I purchased the more expensive lenses with the blue dots directly in front of the bulb for my '55 and there is not even a hint of blue hue on the tail light. What a waste of money:mad:

Anyone else had this happen? Maybe because the housing is painted silver causing too much reflection... ANY ideas?

I've seen 2 types of blu's.. Plastic, and the real glass pieces. Glass worked.

That is also the same thing i`ve heard in the past. Had blue dots way back and went with the LED`s this time myself.

Usually it's the blue dot placement that makes them either look blue or not.

If not directly infront of the bulb they don't even show a hint of being blue.

And some of the plastic blue dots never look like they suppose to.

I've had a couple that unless you pressed on the brake pedal they still looked like regular taillights.

Jeffs55 told me he bought a set of LED replacement bulbs he used in the taillights of his '55 Wagon. Maybe a set of these may make the blue dots in your lenses look brighter?

Most blues dots I've seen don't look blue until you hit the brakes... Later, Dave
