I want to stick with green and these are all the options for green!
Feedback would be greatly appreciated!
I plan to do this mod in in about a week and a half to 2 weeks!
The above pictures may not be in green but they have green as an option!
Thought the pictues might help people that don't feel like surfing the web!
Thanks
dale

please keep in mind I need ones with a plated base made for a 168/194 socket so I can modify them to work so the above options are the only options on the particular site linked to.

Thanks again
dale

I say go with the wide angle LED. It has a more even light disbursement which will negate more dead spots than most.

Wide angle has a lense built in to distribute the light better. Regular LEDs have a more concentrated look (ie- dots). Now the question is which one of those is the best choice. I think #3 is a wide angle, but I'm not sure. #2 and the bigger bulbs probably won't fit in the hole in the lightbar. I want to get some white LEDs for my lightbar.

I would say a wide angle LED with as many LEDs on the base as possible. I have some of those single wide angle LEDs (option 4 above) in my instrument cluster, and they are hard to see at dusk and dawn. They just aren't really bright enough. There are also a few dim spots on my cluster because of their lack of power output.
