Dash LED conversion

Well....I saw a video on YouTube on swapping the factory bulbs for LED bulbs in the gauge cluster. So I gave it a shot. I'm happy with how it came out. Not to shabby. Down here in South Florida there's a few roads, especially when I go to the Keys, that are rather dark. So I figure this will brighten things up a bit.

Nice improvement. I switched out my back up bulbs for LED's , big difference , took about ten minuets to do both, and the cost was under $15.00.

Nice! I just finished Plasti Dipping the rear bumper and I'll finish the rest of the plastic trim tomorrow, but LED lights are my next upgrade. Gonna do the reverse lights, brake lights, turn signals and dome/map lights.

Which sets did you go with on eBay for the dash, and for the backups?

I have been thinking seriously of purchasing some black cat gauges with the blue lighting, and custom text options.

Those would look pretty good, especially if you have other mods in the interior.

The stock setup is pretty lackluster!

Oops, so I am guessing it is a moot point, are the bulbs the same?
