LED replacement parking light assembly for 1964-1/2 - 1966 Mustangs. This LED light will replace your original light and is a brighter and safer alternative to traditional bulbs.
When using LEDs, your stock flasher mechanism cannot engage properly, due to less heat given off from the LEDs than original bulbs. HW2811 is a two terminal flasher that allows your flashers/turn signals to work properly when using LED style lights.
If you’ve been following along on our Weekend Wrench project car, you’ve seen we’ve done several upgrades to modernize our Mustang. One area where classic Mustangs really could use an upgrade is in the lighting system, so today we’re going to show you how to install a set of these LED parking lights. The LED parking lights are going to screw into your factor retainers and plug right into the factory bulb socket. They feature 48 LEDs so it’ll be far brighter than the factory bulbs.
Installing the LEDs is pretty much as simple as replacing the light bulb in the parking light. We start by removing the screws that hold the lens to the housing. We’re going to pop out our lens and twist and turn to pull our original bulb out. The LED is going to install in the factory bulb socket. Since there’s no bulb to hold on, it can be hard to push in and turn. There’s a slot right between the wires. Put a small flat head screwdriver in and use that to install it. We want to make sure the wires are rolled up so their centered and we’re going to reinstall the screws to hold the lens. Now we’re going to test our lights.
The LED parking lights are a simple upgrade that looks great on the front of our ’65 Mustang. Installation will only take you a few minutes per side so you’ll be back on the road in no time.
If you are looking for a stock look with new technology these are for you. I went LED for lower power consumption and brighter lighting. These did not disappoint. Installed in about 5 minutes and are 2-3 times brighter than the originals.
