Thumbs up Cluster LED Info

If you bought the NEO 5 Bulbs from superbrightleds.com even i you get the white ones, they will Look blue, I had to do this to get the White to show through.Click the image to open in full size.
Then I had to remove the BLUE coating with a dremel and a buffing wheel, I did not remove the needles, i just removed the 2 screws on the face and spun the face around to sand the coating off.Careful doing this you can melt them very easily, Just gota get the blue off the numbers where you want white light.

If you mess up your needles and get a new cluster you can take your Mem chip off your old cluster and put it on your new one to save your milage.

AND Yes, All My Gauges still work.
The scratchy ness you see is from the clear cover over the gauges.
The camera just caught it but you cant see it normally.

Re: Cluster LED Info

It looks way better then the Blue color.Just a simple removing of the blue coating on the back of the gauges.
