Recently Earl (engineer) and I have gone through the ADRs in fine detail re rear lights. Attached picture is the outcome, yes its what we already had..... Small indicators within 300mm of the rear of the vehicle is non negotiable (must be ADR okay ie. 'E' certified or from an ADRed vehicle ie factory bike or car indicators) and a single brake/stop light mounted on the centreline towards the rear of the vehicle is also non negotiable. The reverse light remains a pest as attractive small ADR approved reverse lights simply do not exist hence the 'boat trailer special' currently fitted to the car in the attached pic.

This all sucks in a way as it means you can not use all the functionality of the multi lights we suggest and supply and we need to find a solution to the reverse light issue.

The 140mm multi light that LED Autolamps offer that has a reverse lamp in it doesn't have a reflector, the other 125mm one that has reverse doesn't have a tail light (but has a reflector).

For the moment the set up as per picture attached is the suggested set up. The brake lights in the multi lights can not be connected but the indicators can be (as well as the small ones on the rear guard).

Of course I and Earl and the Dept of Transport etc have no control over what you do after engineering........

The latest on this at least in Queensland is that you CAN have both the brake lights and indicator lights in the outer multilights operating at the same time as the centrally mounted stop light and small bike indicators. This at least saves any rewiring post approval. I would say this is pretty much the final position on this issue as Earl has fully worked it through with the dept.

PS. Not the correct place to put this but the centrally mounted rear view mirror is no longer required in Qld and possibly other states.
