I was looking for a sequential tail light kit as part of my improvement projects on my 2006 coupe. I have been working through my “Weekend Projects for Your Mustang 2005-Today, by Dan Sanchez, and Drew Phillips”. In their book, they outline one of the simple projects - an install of a sequential tail light kit. When Black Friday hit, I decided to give this Drake programmable kit a go. I had three reasons – the price point was appealing, no splicing was involved, and the idea of a programmable sequence that can be changed by me to blink the way I wanted was intriguing. If you have those programmable twinkle Christmas lights on your tree, this kit is for you. A couple of items related to the install; in the instructions, when you remove and install the bulbs, you really need to push hard to get them to click into the bulb sockets. I didn’t the first time and had only a couple of my bulbs light-up. Out the bezels came again; I pushed in the bulbs harder to snap them correctly in the bases to make contac
I have loved the sequential turn signals since the first Cougers. I recently bought a kit for my wifes 2007 convertible. It was so easy to install and the results were better than I had hoped. An extra bonus to us was the fact that they sequence out then stay on for the brakes and they sequence out together for hazard lights thus adding an even greater safety measure by being more visible. They make for a real eye catcher. Thank you Scott Drake Products and CJ Pony for carrying them and the fast shipping.
Was originally going to have CJ Pony Parts install for me ,but had to replace a taillight bulb in the meantime and saw how easy it was. You just need to take your time. For the cost of $6 for a pair of new bulbs just bought all new, so I shouldn't have to change any for awhile. Read all the other reviews here as they are helpful along with the simple instructions from the manufacturer. The look is worth the price!
Product was everything as observed by others. Tail light bulbs did need some encouragement for installation. I have the Shaker 1000 sound system on this 2008. The speakers and amplifiers had to be removed to remove the taillight lens. I replaced some permatex form-a-gasket seal on each stud on the tail light lens. The original seal looked tired. The installation took two hours, take your time and it is an easy project.
This kit is truly plug-and-play. I love the fact you can program it too. The best part about this product though is that when I hit the brakes now, all of my brake lights light up rather than just the middle and outer lights which to me, looks odd. One thing to remember, is definitely use rubber/latex gloves when handling the bulbs. I forgot and had a few go out on me in a couple days.
install was pretty straight forward but getting the bulbs into the sockets was a bit of a pain. had to pry the tabs open with a flat screwdriver. other than that it looks amazing.
I am a 63 year old grandmother with mild arthritis in my hands. The only car maintenence I know is how to check my oil and tire pressure. Since 1966 I have loved the sequential directional signals. I purchased my 2009 Mustang new, then 2010 Mustangs had sequential directionals. Recently it occured to me to look for a kit for my Mustang. I was so excited to get my kit, I installed it right away. Your directions were excellent, and I only need help on two things, because I did not have the hand strength to complete the step.
This is a great product and I am glad I purchased the programable one instead of the regular sequential one. Very easy to install and I had both sides done in 1/2 hour. The only thing that was incorrect on the instructions was I did not need a T30 socket but I did need a 13MM for the bolt. Looks and works great and is a sure head turner. I highly reccomend this product.
