194 bulbs...the web site will show you what LED bulb replaces it

it looks like the wiring was custom fabbed to work.
just figure out which wire is power and which is ground for each bulb.

to give them a more "floodlight" flow...lightly sand the ends of the LEDs flat
this will cause the light to spread more

cool white i presume would have some blue in it like 6k lighting, warm white is like filiment lighting, natural white would be compared to 4300k to 5k lighting range.

If you look on your ohc there are 3 wires. Green, Red, and Black. Green/ Red are POS and Black is NEG for both. Just match up the polarity with the leds or if the have wiring then match the pos and neg and solder together. For the circuit board type I figure it will be big enough to hot glue the edges of the board to the old black mounting points for the old bulb.

My bulbs put out much more light than the stock ones did. Very white with a hint of blue.
I liked them so much that I even replaced the one in my glove box.

Nothing wrong with using the panels either, you'll just have to do a little more fab work to hold the panels in place.

i was thinking if i run the board led light. that i would just tap into it with both the POS wire and tap the negative into the other wire.
but would the maplight button still activate the light? or would it not work?
