Here is a little video I put together showing some LED options as well as how to solve the signal flashing speed problem.
Yes, but you might consider a "Switchback" LED, I have a couple on order. They are white when the parking lights are on and turn amber when you signal, should look pretty cool. I'll post some pictures when they arrive, about 2 weeks.This is great, so an amber 1157 LED would replace the front corners?
I did buy some LED's from ebay, some were good, however the 1157 tail/brake light ones didn't work very well. The difference in brightness between the brake light on and off wasn't enough to be safe. I ended up taking them apart end replacing the internal resistor so that the difference in intensity was better.Where are you ordering the LED's from. If ebay, do you have a favorite seller?
Also would I need 2 of the NAPA electronic resistors for left and right sides? What if I only want LED in rear, would that NAPA resistor work properly?
Ill have to see if Lordco has those.Yes, but you might consider a "Switchback" LED, I have a couple on order. They are white when the parking lights are on and turn amber when you signal, should look pretty cool. I'll post some pictures when they arrive, about 2 weeks.
Click on the title in the red banner at the top of the Youtube image, that will link you to the movie on Youtube.can you post a link to the first vid? can see embedded vids for some reason. Thanks
Yes, you are correct, the LED and lens need to be the same color, eg. red LED behind a red lens, amber LED behind an amber lens although any color will work behind a clear lens. The reason for this has to due with the spectrum of light produced by LEDs which is very narrow compared to regular bulbs.BigE I am in your debt for this info! Thanks! Did you get White or Red? I read that you are supposed to get the same color as the lens of the housing.
Actually, there are 2 LEDs on the back of each arm of the spider that shine on the reflector. That's 30 LEDs facing forward and 10 rearwards.BigE, In your opinion, what is the best set of LED's that you bought? I like the spider, but I want to utilize the reflector in the housing. Your opinion?
The stock bulbs in the trunk are actually 1157s except that only one half of them is used. The socket is set up for an 1157 bulb, it's just missing one contact.Are the 2 red lights on the trunk a stock 1156 and you put 1157 in? Did you put LED front turn signals as well?
Thanks in advanced.
The electronic flasher will work with any combination lights/LEDs since it's "electronic" and not a thermal flasher.Where are you getting the switchback leds from? So the electric flasher will work with led's in rear lights and regular bulbs in front lights?
