Yesterday i installed a bunch of different LED cluster bulbs in the interior of my Riv and thought i would share the results.
I ordered them from DDMTuning.com and they take about a month to arrive form china, but i have been very happy with the quality and i even bought one as a tester 6mo ago to see if it would last in the FL heat and sure enough its still working well.

First i did the corner lights
Didnt edit the pics at all but the camera picks up different spectrums and auto adjusts some of the color so it may look a little off.
Before:

After:

Then i did the door lights

After:

Now every 194 or 168 bulb has been replaced with a pure white LED.
This is what i ordered but i do have 1 extra 5x5050
2X 3156-3157, 60 x 3528 SMD LED, 4.2W, 360 Degree, White

7X 194 LED, 5 x 5050, White

2X 194 LED Bulb, 1 x 1.5W LED, White

Highly recommend this to anyone looking to modernize and "clean up" their interior. or anyone who wants more light inside the cabin at night.

More pics of the inside lit up at night coming...

Thanks,
Matthew

Corner lamps look much better as LED's! I'm very happy with my HID kit from DDM but haven't tried their LED bulbs yet.

Do the LEDs dim properly with cabin 'theatre' lighting, and do the map lights work properly?

Map lights work great but when the leds dim or detect a voltage drop, like sitting awhile with the car off, they will have a slight flicker to them. Not terrible but noticable.
