I tried to do the same with LED's, but LEDs don't have a wide angle of viewing, meaning that light doesn't difuse from all sides like it does with a conventional bulb.
I don't know why you have to be mean about it, I was just stating something that I tried before.
And if you notice in your picture, the light hasn't made it's way down to the AC and Rear Defrost buttons, nor the turn knobs very well.
Light will not be emitted from the side of the bulbs if you have them pointed up. Even the widest of LED lenses will only emit 45 degrees of light from the tip of the dome.
I tried 12 LED's similiar to the kind that you used, and and positioned them every which way in order to get everything lit up.
It was patchy at best. I found that with a bulb, light will even go to the rear defrost and ac button like it did with the shitty stock green lights.
After aligning and positioning all of the LED's I had in there, I found that they would just get repositioned if I had laid a wire in the path of a turning aparatus or that slide that controls the inside/outside air.
See in the picture below?
And I figured out why the middle knob on my setup isn't lighting up very well. It was the same knob that I got with the heater assembly from a junk yard, and I was forced to use it due to the fact that I lost my stock/clean knob.
BTW, we are all on the same side here, no need to bash me.
