What type of vehicle are you working on? Maybe I'm not reading this correctly but are you trying to replace existing LED'* with blue ones, replace incandescents with LED'* or a combination of both. LED'* are not a direct replacement for incandescent bulbs. The commercially available LED bulb replacements (Ie for 194'* and 1157'*, etc) have additional components in the base of the assy. Discrete LED'* have a range of operating voltages. Red for example often operate at 1.9 - 2.2 VDC and cannot be "dropped" in as a direct replacment. Blue LED'* generally operate at a slightlly higher voltage. In order to do this you also have to consider adding a current limiting resistor. If you are looking at LED'* do you require surface mount on through hole? If surface mount, you'll also required some more specialized tools to avoid damaging the parts. If you want correct lighting, you'll need to spec in a part rated with the appropriate millicandela rating. There are literally hundreds of discrete LED possibilities depending on what you're trying to achieve.
I just want to somehow replace those small white bulbs with some thing blue. Like blue led lights or bulbs.... I tryied painting them but it melted... i also tried the blue caps they also melted so i really need to find some replacement... to match my other blue led i am going to add...
My plan is to replace all my stock lights with led lights that are blue then i am going to buy some blue led tubes
I read earlier in this thread that one this site http://autolumination.com/74.htm
there might be some leds that would fit what ones are they? theres more than one on the page and when replacing them.. do i take the bulb out of the stock plastic covering or does the other bulbs at autilumination have plastic covering that will fit in the side door ?.. what iam trying to say is can you remove the white bulb out of the casing.. so you can put a replacement in ??
Car i am working on because someone in the thread asked before a
97 Pontaic Bonneville SSE anymore question you need about my car just ask.
Please get back to me ..........
