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
