How much are the LEDs? I feel a Mark II coming on :geek:

(a bit of heat shrink is better than insulating tape you know ;) )


Would these be ok?

Ah well, I was half wrong see :oops:

You need offset pins for a stop&tail light to make sure the lamp goes in the correct way round, otherwise you could get 21W tail lights and 5W stop lights.

But the standard lampholders are for single filament lamps so as such take parallel pins

It's the stress you know :cry:
