I was wondering if anyone has changed out the amber bulbs that are the blinkers in the headlights, and if so where did you get the bulbs from? Thanks for your help!

Got the bulbs off eBay - changed mine to silver looking / amber glowing bulbs. Cleaned out the front end a bit. That's the kind of bulb that I got:

Note: the bulb did not fit directly - I had to modify the plastic base a bit to make it fit. Maybe because I had 7443's shipped to me instead of 7440's - ask the seller.

I found some 7440 LED bulbs from superbrightleds.com, would I be able to use those bulbs as my blinkers?

Your blinkers will be flashing annoyingly fast.

Just pull. By the way, zoltiz is right about LED bulbs in the turn signals -- just don't do it. We speak from experience.

anybody use clear bulbs in the blinkers? if i'm interpreting the CT DMV laws correctly, i can use clear blinkers, and i don't have to bother with ebay silver coated bulbs.



"Sec. 14-96r. Color of stop lamps. Turn signal lamps.
(a) Any vehicle, when required under sections 14-96a to 14-96aa, inclusive, shall be equipped with a stop lamp or lamps on the rear of the vehicle which shall display a red or amber light, or any shade of color between red and amber, visible from a distance of not less than three hundred feet to the rear in normal sunlight, and which shall be activated upon application of the service or foot brake.
(b) Any vehicle, when required under subsection (b) of section 14-96e, shall be equipped with electric turn signals which shall indicate an intention to turn by flashing lights showing to the front and rear of a vehicle or on a combination of vehicles on the side of the vehicle or combination toward which the turn is to be made. The lamps showing to the front shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable and, when signalling, shall emit white or amber light, or any shade of light between white and amber. The lamps showing to the rear shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable, and, when signalling, shall emit a red or amber light, or any shade of color between red and amber.
