Fuel...I can't believe you posted such a question...GO GOOGLE IT!!! j/k

Seriously I had a rattle can of white and misted them lightly. they look and work very well. Trick is not to coat them too thick.

Bill, You slay me.

I don't remember typing in Paint Bulbs? for the subject. Must be the moderators that did it. I just hate the amber look but I don't like the clear corners look, i'm more of a body color person. I'll try painting it but if it sucks, I'll get the hot white 194 that someone recommended.

Thanks

Poor titling may have been changed. Doubtful though. You should always try and title the thread with the thought in mind "What would people search on later?)

Oh alright, I wasn't sure. Thanks. I'll try the painting technique and then save money for a digital camera so I can post my pics

has anybody here tried a LED replacement for their 194'*? I have heard that sometimes there is a problem with getting them to blink as a turn signal because of the resistance or something like that?

Hey today, I tried to remove the ambers so I could paint them, well I couldn't figure how to get them out. So I consulted the owner manual and it said "remove two bolts" That'* it, the pics were extrememly vague. I searched techinfo to see if there was an article on that. Anyone have any advice on how to get them out?
