'68 el Camino Backup Lights - Candle power
I am going to change out the red reflector housings in the bumper in my '72 with functional ones from a '68 el Camino so I can get the red lights to be on as running lights, not brake lights. Was wondering if anyone knows a compatible bulb to the 1156 but dimmer (standard backup bulbs in the backup lights have 32 candle power) so they look like running lights rather than being bright like brake lights, so looking for a bulb that is like an 1156 but dimmer (less than 32 candle power)?
