easy custom guage lighting
So, guys, im to lazy and cheap to spend too much money and effort on something that doeant make me go faster or guarantee a head turn, so rather than replacing leds and guage bezels or indi glow, i had one of thise led sets that has two leds and a clear tube. I took the tubes off so i had two leds and pulled the lip off the instrument panel, the ring you take off first when taking the cluster out and put one led in each if the two holes in the too for screws (as you dont need the screws, the ring snaps in.run the strand behind the cluster and dash and hooked em to my new dome light, and now i have red, green or blue guage lighting. Ten munute set up cost ten bucks.

Looks cool. Any chance of a pic with the gauges lit up to see how it looks? Also, do you know the specific info on the LED's you used (brand, model #, maybe a link where to buy them?)

I'll get you a pic next chance I have, I can't find a link online, but it's basically a strand you plug into your power point, has two clear tubes, if you take the tubes off, each wire will have one led. Hook up as you like. I got emu at Walmart, you can find them at auto stores as well. Good luck and sorry, I couldn't give you anymore info
