    maaaaybe =p.... I actually wasn't a huge fan of impulse red until I got one. Now it's growing on me more and more everday. Also the more black I add the better it looks it seems. :p

    I also did a white LED mod to my cluster using the cheapest eBay LEDs I could find. I think they turned out great! I normally run them dimmed, but I took pics of both to show the difference.

    Looks good! What LED's did you use behind the cluster? Just a standard 194 bulb?

    Found the cheapest ones on eBay. Total cost was probably $10 shipped.
    194 LEDs behind the gauges:
    P1010137.jpg
    T4 Neo Wedge behind the temp control. Which didnt really work because the faceplate is painted orange inside. (The middle 10mm ones)

    And 74 LEDs for the shifter, ashtray and glovebox.

    Nice, i just wasnt sure if it was basically a normal 194 bulb with LED's or a special 194, Thanks. The white didnt show through the temp control plate? I scraped a good bit of the orange off the back of mine so they look almost white now, so maybe it will be a little brighter.
