LED's In Rear Defog & AC Buttons

Replaced the rear defog LED with a red LED & replaced the AC LED with a super blue LED. Looks pretty good tell me what you think.

Right here... Super Bright Leds
I got a bunch from there. Pretty cheap. Those were less than a buck each but others can run like $1.50 each.

Not too easy to install just because you have to remove the entire AC board. After you remove the AC board you will have to desolder the old flat looking LED'S, solder the new ones in, then cut away a bit at the black plastic piece that goes on top of the AC board so the new LED's will fit. (the new LED's will be round, not flat). Also they have a polarity(positive & negative). I did this whole mod on my lunchbreak at work...30 mins. But then again I knew exactly how to remove the AC board & have a LED polarity tester there...you will need a very small phillips screwdriver to remove 2 screws underneath(those were a bitch). I took pics on how to remove the AC board when I was changing the illumination bulbs to red LED's.(The AC board has a total of 4 lights-2 bulbs with condoms & 2 LED's). I noticed the white & yellow LED's on the board...then a light turned on in my head!!! The very first time I had a hard time removing the AC board. Actually had to buy a replacement from Toyota. It has 2 connectors. One behind & one to the side.

No...just look for the LED's in the color you want from the above URL I posted. They will be rounded on top & have 2 leads coming down. The leads will be about an inch long. Not easy to find flat LED's like the originals, that's why you will have to cut the black plastic piece that goes over the AC board.

Actually, I think I've changed all the bulbs in the entire car except the glove compartment because I want good lighting in there. By far the changing of the bulbs to LED's has been my favorite mod! It's challenging. I like challenges. I guess it's not really as easy as I make it sound. I have a soldering iron at home & all the tools needed. Everything from turn signal,gauge,fuel,temp,high beam,EQ/Xover,all console illumination,defog & AC button,power window,dome & all exterior bulbs have been modified. I just got some LED's from my boy Johnny a couple of days ago to illuminate the rear License Plate but haven't put them in yet.

Man it's really not easy for me to put the part numbers right now. What I wanna do is post pics of my leds all together(I will remove them from my car) & tell you what's what. Like I said it wasn't easy because me & my boy actually had to modify some of the bulbs(the AC illumination sockets come with bulbs that are permanent. We actually found a way to remove those & replace them with LED's in the color we want). Like I said above it was a challenge.

"46 SMD size 1206 LEDs (pick your own color)"
SMT LED part source (can find them from Digi-Key) www.digikey.com
Amber as seen in first photo at top. A bit too red #160-1185-1-ND
Red #160-1186-1-ND
Red/orange #160-1187-1-ND
Green #160-1188-1-ND (same as stock LEDs)
Yellow #160-1189-1-ND (best match for color with speedo)

Thx. I appreciate it. I got the Gauge from the ECelica store. I'm currently trying to find ways to make the AC section light up better. I got a couple of ideas marinating right now. If I could only find a way to change the color of the clock...hmmm...
Those pics didn't look too good, I'll post some new ones when I get the actual buttons to light up better.
BTW they are APC & I think I paid like $65 or something.
