I and a fellow co-worker made them, were still working on some other lenzes for them but they do work good. Yes the backup light is pretty sharp.

They seem pretty bright , I'll mock them up in another week and see what kinda distance we get with them and try and compare them against some other vehicles.

Be forewarned - LEDs won't work w/ blue-dots! The dots won't pass the mono-wave length light and look black.
