Re: 69 Instrument Bulb Sockets/ LED
Ok this project is just about wrapped up. Didn't quite work out as I planned. After everything was said and done I had a short in the dash lights (gray wires) circuit. I tried to find it but don't know if it was my wiring or a defective bulb holder. So I had to remove all the dash lights and rewire with my old bulb holders. Was able to keep the Cole Hersee bulb holders for my turn signals and high beams as those are different circuits. Was able to get LED bulbs in all the dash lights.
I will say removing that instrument bezel/carrier sucks and I had it in and out about 1/2 dozen times this go around because of the short problem. Hope I never have to remove it again.
Will say the LED bulbs are about perfect. Definitely not too bright. They appear to have more of a glare in the photograph. Its a worthwhile upgrade.
