    Hey everyone,

    Can someone suggest a shop/person who can install the LED's into the gauges for me? I'm ok ad soldiering but I'd rather have a pro do it then take a chance of messing up.

    I'm in Chandler.

    I did PM a few people, but I'd rather go local vs. shipping off to someone I don't know. I could do it myself, but I'm pretty new to soldiering still and don't want to risk it.

    My hands shake and that's why I'm a little nervous of doing it. I did them on my Acura and did an 'ok' job. but nothing i'd consider professional work..

    I'm being over cautious with my truck really too. I haven't even had it 7 days yet. :)

    It's really not too bad, but I understand I was nervous too the first time I took a hot soldering iron to my dash board.

    I'm good with a soldering iron, it's just the taking-the-dash-apart-and-getting-it-all-back-together-in-one-piece part that I'm leery about.

    I'd be more than happy to have you teach me or help out. What would you charge for ever LED in the gauges to be replaced? Just send me a PM and we can go from there.. Thanks!
