Angry Need replace wing's Brake LEDs

Stupid-me hooked up the LED cluster of an aftermarket wing with reversed polarity and .... all is dark... I think they are shot with nothing conducted on a voltmeter. I don't see evidence of a circuit protector, but I haven't cracked open the unit's housing. Anyone know a source of LED strips for this sort of thing? It's a strip of about 20 or so LEDs. THanks.

Are you sure you fried them? I thought LED's didn't pass current the other way (very high impedance... diodes only allow current flow one way) - so unless you hit them with a real high bias, which you really can't do with a 12V car battery, the LED's should be fine - maybe the wiring is messed up somewhere?

depending how the leds were set up, it could blow them, but most likly it did not. try switching the leads. If they are still blown please PM me and i might be able to work something out (and make it bright as hell too )
