General Discussion / Re: LED Bulbs Revisited
« Last post by X33RS on Today at 02:47:31 AM »
Even if the wrong incandescent bulb is used on the inside tail light of a non RS 69 Camaro it lights up too brightly and will mask the brake light effect of the outside light.  I still see this quite often today.

My father is a big fan of LED and has all his vehicles converted.  He has sort of gotten me toward that path but I haven't done all the cars 100%.   I convert the inside dome lights to LED on all the cars because I've found the regular bulbs will cook the plastic over time with too much heat.  When I tried LED's in the tail lights of our RS Z I didn't really like it.   Looked okay with parking lights on, but with brakes or turn signals it actually turned more orange than red and had this weird look, brand new lenses too.  LED's too bright I guess so I took them back out.  I will say with the LED's in the dome, the rear console, and both under dash lights, and white interior, it's blinding at night.
   I haven't done the dashes on my stuff but my father does.  Have to get the dimmable versions for the dimmer to work.  When I'm driving his I have to dim them down, just too daggum bright for me and makes it more difficult for me to focus on the dark road in front of me.  So I don't do the dashes on my own stuff.

However I wouldn't mind some LED's down in the console gauges.  If I remember right those were odd sized single terminal.  Anyone know that number off hand?

I'm not sure on 69 tail lights. But yes, brighter than original.   I did one side first before buying another pair of bulbs to see if there was a difference, and my car looked so good my son went and did the same bulbs for his 78 Cutlass. Way better than old filament bulbs

Not sure what to say, I took the picture from the 69 manual. Very odd.

Thanks James, good stuff. Interesting how none of the pictures have the lower hose crossing over the upper hose like this picture from AIM.
RPM... The Assembly Manual image in your post illustrates 67-68.
69 is a different set up, the 3/4" hose nipple is on the top of the waterpump, not the passenger side like 67-68

It would help people give advice if we knew which parts and what your goal is...??

Like Gary said.

I've had good luck with sharkhide and restoguard dry. Had some spotting on my leafsprings and switched to rem-oil(CHP tip). Rem-oil also comes in towelettes. Seems like the porous surfaces prefer hydrocarbon based products where smooth prefer alcohol based(sharkhide) Just an observation. Like Bill stated, high temp is an issue, dont know who is producing the best high temp clear. VHT, Rustoleum?
