There were some pretty down to earth plans on sequential  tail lights on the Maverick forum about a year back. They looked very easy to build as was explained there.

Keep us posted, been considering the bulbs for my 70 Javelin, but as already stated there are a lot of poor quality LED bulbs that don't last and so not illuminated as advertised.

I haven't been on here in a while. 
No word yet from Matt at Digitails. 

If your interested in getting a set in the future please send them a message. It will help to show interest so there will be a better chance of them making a standard retrofit.

Thanks

I am also currently mocking up a set for my 70. Has roughly 30 LEDS per side and has built in sequential turn signals like the Shelbys. I have all the parts and an extra  tail light assy for fitment, just need to find time to see how it works out. 

LEDs use way less amperage and will be cooler and last forever....when I step on my brakes now you can watch the volt meter drop..that's how much power drain those 1157's are.



Glad to see I'm not the only one that is thinking of upgrading to LEDs. They do offer a lot of benefits.
Yesterday I sent off the tail light housings and back up light to Digitails for conversion. The plan is to have  them flash sequential and I am also going to see if they can have the back up light light up with the running lights. I think this would give the back of the car a unique look when cruising, and the more lights on hopefully gets peoples attention to avoid a rear end collision. 

If everything works out I think I will also convert the fronts to LEDs. I figure they will look  something like these from a 69 Camaro. And since I run orange Hornet front lenses it will be very close.

Having the back-up light on with the side marker lights may be illegal. Most state laws address vehicle light colors quite specifically and a white light burning if You aren't backing up will not meet some specs.  I learned a lot about this after getting nabbed for X-mas lights on the roof rack of My Jeep.  Colors other than yellow and red are for emergency/ safety vehicles.
