Hi all,
I got some clear corners and decided to try some LEDs with them. The LEDs are clear when not lit, and light up amber.

What do you think?

One thing about the LEDs is they look awesome at night. But they are not as bright as your normal bulbs in the daytime.

Thanks,

Now for some of the bad news.

You need to get load resistors when you install LEDs. I guess they don't draw as much power from the car, and the car thinks that the lights might be burned out.

So, when I use my turn signal, they hyper blink (blink really fast). Its kind of cool from the outside, but it drives me bonkers listening to the clicking of the blinker inside the car.

Also, if you don't get the load resistors you will get two red headlights in your instrument panel. Again, the car thinks the lights are burned out and gives you that display.

I haven't gotten the load resistors yet. I am still debating on whether or not I want to keep them. I am not sure if they are bright enough during the day.

here is what they look like off.
