    I finally changed out my led lights on the instrument cluster to white. I couldnt stand the amber anymore. It turned out great.

    People have done the stereo too. I think the original threads are over on TN. I don't think anyone has done the clock or console yet.

    Shouldn't take more than a day or so. If you're good at soldering, the longest part would be pulling everything apart and putting it back together.

    It took about 40 min, the hardest part was taking out the needle, i didnt want to break them. everything else was a breeze. i guess my 3 years of experience soldering circuit boards payed off.

    That looks really nice, but the orange doesn't bother me. In fact I kind of like it.

    The only thing I have to say about it is...I want it done! Done so bad I'd buy you a 12-pack for helping me out. LOL, :) Why can't guys like you be my neighbor. Instead I have a civic in front, a CRV to my left and a Saab to my right. Boring!!! Love the brightness. Good job. Did you break anything? Be honest.
