Led's bulbs

Went on Ebay and bid for most everything...the interior LED bulbs were $12.00 for twenty bulbs...the Brake Light Bulbs were $8.99, free shipping on both...the exterior running light LED bulbs were $10.00 for ten, also free shipping..You can find some great buys on Ebay if you are willing bid and wait..Just purhcased a $60.00 bathroom faucet for $12.00, brand new still in the box...Check it out..these are the interior bulbs...

If you replaced all the lights you say for under $75-$100 I REALLY want
to know where you got them and part numbers!

My tail/brake lights have begun leaking because the snap-on lenses are just not tight across the top. This admits rain water, and it blows out the bulbs when they get hot. I temporatily fixed this with strips of white electrical tape across the top on the lens.

I assume an LED bulb would not have the same reaction to water. Does anyone know where I could find an LED brake/tail light for the Surveyor 186? I can't use the bulbs that are pushed in and turned. My bulbs have the flat base that just snaps straight in to the socket.

Thanks

Maybe you can dig up the sellers' ebay name(s) so we can find similar deals....

What key words did you search for and/or what is the seller's ID?

Electrical Grease

Around the base of the bulb, I put a good amount of electrical grease..I do mean a good amount..that seems to protect the bulb base, same on the 194 type push bulbs for running lights..
