I believe I mentioned this to someone else... But the problem with those bulbs is that they use multiple LEDs. Multiple light sources = blurred projection because they go throuh the stencil at different angles.

I just need ONE good LED or bulb.

Very cool mod OP. Very innovative! I would love to try this, but I'm having problems cutting up my car right now lol. Perhaps in a year or two =D

But good job and good results!

Thanks, all the cutting is hidden so even if you DO mess something up you can't see it

nice eye! its a great knife. I really miss my benchmade Pardue tho


***UPDATE TO THE MOD***

i wanted a brighter LED so i searched all over the place and found a great deal from a company in China

120 lumens per LED! (a maglight with 3D cell batteries oputs out 77 lumens...)

they are 3watt LEDs pre-wired with a heatsink for 12V. i just disassembled the bulb casing and took the LED and heatsink out.

So this can be used to replace the led? Do they have these in other colors?

Also this mod can be applied to any 2010/2011 camaro right?

3 watt seems to work the best with no chance for overheating
