The front turnies are 1157 (12v/5w) with the double filament. The backup lights are the 12v/21w large wedge type (?). You can take them out and shop for the right size just to make sure you got the right ones.

If you are wanting to get silver ones that glow amber....get some rustolium paint at a local hardware store and paint them...it costs 5 bucks...and you can do them on all your cars...it works great..I did it!

Wouldn't it be easier just to get amber ones?


But your idea is good for interior purposes, definitely!

I used them for my exterior amber bulbs...and it works perfectly! They don't shine quite as bright....but still...it beats buying a bunch of bulbs...save your pocket book some. Green reverse lights...yeah cops wouldn't like that...I think they wouldn't mind blue =)

i got pulled over in my 95 hatch because of blue lights.... the cop just walked around my car and picked out everything illegal about it... i had to get it certified again.. it cost me mega $$$... blue bulbs are just not worth the hassle.....

on a site note...anyone try LEDs for their tail lights? i have carbon fiber altezza lights, and i heard LEDs will look HOT!

ive got the original clears in my civic and have red bulbs no probs from the cops here, or hi pos. the back up bulbs should be 7440 or 7443 those are the wedge numbers. i know the brake lights are 7440'2 and the back turns are 7443's. have amber turns and red brake look badass at night, the brakes are blood red no fading yet had them over 8 months. bulbs are neon coated red. :roll:

since we're on the bulbs subject, anyone know where I can get 00 SI fog lights and turn signal bulbs that are the same yellow as the lexus foglights. Want them to match my headlights.
