How to- swap out your map lights (for LED's) *pics*
I purchased a blue pair of dome lights from Advanced Auto for $3 and I could barely see anything! I decided to search for bright LED lights and came across a website called iJDMtoy.com and purchased a set of ultra blue LED bulbs for my dome light. The LED bulbs are a lot brighter and look great! I paid $12.99 + shipping for the set. They also sell red and white!
This thread was very helpful. I ended up doing this only with white LEDs. Looks great. I didn't use a screwdriver to get the housing off though. I just pulled. I was afraid the screwdriver might leave a mark.
Sure, you can find them cheaper on eBay, that's no secret. But the common eBay bulb has a much higher failure rate and doesn't come with our fantastic customer service. Plus, if you ever need help you can always PM me!
Lighting Your Source For Mustang Lighting
Just did this tonight. I was going to post some pictures but mine are blue and people already have posted those. First off I got mine from the diode dynamics link posted above. They seemed to have the easiest to figure out website of the ones linked so far. They shipped fast and had good packaging. You could probably find them cheaper somewhere else but they were convenient and ill probably order from them again(trunk and license plate are next). I had some tips I wanted to share for people that struggle with this as it too a while to figure it out. First the lenses do pop off very easily with a thin flathead. You have almost no issues with breaking them. Problem is as far as I can see its impossible to get the bulbs out without pulling the whole housing down. The clips are a pita to get undone. The sockets for the lights are in pretty tight so I had to use pliers. Grab them by the smaller sides and twist to one side and the clips holding them in should pop out. Make sure you test the lights out before you put it all back together as you could have them in backwards.
