yea like that, you could even use 110, or 100 ohm resistors to be a little brighter...

the leds i've bought are really bright. I like them. Now i have to find a extra set of tail lights so i can do the conversion

BTW, i'm using these for the turn signal. So will i have troublem with electrical? i'm using 30 leds, so will it hyper blink? also does it use more energy then a standard halogen. I'm currently running a 1000watt system, and can't afford more power loss.

30 will draw around a quarter amp (.25 A)

what wattage are the bulbs in there? the leds would be equiv current draw of about a 3 W bulb

One thing that is commonly done to make them brighter is to flash them, fast enough so the human eye cant tell, that way it can hadle more current in the pulses...

i would recommend as many as possible LED tail light conversion - Page 2 -- posted image.

3w for 30 leds? How many led's to make it so it doesn't flash. I don't want that hyper bink sh*t.

as far as I can tell those are 21 Watts, if you want the same current draw to you do

so you could do 70 sets of LEDs (210 lol!)

or you could use a resistor to burn off power

or you could replace the flasher <-- preferred

I'm thinking about soldering a single resistor to each light. Is that to much? Check out this thread.
