My car is out of comission for a bit so I decided to do a couple things while its down. I bought some LEDs for my FDash a while back so I decided to put them in. I also had the climate control redone in Leds.

i'm gonna be doing red also, right now I have white face gauges that are supposed to make the background blue or green but I disconnected them so now just a lil bit if the stock lighting shines through and I like it stealthy like that so red should be better then blue

what size LEDs are the dash lights? I know the climate control is 3mm. Also what lumination did you use? Why is the oil pressure lights so dark?

i did my gauges all red :) all i did was take out the stock bulbs, take off the little green condoms on the bulbs, and apply a paint on touch up paint. in my case i chose red :) one coat does it. and bing badda boom. u have better looking gauges :)

looks good, now im going to do the same :D...So all you have to do is change out the old stock bulbs and put in the L.E.D's? what size are the ones in the dash?

The LED replacements I used are from www.superbrightleds.com the bulb sizes are 194 and 74 for the oil pressure light. I believe the keyring is a 78 as well. and I need to trim back the oil pressure light as its a bit to long and doesnt reflect the light as it should. I used the WLED-x5 LED Wedge Base Bulbs. from their main page they have a link to a differant site that lists replacements for most cars. also you dont want to use the W6 bulbs as they have a tendancy to leave hotspots. Hope this helps.
