    Default 2008 GS - Tail Lite Connectors

    Hi folks,

    I have been removing & re-installing the tupperware at the rear where the tail lites are mounted quite a bit lately.

    While doing this a few times, I concluded that getting the two each waterproof back together was just a b****.

    So I decided to improve things.

    I bought these: https://www.amazon.com/Huicocy-Water.../dp/B01DILSJ0A

    Here are the before & after photos of the new connectors.

    I also used these same connectors when I installed the Driving Lites to the sides of my frunk. They allow me to disconnect the Driving Lites whenever I remove the frunk.

    Just thought some of you might be interested is this change,

    Hi Dave,

    Re: I know I'll be getting these!

    If I were doing it again I would add a little more ( ~ 4" ) of wire so that there is a little more slack when finished. Mine work fine as is but I always like a little extra wire whenever I can add it.

    I'll be using them on my bag lights so they can be disconnected easily for removal.
    There's a good bit of slack so should be no problem
    Had been thinking about doing a search for something like this. And now I don't have to.
    Already ordered.
