Installed gauge face/backlight LEDs - pics coming
I finally got my order for replacing my backlight LEDs with blue ones! I also installed my reverse glow gauge face and wow it made a huge difference! I would recommend it to anyone. I'll post some day and night pics up ASAP. Let me know what you guys think when I do.

And I was suprised how easy it was to install everything!!! thumbsup

I'm glad to hear everyone liked it!!!

I definately like the slanted bars better. I don't know what the criteria is that determines which cars get them though. Sounds like all 00-02 celicas had them and then just the gts celicas had them after that.

Hi,

This is my first post, amazing site, looking forward to fully trawling through it all.

I'm loving this gauge face. Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere in the UK where i can get gauge faces of this quality delivered?

Cheers
