Cheers

just replace the parkers with LEDs. Be warned the only legal colour you can have is white. All other colours will get you in trouble with Mr. Plod.

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

I bought off Hyena some EF headlights that hae had pulled apart and painted BA style with the black framing, aswell as fitted duel 8mm LEDs for the park light. I then got more white LED's and drilled into the high beam and fitted them in there, so when on park light mod the entire headlight housing - both hgih and low, would be illuminated by LED's, I also ran Narva Artic Blue H1 headlight globes in the low beam and so when just on normal loww beam they would illuminated thhe low beam housing and the LED's in the hhigh beam would still illuminate the high beam housing.
Anyways I sold the lights to ef biff when I converted to EL XR style. Here's a picture of hhis ride with them fitted:

There's a thread on how I did the same to my EL XR twinlights...

If your wanting to just replace your T-10mm wedge park liht globes with LED's, easiest way is to go to JayCar, Autobarn, etc. and get some T-10mm LED wedge globes and just straight easy peasy swap over! No soldering, no adding resistors, nothing, just pull out old and push in new.

fiftyone,

This is part of what I was referring to.
During that thread we touched, Angel Eyes, LED parkers etc. etc.

If you are interested in making your own Angel Eyes let me know.

You on about the ricer look, where guy drill a small hole in the lower half of the headlight and place blue scatter neons in to give a blue glow to the whole headlight unit when switched on solo from the headlight itself
