I only saw one blog for LED lights/ headlights, I am thinking of doing the laser projector logo and also replacing the conventional headlights and door bulbs with LED, has anyone replaced and using them? Pics please of what they look like on the car.

Here is the link for the laser projector for the doors, I just ordered them, so I will put up some pics when I get them installed. They look pretty cool


Here are what the projectors look like on the ground, I installed them under the door.


I converted my headlights to a LED 5/34 projector assembly. I love the result. quite a bit of cutting needs to be done--headlights rings, and mounting brackets. i bought a spare set just in case.

using H3 conversions wasnt an option for me because they spray light all over as the lenses were not designed for the way LED produces light. you NEED projectors to A) get the most out of your light focused LUX (not lumen) and B) not blind oncoming drivers with your LUMENS.


Those lights look pretty cool, I only see the one set on the front, from the description they are high and low beams, so you could run all 4 like that?

Or how did you wire them up?

yes they are high and low, you could wire them up to run all 4 at the same time pretty easily. i wired the right hand side with factory wiring, and jumped to the other side. the LED's draw much less current than the sealed beams I had.

I used these, they are Chinese knockoffs and we will see how long they last...but for 50 bucks ea. they are a screaming deal they are a clone of the revered JW speaker lights. (which I may upgrade too if these fail soon)


How did you mount them? After reading your post I ordered a set for my 64 DeVille and the headlight isn't believed on the back and doesn't fit into the besel. 

Jimmy Johnathan did say there was a lot of cuttung to be done to install the new LED headlights in a few posts before yours
So not a plug and play item

63 guidematic issues

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…


Another advantage of the Pertronix III

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

Stuck at two red (dash) lights!

I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.

By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be…
