Not done yet, after talking with the Traffic guy today, he said the trick to LED's are the reflectors, and suggested turning the leds around and letting the light hit the reflectors. I may go one step futher and get a couple rolls of aluminum reflector tape and re-line the reflector to make it shinier. this should help the 1156's also. I guess the consept would look like this, rather than just a single beam off the leds. We will see, stay tuned.

Hey Larrybl, I've been :watch_over_fence:  on this thread. Just a thought, paint the reflector area white. A white background will reflect 90% of the light that hits it, while a mirror will only reflect 70%. White paint will be economical as you probably have some on the shelf.

Well, it was quick work re lining the reflector, and I think this is a better way than paint. Plenty left over for Hulk"II's reflector. Well he are the results (in the shop) It looks to help, but won't hnow till this weekend when I'll take Red back to the orginal location for another picture shoot for compareson.
