Interior turn signal light LED
« on: June 03, 2021, 01:59:59 PM »
I’m not necessarily one for LEDs on classic cars, no offense to those that have installed them, just not my thing, but one place I decided to try them was the turn signal dash indicators. On a sunny day I can hardly see the incandescent bulbs so I decided to try these on Amazon for $10. Haven’t had a real sunny day yet but they seem to make a good difference so far. Picture of the difference below and a link.

That is a good idea.  That would be welcome.

I had some LED's in switchgear in another car; took them all out.  Crazy bright and not dimmable.

Many advertise as being as bright as possible, it's not always what is wanted.

I also have difficulty see them on bright days.  Let us know how they work in the sun.  Thanks.
