, just curious if anyone has used thier stuff.

Superbright LED's

Try this site.
I installed a few of their 5MM bright leds in my dash to indicate fuel pump on [blue] , TCC converter engaged [white], and cooling fan on [aqua green].
Even though I used the correct resistor [560 ohm], they are so bright there is no way I can drive down the road with the fuel pump on [blue] led blaring me in the face. I had to install a resistor 39X as much (22K ohm} to dim the led down to a reasonable level.

I used Lambert.

Tail lights are total custom design lens (by me) they (CNC machined). They built a special LED circuit board also.

Center-high brake light is a Lambert standard product.

Works great, looks great.

However, they couldn't make an enclosure for the circuit board.

They can make anything you want. You need to design it.
