LED Conversion

Post by billball »



I would like to change all my lights to LED bulbs, I know the headlight is a H4 bulb and the signals and brake are 1156 and 1157 and I need a no load flasher but I can't find the instrument bulbs I think the industry number is #54 but I would like in a red or green if possible or I remember the 194 bulbs came with difference color covers. If anyone has done before just let me know.
Thanks

Bill Ball

What model 1100 do you have? Makes a difference in bulbs in the dash if it is an 83 Aspencade.

I don't remember there being a #54 base bulb.

#57 is a small bayonet base 12v bulb - That's what's in the instrument cluster.
