Yeah that's in my future.

Default Green LED interior, process has begun

So i ordered one 578 festoon bulb from superbrightleds.com and then 4 more after i installed this one, to any of you who want to change your interior lights, i highly reccomend it, since the bulb is 4$ for the colored and white (and 2 something for red/yellow/ and another one i can't remember) anyways it's a pita for me because those metal tabs broke off when i tried to put the new bulb in, so i soldered it and soldered it for a little bit until i got it fixed, well the bulb just kept on falling out (probably because i messed up the original terminals) anyways it's all good now, and im satisfied with the result here is few pics:

Aftermarket bulb and your regular OEM bulb (a little different but it's the closest you can get.

Me trying to fix that terminal and get the bulb to stay

Result (sorry for low quality, it's much brighter than in the picture)

Anyways i will install the other 4 sometime in the end of next week, green is not the best color if you actually wanna see better, but it's better than the old bulb, and it looks so awesome, the truck is green, interior will be green too

Thanks [MENTION=45175]BrowningSCrew[/MENTION] for this thread

You think it's possible to run them as driving lights? Cause wouldn't it have to be dim then brighten when you hit the blinker? Are these capable of that?
You could set them up as running lights, and then wire it so the blinked off with the turn signal. Has something to do with the ground, I have seen it on other vehicles for side marker lights.
Let me see if I can find it.

That's it. Just letting you know I have a question. Thought you'd like to know.

No, my question is, I have a set of projector fogs I'd like to add to my truck, but I don't know if I should put a fusible link in the hot wire or not. I was thinking of powering them off the factory fog wiring so they all come on together. Is this feasible, dear resident lighting guru?

Maxtel? I've never heard of them, but they were free, so I took them. They each have a white lead and a ground coming off of them, but that's it. They use H3 bulbs.

I would probably run a relay using the fog light as a trigger
