Re: SuperBrightLED's

Looks great! Almost makes you want to try them in the courtesy lights too. I may have to look into those for my 69 vert.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

Source is SuperBrightLED'S.com. They have a vehicle bulb finder option that shows you what you'll need to order. My entire car is LED now with the exception of the headlights. You can turn everything on and the current draw is almost nothing. I think that will be cool for nitetime car shows.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

Entire car meaning running, parking and tail light? If so Eric can you post a few pics of those too.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

Sure no prob. Heres some parking ,tail and back-up shots I guess the camera dosen't really do them justice, they look a lot better in person they are quite a bit brighter than the old incandescents. The back-up lights are really bright.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

I did pretty much the same, though I went with the cool white which doesn't look sa good as yours. The things I would do different are color and getting the more expensive but 360 degree bulbs for the dash to get a little better coverage.

can you post the bulb numbers you used for your dash? I have to dig up the ones I used but I know they were the much cheaper ones.

I went with cool white too, I love it. For the instruments ,you said it, you have to use 360 degree bulbs. I used the hp 5 in green, they were 5.95 each, not too bad because the most you will probably need would be six, if you're doing gauges too. Couldin't believe how good they worked. A while back I read on here to use sylvania 2825 instead of 194. It helped a lot ,but these LEDS just really out performed them.

Looks great!!! Just picked up the #90 courtesy dome light for my 67 with the deluxe interior after looking at this. I'll post pictures when I get them.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

Much brighter...thinking of doing the gauge lights next. I can barely see mine at night. Which bulb fit, since theres plenty of replacements for the 194's?? ( not sure how much different the 67 cluster is.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

Outers are 1157 red 45 led towers,back up are 45 towers cool white 1156,inners are 1156 red 18 led towers. There are lots of choices on their site. I never knew that the inners are supposed to be 1156 until lately. I didin't notice much difference in brightness between the 18 towers and the 45 towers. The 18s are a little bit less expensive.

Re: SuperBrightLED's

The 67 cluster requires two bulbs to light up the main gauges! The others are just your indicator lights and do not require much in the way of brightness to operate. The two main gauges however require a brighter bulb 9 led at minimum and preferably higher 13-15. This is definatley required if you are going with blue leds. (get the 13-15) If white than 9-13.

The main gauges faceplates do not allow as much light through as the 69 gauges for some reason so higher number of leds is better! There is plenty of room for the two main bulbs that light the instrument cluster. Do not be concerned on the length or width even the 24 led will fit.

i run 2x 18 blues in mine for the main cluster and the others are all 3s.
