Cool Reverse / back up lights

We probably all know the 2 movie cars had the OEM chrome plinth mounted back up lights removed and the holes blanked.
So what is a cool movie look correct way to give you a useable back up light?
Has anyone experimented with say fitting an LED bar type light under the rear valance, angled backwards?
Would like to see some ideas / photos / model numbers.

Thanks.

I kept my backup lights because I use my replica and didn't plan on it being a trailer queen. But now that you brought up the aftermarket LED's I may look into deleting them and projection LED's discreetly mounted somewhere out of sight.

Same idea as you. I was just about to blank off the light holes in my new valance panel but I will be driving this car so need some sort of reversing light. My first thought was that here are some great little weather proof bullet shaped LED lights for things like BMW adventure touring bikes, that you could bolt up under the valance, maybe off to the side beside the tank and just angle them backwards as much as the space would allow. They are quite powerful and would handle the muck thrown off the wheels no problem. Use almost no amps as well.

Anyway I'll keep looking...

I'm glad this topic was brought up. I currently have the reverse lights on my car and would like to remove them and fill the holes as well.
