    Hey Rob, You wouldent happen to have the specs for the bulbs? I am going to do this but want to make sure I use the right bulbs with the 1/2w resistors...

    Hey, this looks familiar...great job! If I remmeber correctly, you didn't have the exact part
    # for these, right? I'm still dying to have a lumen comparison as I'm not sure what's bright enough...

    Baja light's

    Ok you only need one 1/2 watt resistor for each side but also remember the higher the resistor the less brightness you will have, also becarefull you do not go to low because you can burn them out very fast, one way to tell is if they get to hot, if they are warm you should be ok. Ok, use all white led's or what ever you decide makes it easier, 3.2 or 3.8 or what ever u use assuming thats the one's u buy, also you have to determine the the voltage of your battery (exam: 6V 2000mah) if any higher the more power it will put to the led's just ask the the guy from the electronic store to Calculate for you, it has been awhile, your making think again my brain hurts LOL :), have to go back and refresh my memory, Let me go back and look what I have done and on tuesday I will post it for u....
