ah alright. Now that makes a bit more sense. I thought that those were the stock sockets.
Chances are I'm going to end up doing something like Black&Tan said.
only instead of using spade terminals, can't you buy single wire mini-sockets?
So that just in case you could snap them apart.
I think may even look a bit more clean.

I ordered the LEDs too. Hopefully they'll be here within the week.
Thanks again for this How-to scrammer. They should add this to the archive.

Actually I was using the wrong term. It wasn't spade terminals I used, it was blade terminals (DOH!)

There's a male blade and a female socket that it slides into. The ones I used are jacketed so they're weatherproof.

oh yeah, I guess I filled in with what I thought it said not what I read.
I just wonder if there is a socket for this type of thing.

I plan on deleting my grill markers, so I'll use these as much as possible for the lights i want constant and blinking and such...just haven't figured out the specifics yet.....

sounds like a decent idea right?

Sounds good!

I deleted my grill markers and put in an ST170 grill. Much cleaner look.

I think I've got the socket figured out pretty well. Might hack up those grill sockets a bit, but I think it may work.
I just want good mobility. Who knows. Hope these LEDs come in soon. lol

I'm redoing mine soon. I'm not happy with the brightness of the bulbs I used, and one of the solders came loose when I reinstalled my headlights after I had to seal them due to moisture issues.

I haven't decided what colors to use. Purple maybe? I don't want blue or red... don't want issues with the fuzz.

yeah, I know. I want to do the mixed colors like you did.
But I'm having a hard time deciding what colors to do.
I kinda wanna change the "eyebrow" leds.
but like you said I don't want fuzz issues.

Mabey yellowish colors for the eyebrows?


EDIT: you can get amber colored LEDs on e-bay.
On the color note...I think I'll be leaving them what they are for now.
But since I got 100 superwhite 17kmcd bulbs, I'll be swapping all the leds....hahaha.
" look it the freakin Griswalds!"
