New Tail Lights

We made it back to the house in Santa Rosa, CA. Friday afternoon.  While I wait for the wheels of the medical industry grind ever so slowly onward I am doing a few projects.  You will recall Tracy and I driving together south to Quartzsite, AZ.  Following behind she noticed she couldn’t see my brake lights, especially if the sun was shining on them.  I had no idea.  “I can’t believe no one ever told you.”

These are replacement lights I installed several years ago when the original lights failed.  Some thing I picked up at Autozone or the like while on the road.  Well evidently they weren’t worth a toot. 

There are brake and turn lights lower and as you can see with Gracie back there they are partially hidden.

I had already ordered replacement lights through Amazon before the medical issue came upon me.  I waited until their Wednesday delivery before starting out on the long journey back to Northern California.
Now there are 11 LED brake light bulbs on each side and I added LED turn indicator lights which were not there before.  This took far too long to install (electrics not my strong point) but this is now much better.



  1. It's a good thing Tracy told you about the lights! Did you two exchange phone numbers or plan to stay in touch? -Mary

  2. Well done... always a good idea to have working brake lights!

  3. Thanks, Hope you work out whatever's going on health-wise..
    I've spent hours enjoying your travels..I've been to many of them myself.
