[DML] Re: LED Tail Lights

In the upcoming issue of Delorean Car Show Magazine, there will be an
article concerning various LED bulbs for tail lights, front turn
signals, and side marker lights

included are before/after current draw (amperage) and luminosity
measurement data

BTW with the Delorean, 1157-style (dual filament) are used on the
front, 1156-style (single filament) on the rear

3441 (DCS 2004 "Best Exhaust")
3307 (revived from the dead)
6147 (EFI conversion)
4523 (Johnny's-X)
Pilot-21 (co-owned with Ken K.)
