I am in the process of installing an AAW wiring kit in my Nomad. I would try like to see the dash lights a little better :confused: :rolleyes: ......you KNOW what happens when you become ADVANCED in years :rolleyes: :eek:

Well I had a number for a 3 cp bulb that would fit the standard socket........but I misplaced it :eek: :eek: :eek:

If anyone might know what that number is or may have a better idea...please let me know. :)

T.I.A.,

Dash Light Bulbs

Hey Mike & Tri-5 ers

I found the bulbs for my dash :D
If anyone would want to increase the brightness of their dash lights, use #1816 bulbs in place of the #57's. The #1816 is a 3 CP and fits the stock socket just fine;) ;) .......should increase brightness by 50* :cool: :cool:

I got a similar question, is there a way to color the light kinda like newer cars? like maybe a nice green or pinkish color?
I was in PEP Boys the other day.

In the section where they sell all of the import performance items, I happened to see a number of colored bulb "covers".

Didn't pay close attention to them, but if you have a PEP Boys in your area, might be worth a look.

Hi Rick, I just did a quick search on EBay for the 1816 bulbs. None for auction, but in the ebay store category, a lot of 10 bulbs will cost you 2.99 with minimal shipping.
