Headlight Setup

this is the deal, I got the euro diamond clear headlamp assembly coming the the crib right now. :woot: But i dont know what type bulbs to put in. :hammer: i know what size but i wanted to do something a lil diferent and get like a red tint instead of the hyper white blue tint ever one else has (dakota is red). If not that then what hyperwhite setup should i go with for a nice bright blue type tint. thanx

you wanna use a reed bulb for your head light? youre not going to see anything...and if you dio find a bulb with red tint...itll prob look pink. not very cool or safe. i would go with a cool white bulb if you are going to change bulbs...

the blue is just reflection of the blue bulb.
He's correct. they're APC bulbs. they do come in yellow, but the boys will pull you. Anything other than blue, but that's only because there white when on. thanks for the compliments

This is what i went with. The headlight bulbs are Euro Lites, available online at circuitcity.com or at your local circuit city. They shine pure white with no blue or purple tints. And the corner bulbs are the new sylvania irradescent blue bulbs, they light up amber. The police cant say a damn thing.

Actually, yes they are quite bright, a lot brighter than the stock bulbs that were in there. As for the bulb you have that goes out when you flip high beams on, sounds like a short in the high beam wire, or maybe its just a bad wire altogether. :huh:

the bulb could be bad too for that matter. take it back out and look at it closely. if the filament wire is hanging loose this would cause that. the bulb has 2 wires in it... one for low and one for highs. so if the high one is not connected the lows will still work but the highs wont. you say when you tap on the fender it comes on... if the wire is loose what is happening is you are causing the wire to bounce then come into contact with the other side completing the circuit.

Here's mine...





I used Sylvania Silverstar headlights and Sylvania turnsignals. They're blue when off, but light up orange to stay legal.

Headlights - Model 9007 $45 for a set of 2 bulbs
Turnsignals - Model 3157 $23.99 a set 2, you need 2 sets to make 4 bulbs.

I have the Sylvania Silverstars for heads and turns. I left the tiny bulb amber because the cops in my town live to write people tickets. In my town the cops here right more tickets per capital than any other town/city in Mass. Even more than Boston. So I try and stay out of their way as much as possible. I don't even notice that those bulbs are amber anyway. They are so small and the Blue Silverstar are so big and Blue. I notice a lot of people checking out the lights when I am driving around. Makes me feel better about spending 250 big ones on the diamond clears and bulbs.
