These came on the car I just picked up, they have a few dead spots. Can they be repaired? Brand is Firestik but I don’t see that they even carry them anymore on their website.

Safe glow can make them in any length, I have 2 sets

20 inch
&
36 inch

the short ones are great they don’t get snagged in trees, but not to code if you ride in state parks....

They are cheap strip lights wrapped around a fiberglass rod then covered in a clear tube. They are only as good as the product used, I’ve had no real issues with my Safe Glow, sometimes you gotta give it a smack, but only two that seem reputable are the Safe Glow and 5150 Whips

5150 will fix their own brand.
They'll be at Dumont Wed to Wed.

I have a 4' 5150 multi color with remote id sell cheap. Its about a year old, minimal use.
I switched to 3' gorrilla. 2 of them
I already had a warranty issue with one of the gorrilas after about 2 hours of use.
Without details, the 5150 is 100% better on warranty and customer service

Anyone needs the 5150 let me know. Its at the lake and we are there all the time
