LMC had a set of corner lenses that I really wanted but they were $50 plus another $11 in shipping.

Oh, by halogen do you mean the standard incandescent? If so, that's what all my bulbs are; incandescent bulbs (standard, factory, stock, OEM).

LMC is a bit pricey on some of their stuff, but parts for my truck are hard to come by so they really have no compitition. & i do have the standard incandescent. I'm going to order a new set of H4's this weekend because my passenger side low beam is out. then i have to order a new set of markers because one of the lenses popped off. then i'm gettin my new tailights smoked. then it's ordering all LED's, both inside and outside :thumbs:

Looks real good. Hate to make suggestion, but stealth/chromed signal bulbs would look even better, nice chrome bulb look that lights up amber.

That could be an option. Do any local stores carry them? How much (I'd need 4 2357 bulbs, so 2 packs; and 2 194 bulbs, 1 pack)?

LMC sent me a pair when i bought my markers. i only went with amber because it looked good against the chrome housing and catches your eye :thumbs:

I know what you mean. I don't think I'll change the bulbs. I'd like to do something about the sockets, but I don't think paint will stick to them.

LMC is really nice. But you have to get an order together for over $1,000 to get free shipping and the oversized item fee waved. It is nice knowing that I can get almost everything on the truck in one place. They are the only place that carries FULL stainless door handles. Everyone else just sells the tape-on covers.


I should have mentioned it earlier, but I really like how your truck looks KillaF150. Of the Ford body styles, I think yours is my favorite. Yours is kind of like mine, fully stock outside with a few custom parts.

:cheers: thanks man! I've put of hard work and money into it (you know how that is) It's a slow work in progress. id say out of all the f150's, i like 78-79 body style the best.

I didn't know they only kept that body for 2 years. Seems kind of short to me.

Ya, I've only had my truck for a year and a half and I already don't want to add all my accessories and stuff up. Oh well. I'm having fun and enjoying it. To me that's all that matters.



Does anyone know where I can get new stainless screws that hold on my parking lights?

I think they are an 8mm with 24 threads per (something) and like 25mm/1 inch long.
We have a regional store (Menards) that carries a lot of scews and bolts, but I can't find them.

If anyone knows where I can get them OR even what size they actually are, PLEASE let me know.

I do like the 80-86 body style too. i've always wanted to restore a '79 f150 though. they look amazing if you restore 'em right.
