I got some carboard egg cartons from my fridge, crumpled some aluminum foil, then rubber cemented it in to the egg carton, and placed this behind the light bulbs.I went on a short ride with another Wee the other night. I didn't realize until then how pitifully dim the turn signals are.
So, what have you done to brighten them up? New bulbs? Reflective tape on the back of the housing?
How difficult is an LED conversion?
Yes, it's the foil tape shown in your second link. You should be able to find some at any hardware store. It's plenty shiny to reflect more light. There are absolutely no reflectors of any kind in the stock signal housings....Are you talking about the aluminum ducting tape?
I don't have a Home Depot or any other large home type store near me, I'll have to order some.

Any auto parts store will have it as well.Yes, it's the foil tape shown in your second link. You should be able to find some at any hardware store. It's plenty shiny to reflect more light. There are absolutely no reflectors of any kind in the stock signal housings....
You can do it, and it will be brighter. However, you have to be mindful of the load ratings in order to make the flasher work properly. Or you have to replace the flashing unit with one specifically made for LED lights. Or you can place a resistor to increase the load, which all makes for a lot of work.Has anyone tried replacing the bulbs with the led 1156's? I have no experience with led's but I would think they would be brighter and less of a load on the system.
