How bulbs did you buy and did you alter the gauge face at all to get that white look? That looks hella good!

needed about 3 of those bulbs...just order 4 to be safe. And no modification needed for the faces. I just literally swapped the bulbs. Also, I realize the temp gauge is not as bright, but that's because it uses a smaller LED bulb, and i cannot find one bright enough that fits.

Wow. Those things are bright enough that it looks like you don't need the three above it shining down on it. Or do you? And those rings really do offset the cluster nicely. :thumbsup:

At this point, I'd be happy to find decent incandescent lamps for a reasonable price. Nice, inexpensive LEDs seems very hard to find.

I'm also looking for a warmer colour, 4000k-5000k.

The 194 replacements in the cluster aren't hard to find, and I've found several alternatives.

The one narrower one by the fuel gauge seems to work as a 74, but it would need to be brighter than a standard 74. It appears that there's another one of those as the low fuel light. It looks like something closer to a standard 74 for the odometer backlight.

Then the panel lights, those twist-lock lamps are a major pain. I even tried the dealer, and was told that they'd have to order them in, and they cost about $8 each. Ugh.

I'll probably go scavenge at the wrecker, and hope that I find some that work.

If there's a good source for LEDs, I'll do that.

Ended up buying 6k temp LED bulbs anyway, and they actually look like 5K which is what I wanted. Not sure how, I removed all the filters from the CC unit.
