A good deal LED clearance lights!

Too bad I did not get these at this price before!
One of the forum's advertisers has the "Grote" style clearance lights, that were OE on the 1970's A/S's and Argosys, for $6.49 each.
These are awesome lights. The wife says that they really "pimp my ride"!
The url is: http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...e/commerce.cgi

The part numbers are:
MDB-R12 Double Bulls Eye Marker (Red)
MDB-A12 Double Bulls Eye Marker (Amber)

I paid $8.49 each for mine back in February. Too bad I did not look at the ad links on the top of the forum's pages.

I know this thread is old but I wanted to see if anyone has used these on a 1976 Argosy or similar? I want to replace all my marker lights as they are in all sorts of disrepair...

Thanks to anyone that knows...

I used these. Cost a little bit more, but have 16 LEDs in each lamp and are bright. These are the only lamps I could find that have a recessed "land" underneath the lamp body to accommodate wiring and connectors (like the old original ones have). All the other new ones I tried were flat on the bottom. Try installing those and you will see why these are preferred.

What about back of lights_space for wiring?

I looks like these bullseye lights have a FLAT back which... with the very short leads coming out of the shell, and has to have a connector BEHIND the light, would not fit flat on the shell.

Long sentence I know, but actual wiring them up would be a problem with NO space behind to tuck the connections.

Otherwise, this looks to be a good buy from a quality company.

Comments...?

Ah, you posted before I finished researching the above. Yes, that's what I'm talking about. And would be worth an extra $2.

Shipping Costs are a bummer !!

Just looked at buying 3 lights Pileus mentioned.

Shipping came at $14.85. That seems steep to me.

Vs. SuperBrightLeds had shipping of same 3 for $2.99 first class mail (large envelope).

Otherwise I'm all over it.....

So the more inexpensive version has a flat bottom and thus nowhere to store the wires once mounted? Whereas the more expensive one has an area behind the mounting surface to tuck the wires? Is that right?

I just put a flat backed LED clearance light on my trailer to replace a original light that I suspected was leaking. Big pain. I had to drill holes through the plastic base of the light for the wires. There is plenty of room inside the light for the connections. But not enough wire left from the Airstream to make easy connections.

Good note Bill. Did you come up with a solution or just tough it out. I really wish i had dealt with this when I rewired...

I ended up ordering these Lights from VTS. They are a bit more cash but I trust that place as I have ordered many times now... I will let you know how the install goes when they arrive.

Update!

These lights are perfect replacements! Easy install. Only the single POS+ wire to connect and the NEG+ is run through the trailer body with the mounting screw. They look great and are super bright compared to the old bulbs... I forgot to snap a shot but I will post one tonight of the results.
