Just a follow up to my purchase. The 1157 XPD80A light bulbs are a bit longer than a regular 1157 bulb. They DO fit the turn/parking lights on the 67 GTO..they are also MUCH brighter! I spoke to the guys at DIODE DYNAMICS...nice bunch....:thumbsup:
We have a variety of bulb models available depending on how bright you want them to be. They utilize high-end, genuine components and are priced similar to other market options.I may have to wait until I win the lottery those LEDs are pricey!
Nice! I've considered installing some LEDs in my William's Slugfest, but I've kept it original. That's not a bad idea at allI have been doing LED conversions on Pinball games for a few years now and am familiar with cheap LEDs that ghost or flat out don't work and end up in the trash.
It runs around 500 bucks to do a complete WPC games with high quality LEDs the cheapos are a total waste of time and money.
I will just have to wait a bit before ordering, I have another Ames order on the way I haven't told the wife about.
Thanks for the tips!Slugfest is the most desirable of all the [email protected] games and LEDs will take the load off your driver board and GI connectors.
There are jumper mods that should be done on the driver but they are not needed if you convert to LEDs.
You will want to get the batteries off the CPU by converting to an off board battery holder, when they leak they will ruin the board and it is made of unobtainium.
They should be replaced once a year so check it for corrosion.
Battery holders are cheap, I put them in a plastic bag and don't worry about the batteries if they leak I just cut the wires, toss the whole holder and solder in another one.
The bulbs themselves are a direct replacement to your factory incandescent bulbs, but you will need to add resistance to the circuit to prevent hyperflash.I've been considering upgrading my rear lights (brake, turn signals, reverse) on my '70 GTO. Maybe even front parking lights and turn signals...... 1157/1156(I think 1156). I get conflicting opinions. All are plug and play but for turn signals I need a special flasher? Some say yes some say no
What's the correct answer on this?
They are substantially brighter than the factory incandescent bulbsJust ordered a set of Diode Dynamics LEDS for my front parking turn signal lights...got the 1157 replacement called xd80. Amber...
Redoing those old housings and wiring...saw Eric had mentioned these...
Bright lights matter...nobody can see you with dim bulbs....
Sure they will work great!:thumbsup:
Ok.... You don't carry the flashers?The bulbs themselves are a direct replacement to your factory incandescent bulbs, but you will need to add resistance to the circuit to prevent hyperflash.
There may also be LED-compatible flashers for your GTO as well if you aren't comfortable splicing in resistors onto the factory wiring.
