Well I don't have the bulb like this, but I have the Neowedge 3mm LED in white and the wire doesn't reach the posts. Did you have to add more wire to reach the posts?

Oh and also where is the bulb on the headlight ****? I can't find it!

3mm neo is for the headlight switch, it should just untwist and twist the new one in..

The blue's that i got for my 99 look much like this color. however, i have macewen overlays in silver, and the red areas dont really show. if they do its like a purple. i guess its something im gonna have to live with. but it does look killer at dusk when you can see the blue and silver together. brings a smirk to my face.

perfectz28,
were the WLED's you used the 5led version? i was thinking using the 4led in blue..

stealth355tpi,
i see you got the WLED-xHP High Power LED bulb for the cluster. but which ones for the rest of the interior.. are they the same as the already metioned or did you go with different versions.. and for the fog light switch what led is that or did you have to solder one in with a resistor. if so what style. im also going to be doing the radio lights..


im want all blue leds, its just the blue just dont look bright enough for me.. s

by the # it is 4410 w/ rigid loop. but the way it mounts wont work in the rear cargo because the led's wont face downwards they will face eaither towards the back or front. i actually got one ordered of ebay that has te led's mounted the correct way.. just do a search on ebay for 561 and you will see what im talking about. theres type a and type b.. type bis the ones we need in the rear cargo for camaros not sure the rest..

The blues were too blue for my color scheme so I ordered the cool white.

...just to make it clear, I have the 6LE gauge overlays so whatever color LED's I use THAT color shines through...

If im not mistaken but you do need some sort of color with the new 6LE gauges so that they will shine through correctly, i've got a trans am so will all i need is 5 WLED lights (WLED-x5 LED Wide Angle LED bulb) and I will have the stock red look shining through at night?

yes what ever color leds you put will shine thru the 6le overlays.im not sure how many wled you will need i need 7wled's for my 98 camaro. i beleive if you use white led you would be probally show red becuase of the film. dont quote me on that since i have a camaro. but if you change color of leds that may be a difrent story.

I had to order nine bulbs myself, just went ahead and got a red LED for every single bulb on the back, 2 green ones for the turn signals and 1 blue one for the high beam, and the other 6 are red, looking forward to getting them in.

On a side not, i ordered mine from superbrightleds andi must say the customer service is one of the best i've had. There is a spot for comments when you place your order and went ahead and did the standard USPS shipping (last thurs.), i put in the comments that i would like to have them by next wed and if this shipping wouldnt be sufficient then go ahead and upgrade me. Got a phone call while at work from a strange number, didnt answer, he left a message telling me that he read it and said that he couldnt gaurantee it to be there on time but UPS he could. He then called AGAIN a few hours later and this time i answered. They're a bit pricey, but idk about you guys, i'd rather pay a little extra and get the support with the product as well. Good company imo, now i just cant wait to get them and install me new overlays and gauges.
