    I want to convert all lights in my 1993 Subaru Sambar DiasII to LED's.
    Has anyone done this or does anyone have any tips/ideas?

    I also installed a digital voltage meter to the temp gauges, at the same time i can monitor if my radiator fan is working.. 2015-09-23 22.47.33.jpg

    So far I have replaced every bulb on my HiJet with WalMart LEDs except the front blinkers (sockets need modding because bulbs are too square or I need a more tapered bulb), headlights and the plate light (need an 89LL bulb replacement).

    So far total cost was abour $110 US for direct swap bulbs.

    The biggest benefit would be the headlights and going with a relayed harness and upgraded bulbs.

    I purchased a set of Hima H4 9003 LED replacement bulbs for my 91 Carry DD51T. No adapter harness needed. These LED bulbs work normally and even fit within the small confines behind the headlight fixture. Completely plug-and-play. $29.99 on Amazon (ASIN: B0897H19R4)

    I just did all the signal/dome/brake/backup/city lights as LEDs on my van. Headlights are fine as is so far. I need to polish the lenses before deciding the lights there. My blinkers go faster, didn't get a digital flasher yet. Need to research a bit more.

    When I converted my Hijet, I installed a variable rate flasher. I ran a pair of jumper wires from the socket in the fuse block where the flesher mounts, and up-to where I mounted the switch I mount in one of the black switch locations on the dash. The adjustment sticks out just about 3/8th of an inch, and I can vary the flats rate if I tow one of the trailers.

    When I mount the winter light bar, that I have when the snow plow is mounted, that adds more turn signals, because I have the ones built into the Plow headlights, and mounted some LED ambers on the side of them to increase visibility. And a rear bar with turn signals. So, i effectively double the wattage every winter. I installed a 90-amp alternator and some times if I am running the plow pump a lot, it is hard pressed to keep up with the demand.
