Default Red LED lights in the Deuce

I am slowly converting the blue LED lights in the Deuce to red. I am also adding some new lighting to modernize her.

Excuse the blur but with the flash off the shutter is open for a long tome



Under the dash I took out the clear bulb and but a red light cluster in (Note the lock and window swich is still blue here

Here is what I did it with fit right in where the old bulb was. You only see the light given off not the light itself



What I have done today. The switch lights where a bear to disassemble and paint the LED light with a sharpie. All lights work off the dash light control you can dim them or make them brighter

The lighting on the doors, did you get power for them from the power lines on the door lock switches?

And where exactly did you tuck those lights (I assume LEDS)? OH and what type of LEDs did you use?

Looks good!

Thanks!

The power lines on the doors are spliced into the door lock light wires. For the door handle LEDs I used one single red led bulb from radio shack (Got the Idea from a MCF member tough I forget who now) the map pockets are a tape strip of 4 red LED lights from auto zone (I had to also use adhesive as the double stick tape was lame) placed this strip just under the front lip inside of the map pocket (had to drill a small hole inside the pocket to run the wire.

The switches them self I disassembled (A royal pain) took the blue sleeve off and used a red sharpie on the bulb.
