Following on from recent discussion here (http://www.pradopoint.com/viewtopic.php?p=4312#4312).

I've installed some Hella DuraLED white position lights (parkers) and indicators to my Sovereign bull bar to replace the stock Narva incandescent combination.

The Hellas are attached in such a manner so as to cover the existing mounting holes with the new LEDs, not a simple as it sounds given the size difference and change from one combination to two individual lights.

Here's a shot of the mounting holes:

(Bugger, forgot to upload the shot. Will have to wait till I can get on the laptop again.) :x

Here's some shots of them installed, I forgot to take one with them off so you can see how they sit on the bull bar.

I like this last shot.

The white LEDs look brilliant (literally) on the road, I see a lot of trucks on Bells Line with them and they really stand out. After years of motorcycling, I'm a big fan of being visible on the road. Oh, and of course there's the bling factor. :-)

The indicators aren't as bright as I expected, but they aren't bad.

The Hellas are very expensive, there over $100 worth there - but as I said in my other post, I reckon they will be worth it as they should last longer.

Oops - I forgot to include the Hella part numbers. :oops:

Thanks for the PM toytech.

The white units are Hella DuraLed 2054, see http://snipurl.com/1dbic

The amber units are Hella DuraLed 2026, see http://snipurl.com/1dbie

For the indicators I probably should have used Hella DuraLed 2051, see http://snipurl.com/1dbig as these might have been brighter as they are similar looking lens design to the 2054s - but they are not ADR compliant for an indicator as they have a very narrow viewing angle. I don't think ADR compliance is an issue as the lights on the bull bar are in addition to the original lights.
