Default 1969 XKE LED Headlight Conversion

Anyone changed their XKE headlights to LEDís? Looking to make the conversion on my Ď69 and interested in any feedback on products and installation.
Thanks!

I did, sorry I don't have pictures the car is in for major body work and the headlights are out of it at the moment. It was an easy conversion though, made a huge difference in light output. (I'm going from Series 2 to Series 1 covered headlights and will post pictures when that is done).

I don't remember, bought them last year and the car is at the body shop so can't see if there is a name on the front of the light until I get it back (and given they've had the car since March I'm not holding my breath). But I bought a bunch of them looking for the right look I was going for.

The ones I ended up using looked like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/7-inch-CREE...-/162536830319

(I like Cree LEDs they tend to hold up well and put out a lot of light). But you might like something that looks a bit more classic.
