Damn! Thatís a good idea! I always attached mine with a heat sink clip or fabbed up a bracket - JB is WAY easier

rewired again today and noticed that even if i only connect the lights wire, they are still as bright as the brake lights and thats without any other wires connected (other than earth of course.)
is ther a way to stop them being so bright as i guess there too powerfull for the led lights

You cannot connect the "run" wire it's not compatible with your setup.

You can wire a high watt 24 Ω resistor from run wire to ground and that will eliminate the error for the run lamp but no guarantee on the brake lamp.

The idea is that it's metal filled epoxy so should have decent conductivity. I use fancy thermal epoxy for LED lighting but that is way overkill

get your facts right. all it says is
6 Ω for the 21w filament, 24 Ω for the 6w (top lamp)

how the hell does that answer my question?????
the lamps are led (der) they are both the same bottom and top so how does that tell me which one i need????????
the light circuit and the brake circuit are different wires and can be wired to either top or bottom, therefore i still don't know which resistor i need.
the 6 or the 24?????? I only need it for the light circuit as the brake/run circuit works fine.
is the light circuit the 21w??? or is that the brake circuit????
We're not all as clued up as you on electrics you know.
Don't bother answering things if your gonna be a sarcastic idiot. as you can see i have followed this thread all the way and know exactly what it says.
