I saw, someone already made this here, but our volvo-maniacs (dealer electricians) also make it serial now on S60 and XC90.

What do you think about it?

Love it! +1 on knowing how it was done, that's really cool. I think it would look really cool on a XC90/60.

Its not a diod tape, each diod separately soldered into taillight. It's wide diods with 120 degrees luminescence corner. For 4 XC90 taillights (it is divided on 2 parts on XC90) was used about 130 diods.
Sorry, but I don't know any more technical details.

I like it.. on a side note I need to go back to Russia as it has been close to 13 years now.

I like it. Can only imagine how much soldering it required...

on a side note. xman, you have to go, really.. I've been back only twice (05, 09) and difference was huge. For you it will be a different country. My kid loves visit there and we try to give him a chance at least every second year.

nice remark, but LEDs would be more correct.

That looks really good. Why not use premade strips? would they not fit?

I like it mostly.

Can you tell me how they opened up the tail lights without breaking it and how they put it back together? If you happen to know or can you ask the maniacs themselves?

I was going to do something similar, but the time involved to drill out for each LED, glue it in, solder, wire, etc, is just mind blowing!

Great job with a neat result!
