head light bulbs...

so i got my clear corners in the mail. and i said to myself i hate the amber look. i've heard of bulbs that are clear but wehn added power they turn amber. my question is can i get these at an auto parts store like auto zone? and what are the model numbers for the amber parking lights and corners?

Autolumination.com sells chrome bulbs......and I HIGHLY suggest replacing your dome light bulbs with their Xenon Bright White 906's or 194's. HIGHLY.

I've never seen those sorta bulbs(the chromies) at any autoparts store.

LED's will look best and last a lot longer, just remember to get the resistors if you get the led bulbs for the turn signals too.

Care to elaborate? I haven't installed my turn signal bulbs or resistors yet. Is that a fuse or what...?

The EP27 electric based turn signal flasher (5 pin) is compatible with LED's. You can pick one up at Autozone or Murrays. About $14.00 give or take a buck. Your flasher relay is located under the dash on the drivers side. If you change it you won't have the hyper flash if you install LED's for the turn signals.

I was able to fit bigger corner LED's in than the guy in the black truck above. Mine are much brighter than the stock bulbs. I have no chrome in my corners (they are black) I'm sure you can see a link from one of my posts.
