I just installed some modules, I guess you call them that. www.spokeworksled.com Makes them. This time I bought the WART side markers and the Reverse lights. Pretty sure everything but the headlights are available. He has some for a few other cars.... 911, Triumph, etc...

Each module has a std bulb base on it and you just install it like a bulb. They look great. Can't wait to see them in the dark.

These are the side markers.

Just Google your standard bulb number i.e. 1032, 1164, etc. cross to led and you will get a led bulb that fits the stock bulb socket. Most auto parts stores and Wal-mart have them for brake and turn lights.

The maker of these modules wanted BRIGHT. Plus LED bulbs need special attention dealing with the ground. I believe it has something to do with not working or not as well if they share a negative connection.
