Considering Digi Tails LED tail lights for my 67 Chevelle - advice?

I'm considering having these Digi Tails LED tail lights installed in my 67 Chevelle. Does anyone have these in your car?

I don't have them but I like them. Extreme Performance Products makes some for the 71-73 taillights and I like them. I say go for it.

Re: Considering Digi Tails LED tail lights for my 67 Chevelle - advice

i am unhappy with the output on my 69 for what its worth.
digi tails i bought from opgi catalog
daytime the brakes are just not bright enough
maybe its the design, the way the board is mounted is not close enough to the lens

Re: Considering Digi Tails LED tail lights for my 67 Chevelle - advice

LED lighting is a funny set up. To get the most out of your lights they should be SQUARE to the rear, If they are at an angle you do not get the full effect of LED.
I installed LED ( Stop & Tail ) in my 70 Wagon, At first they SUCKED, WHY?
They were sitting at an ANGLE so I shimmed them up so they are SQUARE to the rear, NOW they are VERY VERY BRIGHT and just PERFECT.
For a test........ The LED lighting from the factory or any big truck. When you are in the direct line with the light it is fine, Walk a bit to the left or right and then You may see the difference. My LEDs in my wagon are fine, And the are not bulbs they are Square boards with a gang of ( HI & LOW ) LEDs.
Do some research on different types of LEDs and then REACH for your wallet!

I agree with others, don't waste your money on LED. I changed mine back to reg. bulbs.

I used these ([ame="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01D8BT40O"[/ame]) and of course a new flasher ([ame="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XS8VX2W"[/ame]) and am quite happy with the results. These bulbs fit just like incandescent so they are really easy to swap in. Here's the result:
