@troy, i dont plan on changing my map light or dome light, i want those to stay white.

@kris, wholy shit those bulbs are expensive!
is there that big of a difference between the .79 cent ones and the 2.99 ones? the .79 cent ones have a "wide viewing angle"

I've seen it done before, you can scrap it of or buy a new overlay here http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/appear...hase-11-a.html

then you would still want the white LEDs for the dome, which you stock bulbs are actually a dull yellowish color compared to the LEDs.



also you can go with the cheaper #194's 120deg $0.79 ea, they still work, just not as bright.

BTW you have to pay to play or so I've been told...lol

you can see in the pic with the blue LEDs were it has low spots, and the red ones don't thats really the only difference

You sure that isnt some sort of di-electric grease?

also on the 97-02 Camaros if you use white LEDs the gauges light up a cool blue color.

So you are saying if I get the hyper white LED's it'll look all HID blueish?

I've seen it done on LS1tech before, just search around for it.

I found them. $40 for 8. Look nice though.

I'd want to do my dome light, map lights and license plate light too. Do you know what bulbs those use off hand?

it's all right here

Quote:
Interior:
Gauge Cluster - 5 of the WLEDx5
They come with resistors built in, so they are completely plug and play. To make them distribute light well, you need to grind down the tip of the LEDs until they are flat.

Rear View Mirror - 2 of 4410x9 Festoon LED Bulbs
Direct replacement for stock bulbs. They are a lot easier than trying to rip the mirror apart to fit boards in there.

Dome/Trunk Light/Rear Seat Lights - Fixed Loop Festoon Bulb
These are a direct replacement for the blubs. I made some custom boards that I could make in small amounts for others who are not good w/ soldering. They are a lot cheaper than the festoons. Ill also post up how to make them.

Colored Door Lights - 2 of 74-x or 74-xHP
Either one will work. I went with the HP because they are brighter and they look great.

Shifter Light - 74-x or 74-xHP or 74-xHP3
Either of the first two will work, but do not provide to much light. I would suggest the third to make sure light is distributed evenly.

Glove Light - WLEDx5
I used the WLEDx5, but any of the WLED series will work. This provides great light though so I dont plan to switch.

HVAC - 3 of 74-xHP3
I havent used these, but fbody96rs vouches for them.

TCS/Monsoon/Odometer - Not Available
These need to be soldered into the area. Most LEDs can just use a 470 Ohm 1/4 watt resistor attached to the individual LED. I will post up about doing this as well when I get a chance to make one.

Headlight Switch - NEO3-x
I havent used these either, but fbody96rs vouches that they fit also.
