ok so i know theres a few threads on LED parkers but i couldn't find any that stated what type to use.

i'm contemplating putting white or blue LED's in my headlights as parkers. what type of LED's and resistors etc will i need for this to work?

cheers

You want T10 wedge bulbs/LEDs... (I think it's T10 :?)

Try checking out one of these two ebay stores...

if you just want to pull the parkers out and replace with LED's, get two T-10 wedge LED park lights, Autobarn and that sell them
Or if you want to cut the park light globe holder off you can use any normal LEDs (JayCar, d**k whatever) and the appropriate resistor. Just depends on how bright you want them as to which mcd ones you use and how many you use!

You'll get done for green too. If you're gonna go a color other than yellow or white, dont have 'em on when your driving unless you have your headlights on too, otherwise the cops'll be all over your a**.

I've got some white LEDS in my parkers atm, but not bright enough.

Would these white 8 LED parkers work?
