Hey guys do you know of anyone that has swapped their stock 1157 bulbs for a direct replacement LED style, like tail lights, brakes and blinkers?

If so I’m wondering if the new LED flashers worked or if they had to wire in a load resister?
I’m trying to get the tail, brake and blinker lights brighter than stock.
Thx
KS

I did the conversion on my daily driver, a 1987 Buick Estate Wagon. Had to replace the flasher relay to a led approved one. Now its working great except there is not a sound when the flasher is on, only the light.

Havent done the conversion on my Cadillac, but might look into it next year. The main reason for me to convert is to reduce heat and current on the 54 year old cables and sockets. 

Thanks for the response. I did it to a more modern truck with no issues but figured I better ask first on this deal. I'm going to give it a try and will post results.

thx

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
