okay, as promised in a thread about fender turn signal bulbs a few days ago, here is what i did to fabricate a custom LED bulb setup.
first of all, let me say that what i do here has nothing to do with stock appearance or whatever. my bulbs were shot, my signal housings' chrome was shot, and i did not want to pay 75 or so bucks for a set of bulbs.
second, i have to say that i'm neither a professional mechanic nor a professional electrician, so the results are not very beautiful, but they work.
third: english is not my native language, but i'll try as good as i can
and last but not least: i'm no professional photografer either.
i apologize for the poor quality of the pics.
anyway, here is what you need:
- your old turn signal housing, painted, or chromed
- an old or broken turn signal from another car, to cut out the lens (note that i cut it out in the exact shape of the inside of the housing)
- 2 wires
- a resistor
