I sent Jr a few of the best HP has to offer awhile back. Dunno if he used 'em or not, but I think he was going to use them on his OLD bonneville. The one with DUST all over it. The SLOW one.

If you have the light monitor, you'll have to create a whole new circuit for the led'* (when replacing existing lamps). Otherwise that stupid display will go nuts on you.

The aftermarket led 1157'* for the brakes might work if tricked with a resistor. Haven't tried it yet.
