Upgraded my Gauges!

I ordered the LED's to do this conersion about 10 months ago and just now got around to it. I've only done the LCD for right now. I will do the rest of the gauges another day. I love the way this looks!

Good work!

Just re-solder the board bro. You have to change multiple L.E.D.s on the board. Not hard if you know how to solder.

go to http://www.rjautoworks.com/ledinstall.php
He's the originator of the l.e.d. switch a roo. You can purchase a new gauge face and the package deal here.

http://www.rjautoworks.com. That's all the info. you need to swap out your amber gauge. Just take your time. thumbsup

Just take some paint thinner and alcohol to the current needles to take off the orange paint. Then I used a blue sharpie to color them blue thumbsup

Any other questions??? grin
-I no longer have the ashtray switches but I got them at Pep Boys
-Yes it was very easy to do the needles. The hardest part was getting the speedo right again (it was 5 miles ahead)because I had to take the needles off to do it.
Behind the ac is a 3 in neon tube accompanied by a long strand of neon wire wrapped around in there.

hope that answers all your questions.

If you are really careful you can slide the S7 gauges under the needles, however, the numbers part is actually a piece of plastic that sticks to the gauges that you have to put on BEFORE you put the overlays on. While there is a "outline" of where the numbers go, you probably won't have all the indicators lined up just right (ie Cruise, BRAKE, seatbelt, CEL). I hope you understand what I was saying. here is a pic of my gauges when I just slid them under the needles, as you can see the indicators look weird because they don't completly line up. If you look at my recent pic at the beginning of this post you can see they line up perfect now wink
