    Hi All,
    Just fitted a rear camera to the Accord (the camera with the built in LEDs for licence plate illumination).
    I was wondering what people have used on the opposite number plate light to match the LED illumination colour of the camera ones?

    I have tried a search but can't seem to find anyone who has successfully found one. if I can can't match it not sure if I will keep the camera.

    Cheers All

    Thanks guys.
    Chris: those ebay ones have quite a few LEDs in them. Are they not too bright? The camera only has two LEDs for illumination?

    Thanks for the pic chris, I think they may be too bright. Will do some bench testing on a few LEDs I have bought on ebay and see if I can find a match.
    Will update soon

    Something like these could potentially be quite similar

    Nice one. Ill buy a pair of those. They could be promising.
    I could unsolder a pair of LEDs on those and solder it on the camera that way it should have the same LEDs
    Will see of the footprint of the LED on your link can fit the camera.
