I am trying to convert from standard 6-volt bulbs in my tail lights to LED. The more the better. I need them to work as tail, blinker and brake lights. Has anybody done this? Is there a supplier that makes these? Also, is there a problem with the flasher not working because the current draw is so low? Thanks, Jag

This is a common conversion and there are all sorts of bulbs available so I would suspect that someone offers 6V LED bulbs as well as 12V.
You just have to put the bulbs in and try it to see if your flasher will still work. If not, there are special flashers available to coreect the problem. I think there's a resistor or something you can get as well to create enough resistanse to get the flasher to heat up enough to work correctly...something like that, don't recall offhand.
Google is your friend, here are a couple that came up:
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
Thanks for the feedback guys, I need the help. I am looking to get a large disk of lights (4" +/-) to give the biggest light possible. I tried out the idea of using 12" LED from HF, but they won't light up at all. :-( One possible cheap application may be from lantern flashlights! Jag
