Question for those who have changed LEDs on their gauges:
OK, I just got my new gauges (from RJ Autoworks) and was wondering about changing the headlight indicator from green to blue. I was wondering if it would be really bright (I think I read somewhere that it would be)? Would it maybe be a good idea to dim it down a little? Thanks for any advice smile

If you feel it is too bright, use a black marker on top of the blue LED. That will lower the intensity.

I read the install guide for this mod. I'm wondering do I have to buy a new gauge faceplate to change it from orange to blue? If so where can I buy it? Thanks all

^^^^Excellent, I want mine to look just like that. Did it cost a lot, and what's the difficulty level?? I'm a pretty avid engineer with mods for my car rice thanks for your help

I got the combo with the blk/blue faceplate and blue leds for around $90. To tell you the truth this mod isnt hard at all. It was my first time soldering and it was a success thumbsup

yea RJ's are high but in reality its a great price. I have S7 gauge overlays and they are liek 85. then did RJ leds swap for lcd and needles for an extra 35. So RJ's is a great deal for an awsome looking gauge. Get nice oem look but great colors. thumbsup
