I have puchased some LED products, and bartered with a buddy for 194 style led assemblies. I will be installing them and taking pictures compared to normal incandescent and colored incandescent bulbs.
What i have: LED 194's in both bright white(bluish) and warm white (yellowish)
generic autozone dual density Red 1157 LED lamps
red and yellow 194 generic auto store led's
1156 amber incadescent
1 meter each of strip led, both white and red, from radio shack.
I will be trting the following combinations, and taking pics once the sun goes down:
Front marker lamps, 194 socket, the amber element (as i cannot find a 67 bulb for the marker itself): Blue LED, warm LED, amber 194, white 194(oem), red 194.
For the rear turn signal(amber, 1156) :1156 white incandescent, 1156 amber incandescent, 1157 red LED(i would have to go purchase an amber 1157 led, 1156's unavailable
rear marker lamp, 194 socket: white, red, amber incandescent, red and amber LED, blue and warm led
tail lamps: 1157 incandescent, 1157 dual density led RED
front turn signals: amber 1156 incandescent, white 1156 incandescent (may purhase amber led 1157)
strip led's, cut down by pairs wired in parallel, to make ighting arrays to fill out the lamp housing lens in the dark areas and corners. These will supplement the bulbs in their oem sockets. I will see if the leds look better projecting thru the lens, or hidden that they give ambient light to the interior of the lamp housing. I will try red and white as that is what i have. I would like to find amber or the turn lenses.
I want to trace out the top and inside of the headlamps with the white led's much like late model cars.
I may consider a amber halo ring inside the headlight around the halogen bulb.
I may consider an led projector bulb in the headlamp as a daytime running light
I may consider strobe controller for turn and brake lamps.
I mat consider actual strobes for tail and turn lamps.
I wish not to alter the stock appearance of the lamp housings for 1986 model year
