    I put the Zevo LEDs in the parking lamps. They look great and work great, but aren't much brighter than, or dimmer than, the standard filament bulb. I sort of expected that, but the color tone and flash response of the light outside is nice. I didn't put the socket in the passenger side yet, not sure if I will nurse it out but if it works until the next time I have it in the air i'll nurse it and keep the new socket in the trunk. It still hyperflashes but as I said I suspect my flasher is faulty anyway. I also discovered my drivers side socket has been replaced in the past.

    Just my 2cents,, I had the annoying moisture problem awhile back. I got fed up with replacing bulbs all the time so one day I took the housing out studied the damn thing. I found hair-line cracks ( like everyone has ) and no venting to let heat out. So I used clear nail polish on the cracks ( I know others use different methods ) 2 pencil-sized holes drilled in the bottom just behind the ridge, I also removed that rubber 'plug' on the back side top that has a plastic 'shroud' over it ( I have NO idea what that's for) for further venting and then used the over sized gasgets from Auto-Trix.net. Then I gooped in a generous amount of di-electric grease into the socket for good measure. That's been over 5 years or so ago and I've washed it and drove it in the rain and have had no problems at all. Nothing against LED's ,, I like what I have and love the look of the DRL's. That is all .....

    I used clear packing tape over the lens, to cover the cracks, and the lenses havent leaked since. I have a new set of lamps that I plan on using when I convert to LEDs but I dont want to do it until I have some protection tape for it, like they have for paint and headlamps. I was hoping 3M would sell a cut-to-fit package but I havent seen any yet.
