I changed the 194 bulbs in my position lights to 13 SMD LED. I have been looking for a while found the following and they were only $6.

They are not brighter than the incandescent but are a purer white.

*

Incandescent is 1" long and LED is 1 5/8 " long, fits well

*




*

I foiled the top and bottom of the position light lens. Just to reflect more light.

After foiling.

Good catch Hodgy. $5.89 for 2 bulbs...and free shipping. I have mine ordered now.

Hi Hodgy, have ordered some of the ones you referred to above myself, along with some LED's with a BA9s socket, suitable for my 1200 "position" lights, the trader certainly has a lot of choice re. LED stuff, thanks again..!!

Hodgy,



I was looking for a different bulb (and you find it)but I have one question. You said that you foiled the lens.



Was it the outside of the lens or did you take it apart and do it on the inside ?

Outside the lens, I did not think it was worth the bother to take them apart.

It did block some of the light escaping out the top and bottom. If I did it again I would use the silver (aluminum) duct tape.
