In our Oct. '04 issue, we showed you how to install Mustang Project's cool sequential LED taillights in a '65-'66 Mustang. This time we're switching gears by using a '69 instead of the earliest of Mustangs. Just like the first couple of years, the '67-'69s also have three-bar taillights, which makes these cars as receptive to this intriguing and easy-to-install upgrade.
For the most part, installing the LED modules in a '69 is much the same as with a '65-'66, but there are some differences, so the procedure takes a few extra steps and a little more time to complete. The main task is completely removing the taillight housing, which doesn't need to be done with the older cars because once the lens is removed on a '65-'66, the LED taillight-module simply plugs right in.
In any case, installing Mustang Project's kit is still easy on '67-'69s, and we were ready to go with cool Shelby/Thunderbird/Mercury Cougar-style sequential turn signals in about half an hour.
