    Default LED sidelights fitted (Pics)

    Just finished fitting my LED sidelights and have the normal strobing now and again and when I turn the off so going to piggy back the originals.

    The LED's I went for are these (As you can see there are plentyof LED's to light up the reflector):


    And this is how bright hey are lol:

    Piggyback some normal bulbs on the wire wires over the weekend.

    Thinking about getting an under bonnet light that I could wire the orignal bulb wires into so I can check my levels at night if I need to.

    If your looking for LED's make sure they point sideways onto the reflector as the others are rubbish.

    These were only £6 each: http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/501194t10...al-p-2191.html

    I prefer the normal 501's but with inverted tips, i like the dull white/blue glow to be honest... Already got mine hard wired in...

    Like the under bonnet light idea myself, i've taken the under bonnet heat shield off mine and you get 4 holes in the 2 centre bonnet supports. I'm fitting 4 flush fit side repeaters in there and having an alarm sensor switch to earth it all... Will only come on then with the bonnet open...

    Under bonnet needs spraying 1st so i've just been collecting bits

    The first link looks like the ones I have and the second one looks like they should be ok as they will still draw 5watts like bulbs.
