Radio LED's

Now that I have my radio backlight working again, I want to change my radio LED's to blue to match my LCD screen on my instrument cluster and the AC console. Do I use the same type of LED's that I used for the instrument cluster, and how many do I need. I looked around, and some places say that I need 46, and some 47.

The number isn't a big deal, but I just need to know if I should order the same size LED's as I did for the instrument cluster. The blue ones are expensive at like $1.75, so I'm not sure if I want to order blue ones or not.

Oh well.

I saw that, but if I buy them from Digi-key.com, then I can save a lot of money.

I guess I'll buy 50 of them just to make sure I have enough, but what size LED's do I need? Same as the other LED's in the instrument cluster?

I tried searching, and on the 3rd page of search results, I fell asleep.

I may be retarded, but I didn't actually see what type of LED's they were.

Are they 1206 LED's?

not sure, they simply state that the GT radio is "a tad different"

- in my case I simply bought an aftermarket deck that lights up blue - wink
