[Healeys] LED panel lights

The green turn signal indicator in my Bugeye has always been blinding at night with a regular incandescent type bulb.  Something that was noted in the early reviews of the car in 1958.  No LED needed there, but the main instrument lights are a different story.  The original lighting there is more of a suggestion of illumination.  Wonder about what LED bulbs are needed for that?  Anyone done a Bugeye?

I have read the same thing about not using LED bulbs in the ignition and high beam indicators.  However, I did replace them in my 66 BJ8 and all seems well.  No problems at all.  Very easy to see during the day and at night.  The instruments are also easier to see at night, not bight white but still easier to see.

I followed that thread with interest as my blue Main Beam and green Indicator were always pretty dim.I decided to get some of those little bulbs if I could find them at a sensible price.I decided to hunt down the size and reference of the bulb holder and then seek the appropriate LEDs.The bulb holder is an E10. Over here at least one can buy 10 of the short flat ones for £12:95 inc P&P. The longer ones are a little more, but only pennies really.I only point this out as people have been mentioning prices approaching that for one single bulb. Just to let you know…… Now, I’ve put the bulbs in and they make a noticeable difference to the Main Beam and the Indicator. The instruments? Not sure until I go out at night….they were OK anyhow. (I do hate fossicking around behind the instruments. Always worry that I’ll detach some vital wire or two.) Question……haven’t I heard that LED bulbs aren’t suitable for the red Ignition light? Why? Is there a way of making them work there?Thanks,Simon
