    Ebay, I replaced every bulb in my car with LED's I bought on ebay. I got enough to do two cars and have some extras for about thirty bucks; but , that was a few years ago. There's also a company in Washington called "Super bright LEDs" but they are much more expensive. I haven't heard anything bad about their product or service, but have not purchased from them myself.

      Keith, are trying to get Transparent Red ones like the Original?
      It will be interesting to see if the LED's you find will be non-directional enough to light wider & better than the originals.

            Hawk -

            The ones that Brad gave the page number of !

            I've also been thinking of going this rout, since my cars dash is apart while I do the new wiring.

            Thanks for the info Brad.

              Brad the light boxes on my Avanti must be full of dust after 50 plus years. Can I just pop two of these bulbs into the boxes to compensate for the dim light caused by the dirt inside of the two boxes?

                Those look like just the thing to fix the dim turn signal telltale in my Lark, and the high-beam indicator. But I presume they are non-dimmable?

                  My thoughts exactly-the Lark’s turn signal green lens is impossible to see except at night!

                So Mike, I would just order 9 of these to place in the instruments, clock and vac gauge?

                  There are problems that I have found from folks on line, polarity issues, and ill fit into the bulb base, etc.
