Sponsors: custom LED tails - possible?

So I've been seeing all these LED tail light threads. Now there are a few of us facelift sedan owners who like LED tails, but don't think the typical OEM design is too striking. They're nice, but our OEM red/clear/red clears are nice too. I personally wouldn't but OEM-style LEDs since they look too similar to the old coupe style. Kinda blah.

The question: do any sponsors have the resources/know-how to tackle red/clear/red LEDs? Or at least a different style than the current OEM-ish ones? I'm all for better brake light visibility since I'm practical, but I don't want old-style ANYthing.

There are some already made. The turn signal is not LED but you can put our LED bulbs in to create the same effect.

Sure. As long as you get the shipment in before making the promises and making us wait 1 more month. LOL! j/k man!

Seriously though, I'd love to see red/clear/red LED tails. I wonder how painful it would be to retrofit LED lights into the stock red/clear/red housing. I like my current design, but I'd love to get brighter brake/reverse lights. Maybe I should look into a simple bulb upgrade.

To get the OEM surface mount style LED look it would be very hard, but to just put a LED bulb in even if it needs a resistor is nothing, very easy.
