    Edit:
    If your ONLY trying to work out trying to put a small projector in the parking lamp spot, these wont help.
    I very much appreciate your input, now I know how reflector housing retrofitment is done.

    How about the newer oem headlight assembly like this one? Can we replace the parklight LEDs on these with brighter ones? Name:  images (15).jpeg

    You'd have to change out the whole assembly with GT housings. Just like I did.

    I already own a GT spec though. (known as GLS in the Ph)

    I was thinking of replacing the led park light bulb to a brighter one, I just don't know where to access the led, or if there's any access at all. It's not indicated on the operating manual, I don't have access to the 2016-present version of the service manual.

    You're trying to change the brightness of that led bar 'swoosh?' It's not possible.

    I guess the only way to do it is thru a reputatble retrofitter. Someone from here was able to replace it with a led strip that work as parklight and sequential blinkers.

    Not a fan of all those fancy disco lights as they can glare oncoming traffic, but traffic laws here are not regulated well.

    From the outside it wouldn't be possible, but if you took apart the housing, then yes you could make changes.

    I’m pretty sure all the bulbs are clear except the front turn signal bulbs. What rear parking lights??? The brake/tail(park)light bulb is a p21/5w isn’t it? I don’t recall seeing 194 type bulbs in the back other than the license plate bulbs.

    I like threads like this. I'm glad to see you guys staying on top of your lights. Nothing make a car look older and hooptier than burnt out lights. The 2nd thing I did to my ole 1972 Scamp was to get all the external lights working. Still gotta tear into the cluster. Speaking of the parking lights, I think the Mirage looks quite nice from the front with the parking lights on. Those 194s light up the headlight housing just right and look quite attractive.

    I just hate having a reason to get pulled over. I once got pulled over because I had too much snow on the tool box in the back of my truck blocking the rear window a little bit. I argued that you don't need to see out the back window in a truck, that's what side mirrors are for. Is driving with a truck camper or canopy with no window illegal too? What about pulling a trailer? What about semi's and cargo vans, u-hauls etc...Then it got impounded cause I was driving with a dealer plate from work on my personal vehicle....But I didn't put the plate on the truck. Good times. In the end it got thrown out of court cause technically I had insurance and they had no good reason to pull me over in the first place. Still cost $500 for a lawyer and whatever towing and impound fees were.

    Drivers at work are required to check their lights every day and let me know if one's burnt out so I can fix it right away. They're all on me like white on rice if one of them notice that I have a burnt out headlight in my personal vehicle! Sometimes I purposely just leave it for weeks cause I know it annoys clipboard warriors.
