10 LED per light, seem to be sealed well, certainly bright enough in my opinion, I dont think I have any pics of them lit. Nice easy project that is a good start at reducing the amps through the light switch.

Lovely. I used to have a 22' Shepherd Utility, single Chrysler. They really built those engines well, all geared accessories. Mine sank one unfortunate late November when I was out of town, Pump out the hull, drained and replaced oil and fuel and started right up. Then broke up the harbor ice, motored a mile in the snow at night to get it on the trailer... procrastination can bite

i bought my LED clearance lights from the local TA truck stop. They worked well. They were one wire and they worked great, I see no reason to go through the hassle of dealing with a ground wire (the entire aluminum skin is a ground). The red wire was in a slightly different location than the originals but, it was easy to make them work.
I think it is worth mentioning that the way they were originaly installed at the factory was to caulk them with Butyl caulk after they were installed. I removed the inner panels for access and caulked them the same way. If you are doing this task from the exterior only, be sure to carefully seal both the screws and the wire with Butyl caulk. The last thing in the world you want to do is cause a leak.

Agreed.
When I reinstalled my castings, I bedded them down of Tempro, but made sure the weep hole was clear.
My front clearances have 2 wires... I plan to leave the ground unconnected... but the rears... some have 1 wire, and some have 2...

All my clearance lights were 1 wire and I used stainless screws to install them. You may get a better ground of the body then of some old wire with a poor connection somewhere.

Yes indeedy Dave!
Fronts are done, because I had none before. Rears are a ok with incandescent for now, but I do have an issue with the center one "Flaring" light onto the rear camera at night I noticed. I will have to build a little cap/shield.

Tomorrow, I hope to connect those sneaky stealthy LED white Daytime running, amber blinker lamps I put between the headlamps and grill!
