Needle LED's...where to buy besides Sean
does anyone know where i can find some besides from Sean...cause he uses paypal and my credit card account was closed and that's why my paypal account was on...

a store or somewhere?
and if not, does anyone know what kind of LED's they are?

i was thinking that the Matrix interiors have red lighting...i could probably see if those LED's are the same and get some from toyota? idunno

Red/orange #160-1187-1-ND
Green #160-1188-1-ND (same as stock LEDs)
