  • Electrical: what bulb number is this? thanks

    What is the number of the bulb that illuminates the front fender spears on a GT Hawk? Any one have any experience in using the LED substitute bulbs in their car. I am contemplating and could use some input. thanks jimmijim

    Jim, I believe it is a 1445.....A led can be put in if you put a 100K ohm resister in series with the power lead.

        100k OHM might be a tad too high...

          I took the spears and filed the back of the spear, and put in amber leds. The "white" leds are blue, and look out of place, IMHO. I did not put any resistors in, they were 12 volt leds. They are led strip lights available at a lot of parts houses. I know Pep Boys, O'Reilly and Autozone have them. They sell them in strips of 6 lights, and have a spot that you can cut them in half. That is the most lights you can put behind the spear. You already have wiring, but I just ran wiring thru the back of the stainless strips on the tops of the fenders.
