Default Swapping out lights for LED's

I am swapping out all the lights, dome and candle stick lights on my 1992 classic HiLo. We do a lot of dry (boon-docking) camping and this will help. We usually have about 3 or 4 battery operated lanterns we use. For the candle stick lights I got the 1142 these have 2 bumps on the bottom. (specifically GRV Ba15d 1076 1142 High Power Car LED Bulb 13-5050SMD DC 12V Warm White) and for the dome lights I got the 1156 these have 1 bump on the bottom (specifically 3-SMD 1156 S25 Ba15s 12V Backup Signal Blinker Tail Light LED bulbs P21W 7506- White).
The important numbers are 1142 and 1156.

It's been a while, so how did this swap work out?

LEDs flicker and have been linked to headaches. Keep at least one incandescent light burning. Use solar panels in the day to recharrge batteries.
