      I have changed all of my Blow Molds over to LED. 1st make sure you know the "base" size C7 is normally e-12  (I will attach a chart) the "C7" Normally is the bulb size/shape. 2nd There is Basically two light types in Blow Molds e12 c7 and med base (regular house light bulb type)  Both types can be changed over to LED. In most cases all you have to do is screw out the incandescent and screw in the LED. On some of my Blow Molds the Lamp Base (med house type) had a Plastic collar that wouldn't let the LED bulb screw all the way down. So I carefully cut off about 1/4 inch of this collar and now works great. When selecting the LED bulbs they can be confusing. Once all we had to know was that a 100 watt bulb was brighter than a 40 watt bulb. Well LEDs don't quite work that way. They use "K" to determine the Brightness ( I will attach a file)  I found that in a Blow Mold that is Dark/allot of collar that the 5000 - 6500 K range works the best, the Clear/white Blow Molds use a lower K. It's really all about preference and you may have to try different ones to find out which one works best for you. Hope this helps
