LED lights

Thought I would start this one off in the bar, couldn't find another thread on the forum on such matters.

I've done a fare few miles lately and in some cases not the best of weathers. My neighbour has just fitted running lights to his old car as felt he was going "undetected these days" and it got me to thinking.

Especially going round the M25 in mist and rain I did think it was time to do something but also, alas I really do think its time to have flashing orange indicators on the front as well but without changing the overall look of the original "one fitting does all"

I've got LED rear stop/tail bulbs and they are a great improvement.

I've been talking to Gil at and he does pretty well what I was thinking of.

An LED orange flashing indicator with a bright white or warm white side light all in one. Now because this is LED I have to change the flasher unit and the rear bulbs too so it ain't a cheap conversion (although what is stopping me from putting an inline 21w bulb tapped up inside the front panel to draw the correct current?)

Complete kit is £140+VAT and If I want the flasher unit to look period in an ali casing that's another £20! To his defense he does know what hes talking about, gives a good guarantee, has developed a lot of new ideas himself and is not a dodgy ebay suppler.

I've also pondered could put some bright white LED's under the P grill but there's all sorts of regs regarding how far in/out running lights should be positioned (but quite frankly I'd be more than happy to see a copper pull me over and try and enforce it evileye

IMHO I really don't like the look of bright white side light bulbs on a "classic" and much prefer the traditional warm white look BUT then I would like to be seen too..... DILEMMA!
