    dash lights turn signals high beam ect

     



    Hi, i am trying to find some small flush mount lights to put on my dashboard
    I am after 2 green, for turn signals
    1 blue for high beam
    1 red for ignition
    I would like something that is small and will fit flush on my metal dash.
    it would be nice to find some with a small outer chrome ring, but i am open to all types, i would prefer something that is small so as to not clutter up the dash too much,
    what do you guys use ?
    can anyone suggests a shop or a contact where i might be able to find something like these.
    cheers barnsey

    I used small, nominal 1/4" 12V LED's from Radio Shack. Two greens for turns, one amber for hi beam. They also had red, but at that time no blue (blue LED's are harder to do, I think). They have a very thin chrome trim ring that can be used or not, and a threaded shaft w/plastic retainer nut.

    Those from HRC look pretty sweet. Here's what I used - 7mm lense with a tiny trim ring. Super compact lamp assembly, and $2 each.

    I have the 5/32" one's from Ron francis. The one's you speced from the hotrod co. will require you to space them out due to the mounting size of 3/4". Only a thought as you were planning on loading your dash with 4 of them.
