Found clear lenses need orange bulbs?

Hey Guys,

I want to find regular orange bulbs for my markers and turn signals (front). Found some quality clear lenses, reversible and like the look.

I'd rather not change over to LED unless someone has a compelling argument.

I found the dual filament 1157's in orange for a couple bucks but shipping $7.95 each?

Anyone know what the part number for the marker single filament would be?

Also a source for all 4 bulbs, our host doesn't stock, neither does Sierra Madre?

Thanks,

Scott

Thanks for that H2O,

Tell me about the LED's what did you use? Source? And, what did you use for a relay for the blinkers??

Thanks Guys,

Darrin,

I have Spokes Brake and Tail Lights along with 3rd Brake Light in the back window.....agreed. And I'll probably opt for his new Fog Light kit. But I'd like to go incandescent for my clear fronts.

Thanks A2, looking for orange/amber.

I'll give those some thought H20 thanks...

Just go to any local parts house. Amber 1157 are common. The side marker bulbs less so, but shouldn't be too difficult to find locally. No need to order online and pay shipping.

I had incandescent ones before and they were not bright enough to be a nice orange when you use the turn signal.

I switch to LEDs for Tore and they are a great upgrade. https://www.bergvillfx.com/
