Hum.. I don't know. Some guy name "thehamer" is selling them for like $50, enough to do the gas/temp and needle. Or I can screw around with the Stereo first. If f#ck it up, I can always go aftermarket. The gauges on the other hand...hum.

Tony: I did it to my lcd dash. Actually, i pic that picture of the OEM leds. The blue ones are SMALLER than those. About a grain of rice or so. It's not very hard to do, you just need a lot of patience and a steady hand!

Eddie,
Where did you buy the LED. I saw some on eBay (from Hamer) for like $50. It includes gas/temp and needle. Maybe we can do a GP on LED?

BTW, how many LED for the gauages?

23 for the gauges fellas, and 44 for the stereo. I have all mine done and they looks sweet as hell, thanks to the HAMMER... You can check him out on TeamCelica.com Like TRONIX said, best prices in town, and what a steal they are...He gives instructions on how to do them and everything, you cant go wrong. I heard he also makes some great jdm Hamburgers as well...

Well the needle depends, I have red LED's and during the day it looks orange still which is normal, but at night when you turn your dash lights on they look blood red, pretty sweet to me. But I guess on the blue you have to take some rubbing alchol to the back of the needle and get the orange paint off of it and then it will light up blue, but to even make it cooler you can by some Testers Transparent blue spray payent for like $3.00 or somthing you can find that at like Meijer, Walmart, pretty much anywhere and Spray paint the back of the needle itself, and it will light up to be a bright blue with the help of the LED as well. Just some advise, if you have any more questions on this, I advise you talk with the HAMMER on TeamCelica.com he can fill in your blanks.
