Default FC Porch Light and Shower Light

I need to replace the entry / porch light (amber) on the outside of my bus. The current one is broken - held together with electrical tape and bulb is burnt into the socket. Has anyone found a good replacement (led).

Also, I need to replace the shower light which is just a round dome light for a cargo van. I found something similar from West Marine - http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...8#.UNNIiny9KK0

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I did not see either item covered in previous threads or Dupree Products.

Thanks

Default LED

My porch light housing was fine so I just pulled the guts and replaced with a strip of LEDs from Superbrightleds.com. Works great! The fluorescent tubes were a pain. The bathroom fixture can replaced or just replace the bulb with an LED bulb.

The porch light I have is a single bulb unit - I will have to take a picture (orginal equipment). I was hoping to find a similar looking unit - but it sounds like the one Shane posted is the best solution. I don't think I can just change the bulb because the socket is damaged and the lens is broken! Thanks guys for the input!

I used the 5 1/2 inch led light - works well for me (original was 6" I believe). It is not the soft white but gives lots of light.��

Ours is cracked...that plastic cover for the light. The light works fine but I don't like having things broken. Looks bad in my opinion.

I've tried just finding a plastic cover but not having luck.
