Alright thanks manMyloth wrote:I used resistors of Chinese generic variety copper heatsink(aluminum) look they work for preventing blowouts
but you'll need a flasher upgrade either way. I used a lot of mixed smd bulbs for example I put 68smd whites
as the reverse lightsand now I have foglights for my backup lights lol. But I used 45smd for the rear signals in
red and that works well too.
SMD or Surface Mount Device represents the number of leds used. Each of these bulbs represent a factory
bulb for ie. my 68smd were 1156 in White while my rear turn signals were 45smd Red to replace 1157 clear
(Red lens the red led light goes through it better). Sweet referenced a company on here that gives a discount
it's Superbrightleds.com. BTW I love my Leds check my gauges I did in Blue Leds, the dash is a very cheap
upgrade to do most of those bulbs don't cost much.
