LED Headlights
#16
The bulbs you have suggested to use  [Only registered and activated users can see the links Click here to register]) are utter rubbish. do not waste your money..... I've tried the 12v equivalent. Whilst they might be ever so slightly brighter than your incandescent 6v bulb and draw less current I'd suggest that you find a better solution and not waste your time or gamble the tenner....

I've converted my headlamp circuit to 12v through a 6v-12v dc-dc converter and originally tried the 12v version of your suggested bulbs to find them not very good at all - hardly any better than the 6v incendescent bulbs that were previously fitted. 
After a LOT of research I then bought a pair of these [Only registered and activated users can see the links Click here to register] - they give a MUCH brighter output and a proper beam pattern on dip. I have them fitted in 7" Lucas lenses in my 1938 ruby. I can actually now see where I'm going in any weather!
