street legal brakelight

Recommended Posts

I want to install a brake light switch on my 400E, with only two wires going to my taillight, how can I end up with a "taillight" and a "brakelight"

Well you need either a 2 filament bulb and socket(3wires), or add another lamp seperate brake lamp.

Many different ways of achieving it. Don't know if anyone has tried changing the socket in the existing lamp, but I would guess most add another brake lamp. Personally I would change to a new lamp that incorporates both.

You'll also need a switch and wiring from the front brake, or rear, or both if you want.

I wouldn't think of swapping out the one burned set up and the SM I now have. It's the coolest back taillight I have seen for an SM and it's staying on mine. Thanks Eddie that's one very bad looking rear end. prairiedawg :):):p
