    Hey guys what's up? I've been on TW all day trying to look at different lighting mods people have going on. One thing i haven't come across is an LED dash mod for 1st gens. Let me know if you guys have it, or is even possible. THANKS!

    ROLLLLLLLLTTIIIIIIDE!
    Dude that looks sick. I was probably going to do blue but i definitely like that more than the amber-ish color that is there now. I have my dome light led in now and that was an awesome switch too.
    Did you do the dash yourself?

    Roll Tide indeed!!! But yeah I actually done it 3 times before I found a bulb style that I liked lol!! Def. make sure that you get the 360* bulbs because if you dont 2k and 6k on the tack and 30mph and 90mph will light up brighter than the rest.

    I had a fellow Marine who always said rolltide.. I was like dude wtf does that mean. Needless to say he was from Alabama. haha.
    Anyway, before i get too off topic, was there a site that you used that guided you to access the lights or did you just start hacking at it?

    How much were the lights? Well..... I really dont know lol!! My buddy travis gave me some extras he had. But you will need 4 of them and I think there like $1-$3 apiece on ebay. Just make sure they are the 360° view ones.
