Replacement LEDs for hotbodies undertail

I just bought an 02 RC and it has the hotbodies undertail installed. I unfortunately didn't pay close attention to the tailights, but the right running LED went out. I've seen some posts on here about replacement LEDs for that undertail, but I've yet to find somewhere to actually purchase. Anybody out there know where to get a replacement or new set for the undertail?

Hotbodies will sell you a set for $40.

Yeah, you'll have to call or email them. Liz is the person I talked to a few months ago.

Just call them and ask what type, model, size are in the lights and get em yourself. You'll save a ton of money and you'll be able to snag better quality (brighter) LEDs

I'm just going to do a little custom fabrication and get some 1157 SMD LEDs for the tailights, and have dedicated turn signals. The hotbodies LEDs are very weak and I would prefer not to be rear-ended.

The HotBodies LED's are pretty much useless, except maybe at night. I made my own too. The blinker is integrated though.

I have the same issue with my HB undertail, man the stock lights are dim! I'm looking into this company tonight to see what lights might fit in. I have seen a youtube vid of them in an undertail and they looked great! Just have to figure what size we need! I know it was one of there 48 led set.
