    If you know what you are doing, why'd you make this thread? I just don't see it working out well, different bulb is going to have a different voltage/wattage something different than the original, which may or may not cause other internal issues. Just my .02 - I'm not electrician so I don't know much, just doesn't seem like a good idea to me. I guess I just don't see the point of it, either way. Good luck and post your results lol

    sorry didnt mean to imply i knew what id be doing i just thought possibly someone on here would and either just knew how or has actually tested it, i knew that the voltage of different bulbs could cause different problems but again just wondering if someone knew a way around internal damage and how about i could do it if still even possible?
