Default More LED Pictures

Parking lights WLED 6-LED white $3.64 each from www.superbrightleds.com from the looks of it you could fit the bigger 9 Led and possibly the large 15 LED wedge bulbs in there if the base fits the stock socket.

Just the parking lights:


With the projector lights on they disappear.


And an after dark picture:


I didn't take pictures with all the lights off as the stock and LED replacement lights are both white and rather invisible. Note the stock turn signals are still in place adding lots of yellow. Also the yellow sliver light wasn't changed out as it's behind the darn yellow strip anyway.

The parking lights are a bit dimmer but much more of a clean white color.

It looks great, thanks for sharing the pics, It gives good reference from stock to led.

One question though, how do you hold your Ipaq (plam) there?

Actually that's a Garmin iQue navigation/Palm PDA. It's got the same navigation abilities of the fullsized Garmins and is also a portable PDA to boot.

I designed a custom built holder.

I started with some alumimun plate I had. I cut it to size and bent it into a "U" shape which clamps onto the cubby hole door. The back side is cut and bent a bit to fit the shape behind the door. The inside of the "U" is surounded with 1/16" thick rubber to protect the cubby door. The bottom of the "U" has it's outside covered with the fuzzy part of a velcro strip to protect the bottom of the cubby.

I took the bean bag of the iQue holder apart and ran the screws from the base through the "U" and bingo I'm done. The thing pops out in a few seconds to move it to the other car if need be.

is there a way to change our turn signal bulbs and rear brake lights to led bulbs? Would it be just as easy as a bulb swap?

the general rule, for a colored lense, is use the same color of bulb. besides, with the current LED technology, red LEDs are usually brighter and cheaper than white LEDs. hope this helps.
