It is quite simple, no writeup needed,

 

just remove the old standard bulb, and place this in its place:

I did it years ago...

 

► Edit: I forgot to say that the Panel comes with different plugs,

 

shaped as the different bulbs used in dome lights...

 

Kind Regards

$33!

The LEDS cost .0008 cents to make! I mean I understand profit but damn. That's a hell of a profit. Any cheap DIY alternatives?

There are Smaller LED panel alternatives, which are Cheaper.

 

These supposed to have resistor that protect 'em from current fluctuations / overload

 

(in example when the Alternator's regulator goes bad and sends 18V) 

 

Sometimes cheap isn't right for the application.

 

Kind Regards.

To let the Pictures display here, first you must upload them to a web server that host pictures, such like Flikr, Photobucket, Facebook, etc... then do a Right click on the Picture and copy its URL address, then come here and start a Post, you'll find a green square down under the A and the :) Icons on the upper tools, hit that square and paste that URL address in the Dialog Box, and Voilá! ... 

 

The Picture must display here.

 

Kind Regards.

I did the LED dome light on my EA82, and it works great. I got my panel for $3.01 two years ago, with free shipping. Price has gone up, but this is the one I got:

That LED bulb is somehow... Huge for the placement,

 

Does the Cover lens fit with it there?
