Bright lamps (9005/HB3) are currently halogen lamps and converting them to 9005/HB3 LED's.  
 
Ordered wrong lamps (H7) so returning these this week.  Difference is the connector here.
 
9005
  
 
Ordered H7 sockets which may work for me as I think this is the same as the H7.

Update 21st August, 2019
 
Tested LED lamps / automobile connectivity to work fine.  Very bright lamps.
 
Waiting on the new H7 rings for installation.  Ordered another pair from Amazon yesterday (twice the price of Ebay and 2 day delivery).
 
No errors when plugging in the new LED lamps. 

Update 22nd August, 2019

Purchased wrong LED lamps. Ordered correct ones today. The diameter of the heat sink was too big on the old ones.

Update 25nd August, 2019

Ordered two different LED lamps (they are all similiar but different) and another LED mounting bracket.
Tried to fit the new LED lamps in the new brackets and they did not fit.

Giving up now after trying 4 different lamps and two different brackets. Not worth the effort.

What I am pleased with that I could return them all for credit with Amazon.

Update 26nd August, 2019

Decide to try one more LED lamp. This one is a fanless LED lamp.

Here is a picture of the type but not sure which MFG to get yet. All that I care about is that the power wires exit the back so that the lamp fits in the socket adapter.

 

fanless
