Yeah I know. I really want to do a led lamp swap but I haven't found a brake like I like.

Searched thru my bulb box for 921s and just had handful of clear oem ones, one set of philips led that wouldn't fit in socket because of shoulder shape and another set of projector type leds that only shone backwards.....for reverse lighting. Did find a pr of philips bulbs with the very light blue glass that was noticeably brighter than the who knows how old clear one with blackish burn spot on one side of it. Still worked but was dim in comparison to the philips one. Just staying with the philips until I go thru the 2 I have on hand.

I flushed radiator and cooling system, changed oil, and replaced serpentine belt for altenator and water pump in over 100 degrees and filled at least two cuss jars.

Just got finished doing the this..................2nd gen leds in 1st gen housing


seems brighter even in daylight................used double sided tape to hold led bar in housing so it would be easy reversible mod if need be for some odd reason. Dunno what that might be.......................................
