Default LED"* in Dash

Well, got my LED'* installed in my dash. I didn't know that there were 7 lights instead of 4 so I only got the 4 194 bulbs in. I still need 3 PC74'* that I didn't know lit up the dash.. anyway, I got it all done but I"m not sure if I like it or not. It looks good with the car off and looking at it.. but as soon as you turn on the ignition and all the other lights turn on (green) it makes the blue look really out of place and odd. Now, If all interior lights were blue it'd look awesome. I'll give it a day but I might swap the stock lights back in tomorrow. :(

I don't have the electrical know-how. The rest of the lights on the car are LED'* on circuit boards so you'd have to solder on new bulbs. :( I'd have two to do per door (lights that light up door controls and door handle) Headlight **** backlight, Traction control/trip reset buttons, gear selector, each button on the climate control, steering wheel controls, compass on the mirror.

well I think you're going to hate me even more when I tell you I went back to the green. The blue wasn't a bright enough color that it was hard to see the gauges at night. You couldn't just glance at them like you could with the green, you had to look at the gauges at night to see the needle and where it was at. I loved the color don't get me wrong, it just was too dark. Now, the original color I had might have worked out O.K. if I wanted the lighter white/blue color. I put the green back in though and probably won't touch it for quite a while. It takes me close to 2 hours to take the dash apart and change the bulbs each time.

One of you should buy my car for $4,500 then. Then you can have your purdy blue gauges.
