    before you get pounded by many
    use the search feature on top of page.
    many threads on the subject.
    use "instrument lights" for subject.
    or dash lights
    or just go through all the threads, your bond to find something.
    oh yea , once you do find something, check out the bottom of the page for similar threads

    you'll soon be in information overload - hahaha

    Custom Led Dashlights/Radio
    Hi, i live in So Cal and i install custom Led's. Instead of re-soldering new Led's on the board i run separate 5mm LED's behind the dash gauge and use a tap splitter from the fuse box so they turn on and off with the truck. The 5mm Led's provide a much brighter and richer color than the stock board led's. I've been able to do Blue, White, Green, Red, and Slow rainbow colors with two led's to light up each individual gauge. Check it out:

    You're quite right. To me, it just that the amber tone is pretty gross (I've never been a fan of any kind of orange) and I think that's the case for a lot of people with these gauges.

    I'd like to go for a true red color with white needles...and hopefully the radio as well. My friends dad's Audi has red instruments and it looks sweet, not this stinky burnt orange

    If you, are anyone else is reading this.... and live in either LA area, Long Beach area, or Temecula area.... GET YOSH2000 to do it.

    It was the first thing I ever did after buying the truck, and still to this day, every time I get in the truck, I love his work!
    My color choice with some of his experienced suggestions, and his engineering expertise...

    Yosh has the skills!

    I think he's just showing off the ability to have all the different colors. I can't lie a white gauge cluster that fades into red would look pretty cool.
