Amber porch light bulb?

Anyone know of a source for an yellow or amber bulb replacement for the white bulb used in the porch/scare light on our '07 Bambi SE?

A piece of yellow cellophane would be easier and cheaper to find, just put it on the inside of the lens.

Or, you could replace it with a orange LED.

I've got an orange/amber bulb in mine. The bulbs can be found at any auto parts store for a couple of bucks.

Do you have any links to an led source for this type of application (right-angle led that fits the bayonet bulb receptacle)?

I would take out the old bulb and head to Pep boys, they usually have amber bulbs in stock.
You can find a lower wattage one, and it won't melt your lens over time. The 18W or 21W lamps will do that if you forget to turn off the light.
These are truck style backup lights, not really intended for continuous duty with very bright lamps inside.
A 10W amber lamp will do a fine job...just pa attention to the position of the locator pins.

The "regular" bulb number would be something like an 1141. You can see if you can find a 67A (amber large base running light). I don't remember ever seeing an 1141A.
As far as an LED, I tried an 1156A(led), and was unimpressed with the quantity of light. I now have slightly altered 1157 90 degree LEDs in both the scare light and outside porch light. They give quite a bit of light with the brighter output, but are not yellow. I got them from super bright LEDs, and I remember seeing yellow ones on their website.
