New LEDs for the wrecked dodge

I'm planning on installing led lamps for my 38 dodge that was in an accident few months back. Wanted to know if anyone has done it without any problems. It's 12 volt system leaving the front headlights and marker lamps alone just putting led's for the back tail lights and a 3rd brake light!! Thanks Scott.

LED lamps are available from Super Bright LEDs to replace standard automotive lamps. Use red LEDs for taillights. There is a lot of junk for sale so be careful who you by from. Pep Boys sold them but I'm not sure if they still do.
Due to the reduced load the turn signal flasher will need to be replaced with a flasher designed for the LED. Speedway Motors - Street Rod Parts, Race Parts, Ford Flathead Parts, Sprint and Midget Racing Parts, Pedal Car Parts The LED flasher will work with standard lamps combined with LEDs.
