    Question Dashboard LED upgrade?

    Does anyone have a link to threads here on replacing dashboard bulbs with LEDs? (The search here is crap).

    Or suggestions of which LEDs and resistors to use?


    Cheers.

    The bulbs in the cluster are just 501 wedge bulbs.
    If your talking about others like switch LEDs, i have done them all. I bought a pack of white LEDs with matching resistors and got them done. If your handy with an iron and have some patience its a fairly easy job. This was 14 years ago so i don't have any info on what i bought, sorry.

    Okay thanks. Do you remember how you matched the brightness? Looking at LEDs and they have varying wattage. I don't want the switches being too bright.
