For the dash, there are only 3 illumination bulbs
* speedo illumination (two bulbs)
* cluster gauge illumination (one bulb)

they are T10 bulbs (W2.1x9.5d base) or "miniature wedge"
original spec is 2.7 watt (type 161)
can also use T3-1/4 glass with T5/W5W base (max. O.D.: 10.3 mm)

This same bulb (Nissan 26261-89902) is used by the new GT-R

Replace the 7" round sealed beam headlights with LED versions
* For looks
* For lower power usage (?)
* Not for brightness. H4 headlights can be brighter

Like these H4 diamond-type from https://www.jaganlamps.com

levey's Datsun 1200 with home-made angel eyes

HID is a whole 'nother story. HID is a type of arc lam

No need for it as sealed beam Halogen is available in high-lumen versions. Likewise H4. And LED headlights can be even brighter while using the least power. The only down downside is LED headlights are ugly

Interesting site

They don't list headlights for Datsun 1200, but have other bulbs

The room lamp is the too-long version. It will fit if you bend the lamp tabs out a bit
Quote:
DE3175 LED Light Bulb
3mm LED Festoon Bulb
3022 Base
30mm
3 cm(1.18") x 1.05 cm(0.41") x 1.05 cm(0.41")
29mm is the stock Nissan 26736-89902

Which color to buy?
* Cool White 6000K
* Natural White 4500K
* Warm White 3400K
* Red
* Blacklight
* Green
* Blue

The stock room lamp has a frosted cover so I suppose the cool white bulb is not needed? Maybe "natural white" would be closer to the stock incadescent bulb?
Open in new window


Can-bus version or normal version???

Then what about beam angle?
* 30-60 degrees
* 61-120 degrees
* 120-150 degrees
Looks like you have to turn the bulb to a certain orientation to shine the light down

The surprising thing is most bulb vendors don't give brightness specification. For this room lamp it says it is "comparable wattage" to a 3-5 watt bulb. The Nissan version is a 10W bulb, so this LED version probably is not as bright. But SuperBrightLeds also list 21 lumens for the Cool White version. I wonder what the stock version is

I dont remember exactly which bulbs I bought but I replaced almost everything , turns, side markers, reverse, brake, dome, dash light - those bulbs came a little long so I sanded them down to fit the socket on a bench sander, worked fine. Turns you need a flasher for i believe.

Overall they were incredibly cheap comparatively to any parts store, marine or auto. You can buy LED's anywhere now but still expensive

Cool white has a bluish hue
Warm white = yellowish

bought brakes in red, turns in amber, etc...
