So I got the lights done in the housings. I have not yet attempt to put these on the car yet but here are some pictures.

First, changed the stock bulb for the LEDs:


Mounted the bulbs into the stock connector base:


9V battery test:


Here is a little video of one of my lights being tested in a dark storage hallway. I used my cell phone for this so don't mind the shotty video and a 9V battery for power source:

Definitely brighter and better throw. You can clearly see better with the projector LEDs than the stock bulbs. I tried to take a picture of the light throw area but my phone wasn't cooperating.

Got them in

Might upgrade to an even better LED later. Also I used my phone and the pic isn't the best. I was also by myself and just hit the unlock button to get the lights to come on. So glad I did this. I hated the ugly old bulb. Especially when you start upgrading the other lights and the OEM duds stuck out like a sore thumb.

Took a pair of pliers and pulled the 194 base off the LED bulb.

Pulled stock bulbs out of the mounting base.

Put the new LED bulbs in the mounting base. All you do is straighten out the positive and negative feeds on the bulbs. Put them in the holes on the mounting base. Use silicone to hold the bulbs in place and prevent corrosion. You'll see the stock mounting bases in my first picture.

The mounting bases just snap into the connectors.
