:cool: timthumb_028.jpg Sense I'm already working under the dash sorting out a few wiring issues I figure now would be the time to replace all the T53 and T57 bulbs with the dimmable LEDs bulbs. I was wondering the total T53,T57 required? Would a 10 pack be enough?

LED's are available in colors, so you might want to get green for the turn signal indicators and red for the oil, gen and high beam indicators. White for all the others.

Also, the white ones are available in different Kelvin amounts.
Kelvin determines how white a white light is.
5k looks white, 2.3k to 2.7k looks brownish like the original incandescent bulbs.
Above 6k they start to look blueish and around 9k they look purple.
You have probably seen headlights on modern cars looking blueish, they are running a high Kelvin bulb.

More options, just to confuse you.:unsure:

:cool:I just ordered some 53,57 led bulbs from Super Bright LEDS.com. The bulbs are dimmable.and rated at 15lm ordered a (10) pack of the blue ones,(3)red and (2)green. . I also ordered a blue led for the dome light.I figure it would add a custom lighting effect.
