1.2 watt dash warning light bulbs

does anyone know if the Defender 1.2 watt dash warning lights are available in any kind of local auto or electric part stores ? I would hat to have to have 1 or 2 of them ( $3.25 each) shipped for 2 or 3 times the price through UPS and FedEx or even snail mail .

Not sure. I think they are 2w. I bought loads once upon a time and have them rattling round my cubby.

Just take one in and it's straight forward to eyeball a match. That's all I did.

Chris... PM me your postal address.... we have thousands of these suckers at work, use them on our slot machines, so buy them in blister packs of x100.

I'll stick a pack in a jiffybag. should be with you in a week or so.

Same as the other warning lights... the little 1.2w jobbies.

I stopped using the glass bulbs, 1. they are stupid expensive, unless you by a lifetime supply, 2. they are dim. So I went and bought LED's. There are two kinds of these, ones that project the light forward, and ones that do it a bit more diffuse pattern. So if you look at the pic, you see the ones with the white flat top, thy work excellent for warning lights, but need to be in the color for the light, blue for high beams, yellow for warning and red for egads! stuff. The green ones with the clear top work super for gauges, except for the speedo, which use a twist type which can be had from superbright LED's (as well as ebay). I got most from eBay, for around $1.50 for a pair. When you surf ebay, ensure that they are not being shipped from China, unless your not in a hurry. Odd note, when you put ones in the heater and vent illuminators, they are super bright on the top, not so lower. So I painted the end with white paint to dim it straight out a bit, nice and even now. I may want to increase the inline resistor size on the dimmer as all is nice and bright now.

Things like dim lights, a crappy radio, rattles, etc. are all what makes an original 90 a 90. I understand some of these improvements but at the end of the day, these idiosyncrasies are what make your vintage car/truck what it is; a snapshot in time that encapsulates engineering, thinking, etc at the time of manufacture.

If I need LED brightness at night, I will take another car...

Just sayin'...

I understand the quaintness of having to squint at the panel, heck I drove a series IIa for 10 years. Then again I have upgraded a few times to a more modern trouble free design. I could be using my original cell phone, but I'm not. Just an alternative that is cheaper, safer (not that our speed is an issue) and I just don't have to carry a spare 5 of them pack anymore. It is a very valid argument to keep it quaint
