Winter Jobs: Rear number plate light

With the winter weather drawing in and the car not used as much as I’d like – what better time to get around to those odd jobs.

The rear number plate light.
It just looks pathetic doesn’t it?

So, there’s two things going on here.
 
Firstly, the bulbs are not very bright, and secondly the light just gets lost in the cavity

It’s a fairly easy mod:
 
Replace the bulbs with LED’s.
Cover the cavity with reflective sticky tape.

    I have a 4.2 Cerbera `1997 had it since new – only 22K on the clock but live in Germany now (its a RHD drive but had the work done to achieve the MOT here in Germany 1 years ago) BUT the next MOT failed because of the rear number plates. I need to get the see through material to then put a German reg on to allow the light to shine through at night. Anyway got any ideas? desperate to get car back on the road
    Thanks in advance
