Which one of these would be better for the LED dash conversion?

The inverted LEDs disperse wider and weaker, while the bullets are more concentrated and thus brighter.

I dont know how the back of the dash is setup, but I would think the inverted LEDs would be better.

Any one know?

Well after a little more research it seems that these T10s are too large.

Same question still applies though, bullet or wide?

You would be better off going for the flat top leds. Gives a better spread of light and therefore will reduce any bright spots on your dials.
Try these links.

they don't slide straight in. it takes a bit of fiddling to get them into the existing or new holders. you are better off heading to motorquipe or repco etc, and getting pre-made T5 leds in holders, they are brighter, more rugged and saves hours of work
