Default Smoke Lenses and Bulbs

I would like to get some bulbs that don't appear orange behind my smoked lenses when the lights are off.

Question, I don't remember from when I put them in but I know the fronts are 1157's. What are the rears. I'm thinking 1156's?

These appear to be the ones. I'd like to find out who makes them to see if my father can order them at his store.

yes the rears are 1156, single filament. 1157 is the front, dual filament.

I never saw those bulbs before...interesting.

Default Bulbs

I found the bulbs you are looking for at Pep Boys. They are made by a company called APC and are called the Titan series for the supposed titanium coating over the bulb. They are available in both the 1157 dual element and the 1156 single element for the rear. They look great but are more expensive than the ones on Ebay. I paid 5.99 each. Attaached are pics with and without

Damn,that looks good. It makes a hell of a difference, then. Good.

They better come with a lifetime warrenty for $6, though.

Thanks

No-one seems to offer the Titan single filament 1156's, why is that? Only do 1156 in a 'waffle type', whatever that is.... (LOADS of dual-filament 1157's everywhere).

My dad could "get" both bulbs. His cost will be $5.33 each for the 1157 twist type amber and $6.55 each for the 1156 twist type amber colored. Yikes...

I forget what he said the waffle type were but did say I didn't want them. I'll order them sometime after christmas.

Thanks for the heads-up. Found the ones I was looking for ( APC Titan), but Autoindulgence.com are the only guys willing to ship worldwide. I've ordered & will let you know when I get them. Pics look great, Slass !

the reason i think your having problems finding the single fillament bulb is because most of these bulbs were made for cars which all your turn signals are usually running lights also

Yeah I figured that, running lights are illegal here in the UK (DUNNO why- just sounds safer having them, reduces the possibility of being mistaken for a car & everything? ) Anyway, they're on order now. Thanks for the input!
