We got the warm white version, and they match the old halogen bulb color pretty closely.

IF it looks like a standard automotive lamp go to a standard automotive type store (Discount-auto-zone, Pooped Boys,, O'Rilley's et-al) and compare.

IF you see it looks like a1156/1141 thn it is most likely a 1141

Most LED assemblies advertised as 1156 are really 1141 so go for it.

Before I had the advantage of all of the above, I have ordered these:
White Disc Shape Side Pin 24-SMD-1210 G4 LED Light

I'll get it in a few days and report back.
Thanks

Once I did one in 3 hours, the other 10 went pretty easy and only took about 3 to 4 hours to do them all. I now turn all the florescents on and touch the outer lense after a couple hours and the plastic is not even warm so I'm pleased with the results.
That's what I did on the Dutch Star a month or so before we traded it in on the Magna, right down to drilling the rivets out and removing the transformers and sockets.

I did try one expensive ($15) cool white bulb (out of 4 bulbs there) over the table. Wife hates that color and noticed it immediately. I got the warm white strips for the fluorescent fixtures. She never noticed the difference!
