    Got my LED's done today thanks to Josh (TacoSunday). They look awesome but the color I choose is just not bright enough.

    Pics to come soon.

    Can't get UV to show up very well on the camera.. Damn it.

    Hey TacoSunday, what color temp for white are you using with these LED's? I'm going to remove the purple but I need to order some white/red/pink and wasn't sure which color temp you choose for Payden's truck.

    Because I have the white gauges most colors seem to suck ass with these white faces. The only two colors that look good are Red and White on the gauges since it has that stupid overlay we saw that seems to dim the brightness a bit.

    So I'm thinking White Gauges (6k color temp) and red needles. The UV indicators and everything else. The UV looks so good, but its just too dim at night. I bet it would look awesome with the black faced gauges.

    The pink is for my wifes Honda F4i gauges.

    Oh ok, but the needles are already red. Or were you going to try them in the gauges?

    I think red gauges and white needles would look awesome, but I have a feeling with that over lay the red is going to come out pink'ish. If that's the case, I'll just rock all pink.

    I'm ordering some red to remove the yellow lights.. I want anything that states "OH SHIT" to be red (other than needles). All my indicators to be purple/uv. Gauges to be white.

    I *think* that's what I'm going to do. I've found that the UV won't go any brighter, however I found much larger UV's that would fit, but i'd have to make some mods to make them fit in the space requirements I have to work with.
