I wouldn't get leds from there. A very good site is superbrightleds.com Theres a guy that has a site and he sells the led "conversion kits" for accords on his site and he gives instructions on how to remove everything and install. http://www.ledautomotive.com/OrderInfo/98-02Accord/ click on the more info next to each item and then on the how to guide at the bottom.

that site that ryon listed has very good instructions on how to do this... I also would skip the radio shack led's, they may not be bright enough. Most of the soldering work isn't very hard. I had no soldering experience before I did my dash lights to blue and white, and I had very few problems.

i was going to do that mod but it is very time consuming. if i can find an extra cluster and have free time i might play around with it. we threw blue bulbs and it worked fine but not as bright as the LEDs
