Okay guys, I won't have my other LED samples for a few days yet, but I do have the gel filters. These sample shots were taken with a small filter below the LED. What you'll see is a slightly washed out color as opposed to the bold color of an LED alone. The white LED's I'm using are very bright. Almost too much so. I don't want them to be a distraction for night driving, so I may shrink down the outer transparent ring a little bit or find some other easy way to tone them down a little. I'll do some experimenting.
Pale Red (Oh, who are we kidding, it's pink!)
Next up, I tried using filters to match the factory lighting.
Here is a single blue filter. Hmm, it's not quite right. When seeing the lighting side by side, the OEM colors are definitely more greenish.
So, let's try a single green filter. Getting close huh? It's a little hard to make out, but it's still not there. I need just a little more green.
Lastly, I tried a pair of green filters. Bingo! You couldn't ask for much better, at least with the white LED's I currently have. I do have a few cool white samples coming my way, and I think one of those with a single green filter should look about the same.
I may not get the colored LED's until Monday, but rest assured, I'll get pics of those up as soon as I can.
