  • Interior: 6 volt LEDs for dash lights

    I just finished converting all my dash lights in my 54 Commander coupe to LEDs. These are 6 volt pos or neg ground and they work great replacing all the # 51 and 55 lamps including turn indicators. These are #1847 LEDs available from LEDlight.com. I can post pictures of what it looks like if there is an interest. The only snag in the installation process is you need to cut off the the little reflector tabs on the backplane of the dash as the LED is a tad longer and the socket wont fit back in with tab/ reflector in place.

    I would love to see a picture if it's not too much trouble. I am considering the change in my 53 Commander Coupe [6 volt positive ground] . Thanks in advance.

              How did you get them to work on positive ground? Can you buy them that way?

                These LEDs are 6volt and work pos or neg ground. My system is 6 volt neg ground for everything except the starter which is 12 volts
