wait does it directly fit or what do u need to do??samo said:I rigged up the dome light to fit an M6 bulb. It's an 18-watt bulb that has the same wiring as a 194, but it's bigger. It just took a little wire and some patience - it's now very, very bright.

Funny....as I was reading this thread I was thinking about doing the same thing. I may try it and see what happens.azkicker0027 said:

That is so true. Even I complain sometimes. A really good bulb. I recommend you get them.dans200sx said:a 10 dollar hybrid b1 hyper white dome light makes the inside of my car light up like its daytime inside. my friends complain that its too bright and hurts their eyes hahaha suckers

Actually I asked my Electronics teacher and he said that we should put the capacitor in parallel with the light. As far as figuring out how long it takes to discharge, we use this equation:Kenix said:

t = RC

where t is the time constant "tau" (measured in milliseconds), R is the resistance of the light bulb, and C is the value of the capacitor. We would solve the equation for C, and substitute "1" (or maybe 1000 since it's measured in milli) for t....I'm not quite sure on why we would substitue 1 right there but that's what he said....I need to double check with him.

Anyway, that's my progress so far. I'll keep every1 posted.

Also, the cluster bulbs are the same as the dome light bulbs? If so I'll measure the resistance from a bulb I have sitting here.
