Default What type of light in my JDM taillights?

Ok, I installed my Red/Clear taillights a couple months ago and in a failed attempt to spray paint the orange turn signal bulbs I pretty much ruined them.

Now I have no clue what kind of light these are being that they are different from the OEM ones.

Anybody know what kind of lights are in the JDM turn taillights? OEM is 1157...and i tried buying the 1157A which is orange but it didnt fit...help

Thanks

The bulb in my JDM taillights are weird.. There is no "part" number for the US market. The bulb came straight from Japan. Anyways.. it has this written across the bulb.

KOITO12V21W PY21W E4 2DS JAPAN 0-5-Q.

Weird eh?

If worse comes to worse, you could splice your socket from your old taillights to the JDM ones.. that is, if you still have them.

Hope this helps.

JGard - You know how you can barely just see the orange when u switch to red/clears?
I was attempting to vanquish any orange on my car...i sprayed my front bumper lights (Euro style) silver and it turned out really really nice and clean. So I thought I might just do the same to the taillights since I already had the panels open from installing them...shouldve just left it...=/

The bulb type is PY21W (surprise, surprise - 21W). Best replacement is the Philps Silver Vision that I understand is available in the US. It has 'offset' pins and you may need to file down one of them to fit in the holder (they won't come out).
