whimsicalpouch2 for my tail lights, i bought these. i know from vleds but its not difficult to find the same bulb elsewhere. worked well, nice and bright.

the reverse lights will work fine, i mean its reverse lights, haha, i plan to get LED reverse lights sooner or later. i'm probably going to get the all around leds just because i like that style, but they are reverse lights haha, hardly ever use them.

i haven't done turn signals in the front yet, i know i would need 2 more load resistors
smaller ones are for the front
the front marker bulbs i'm probably going to do the all around bulb, just because i light that style again, but you could use the style you have for your reverse bulbs. they will work perfectly.

for my reverse lights, thinking I should get some of the 360 style ones. Now I want to do my tail lights as well so I am asking before another order. Also what style did you put in the front amber marker light on the headlight?

Thanks for help so far!

GR8COM Thanks, went to local NAPA to get replacement bulbs for license plate lights and the entire assembly is shot again in my car both lamps. Brand new bulbs and they still don't light. So now to pick up new assemblies for those as well.

Minchkin Resistors are really only needed for the turn signals. But our cars run at 14v vs. the normal 12 in other cars, so keep that in mind when buying LED's. And I am sure that you can get the ones that fit right from the LED thread.

LED question exterior lights

Alright so my Focus searching is weak, I just noticed that both my rear license plate lights are burnt out and the little orange/ambers on side of head light are going dimmer. I want to start replacing with LEDS but I can't find the link to any of the sellers you all have used to get yours. I want to do license plate lights, side marker lights, and turn signals. Are there any LEDs out that don't require the resistors any more so they don't have the crazy fast flash?

Thanks for any help.
