    LED Lights??

    Hi folks I'm thinking about changing my rear all in one lights {stop, tail and red indicator) to LED do I have to modify anything or can I just use original wiring??

    Also my indicators flash pretty slow is there a way I can get them to flash quicker??

    Regards Stuart

    For top quality LED bulbs go to www.classiccarleds.co.uk
    You can get an LED flasher unit which is adjustable https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PureTek-M...4AAOSwaqtbTcFy - it works fine for std bulbs too, just turn adjuster to get the speed flash you like.

    Nope just plug & play, but you might need the above flasher relay - probably not as the CBS ones will most likely have a resistor in to simulate a normal bulb.

    If you are just changing bulbs to LED be aware that they can be directional as opposed to a conventional bulb which emits light in all directions.

    If you get the new generation from www.classiccarleds.co.uk they have multi directional SMD chips on them so no difference compared to incandescant bulbs.
