Leds wont be brighter, well not without COST :0) , you need a fair few to get the bright display, do you have the brightness turned all the way up, it resets to LOW when the dash is removed, it is the lights switch, the little lever, just push it up and hold it before it switches the interioir lights on, should go brighter, in the GHIA you have do it with lights off, then again with lights on.

The low series interior light only has high and low setting unlike the high series which is totally variable.

The globes do get fairly hot and give off heat (another advantage of LED's they are very cool), the heat might melt the condoms not sure though.
