finished gauge led conversion

the pics dont do it justice... if your planning on doing this, make sure you have a real nice set of tweezers, the ones i was using just sucked... they were loose and were connected to a pocket knife...

other then that it was really easy (even for me)

i had one extra led, so i changed the color of the symbol (light bulb) that tells you your lights are on, from green to red

here are before and after pictures

I'd like to see white gauges (needles, numbers, the works) on black background, myself smile

I just don't want to try doing it for a while wink
