LED kits

Is there a site or a member that already sells the full interior LED kit?.... the whole kit, with instructions. I have not been able to find one.
I'm not trying to buy bulbs from eBay, amazon, craigslist, walmart , Texaco etc; to put together a kit. I understand these cars are old so I may be reaching for something that is not there.

And also are there any sites that sell Impala specific replica or aftermarket parts?... door sills, steering wheels, floormats etc?...

any help will be appreciated, thank you beforehand

I think cars should be driven, not kept in garages their whole life. If you want to collect something, collect stamps.

It shouldn't take that to tell anyone this forum is expiring. lol Nice weather, evil FB, and abundance of discussion/details from several years backs on already-covered topics, - are better explanations why fellas aren't flocking here of late.

Without even being logged in, simple search "interior LED kit" immediately brought this one up from a few years ago: Hopefully gets you there-

I also seem to remember MOJO96SS also selling kits for our cars. Pretty sure that's who I got my Interior Kit from and his pricing was pretty good too. Can't seem to find any of those threads though ?? Don't think you are going to find any "instructions" as the swap of the bulb is pretty much just RnR. His kit had each bulb or bulb types labeled for what item they went to....ie - Shifter Indicator, AC Control, Courtesy light, etc.

Do a search on the forum for LED bulb issues cause I seem to remember some having issues with the exterior bulbs not working correctly with TurnSignals/brake Lights. Pretty sure you need to update your flasher as well but not 100% certain on that as I only did the Interior Bulbs due to the sequential setup I have.

================================================== =============


'95 Caprice SS conversion - Bonny Buckets - 96 Column, Shifter and Console - 3.73 Gear and Herter tune - Z/28 Cluster - Blazer OH Console - Green/Pink bushings - Chromed Impala Wheels - Eibach Springs and Bilstein Shocks - Corvette Engine Dress - the list goes on and still more to do...it never ends.

MAC seemed to be doing himself a favor focusing on the interior. Lots of talk and attempts at exterior apps for LED years back, but no lack of confounding extra details involving added resisters, new flashers and even rewiring. I recall all kinds of chat about high failure rate from certain sources compared to others. I even popped for a couple of signal bulbs reported NOT to require anything else = no go.

But I'll hazard the industry (and products) have had a chance to sort things out over the past few years, and that there's a track record of successful apps for guys looking to retrofit everything. It appeared the fella in that thread I posted found a good complete list for at least the interior.

I used the search function and the one member who made kits stated that he stopped in 2013.
I've also looked online and some of the bulbs that certain sites suggest are totally different from the ones already installed.
I don't believe any of the local INC members have done this that is why I'm asking you all for info, If they have I haven't met them yet.

And thank you all for the replies

I take it you've looked here. They seem to have at least a methodical approach to the various applications/fitments:
