Sell red light bulbs ! ( a pet peve of mine for 33 yeears in the parts business )
Yes, I know that’s waay too difficult due to DOT rules & regs and all that crap, but it’s high time for that to change.
After all, the rules changed about aero head lamps. Remember all the nicely aerodynamic body styles were all ruined by those glass sealed beams ? Then they finally got wise and approved plastic aero lenses.
The red ‘‘lense tape’’ is too dark and hard to see that there’s any light at all in there.
Most tail lamp assemblies are hundreds of dollars and most customers don’t have that spare C-note just bumpin’ 'round in their wallet.
Sell red bulbs and allow Joe Customer to remain legal till they can afford the replacement lens.
My point ?
Is anyone reading here close enough to the DOT to pass along the need to adjust the R&R to allow the sale of red bulbs ?
