Well just go get an 893 bulb that is 38 watts

Just cut off the base. But cut right at where the metal prongs start to go into the plastic. Slide that right into the where your old lights were. I was a little bit uncomfy with how loose it was so i made some little aluminum foil wedges.

Sorry for the Quality, but it works and i have yet to try it at night.

You know they make the bulbs fit certain sockets for a reason, right?

Oh, don't tempt me. "He's" fully insured, and I don't need to get locked up for arson though it is my car. Wink

Aluminum foil wedges, bulbs too small for the socket, and high wattage. Sounds like a recipe for a car fire. It's amazing how inconsiderate people are. It's one thing to burn your own car to the ground, but what happens when you park in a lot and the cars parked next to you get damaged as well? All because you got a bonehead idea to rig up the wrong lights in your car.
