    I ordered micro LED's from oznium.com and i will be replacing those ugly amber ones with blue led's and those orange needles with cool white ones. I am willing to take pictures and make a how to mod thread if you guys want me to. Yes or No?:cool:

    Did you order white needles? I did mine and there's a very simple way to change the stock needles to white.

    I was just telling my wife that i really dont care for the redish orange color of the gauges, some blue lighting would be cool, YES do a "how to" on this and of course some pics, i already know it will look SICK!

    I have a quick question before I pull the trigger on this mod myself: What size LED's are used on this? On Oznium, I see these:http://www.oznium.com/plcc-2 and they are listed as 3.5X2.8mm but I keep seeing references to 5mm LED's on the toyotanation write-up:confused: What size is correct?

    I'm pretty sure the correct led's are the plcc2's. I'll check when I get home
