Does anyone know what kind of bulbs these would be in these cheap lights.

I did something like what i think your trying to do... We had about 50 of these 10mm LED's laying around and a set of cheap fog lights. I pryed off the glass, and made some panels from circuit board stock from Radio Shack, soldered everything together, and glued the lenses back on. They came out pretty freaking bright, and looked horribly out of place on the car.

Here is a link to the short project thread, the lights start about halfway down...

That would be good for LED's, they dont have a wide light path, they are good for more of a spot use.

The lower one looks like the stock adjusting screws, minus the white plastic piece on the end. I have a 2000. Junk yard?
