How did you get the lights to be so bright, I did this to my gauges and they are not even close to as bright as yours...

did you get some wide angle led bulbs ? thats what Im using , its good and bright at night , though the redline doesnt show at night , Ill have to get scrape the orange from the back of the cluster. I used the WLED (second from the top after the link), http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-bin/ ... 41&next=50


I used the 90 degree bulbs , and as Ive said its plenty bright , though Im sure you would get better coverage with their 120 degree bulb.

If you would like any pics for reference check out my Garage link under my avatar.

ey sombody just told me that changing these bulbs to L.E.ds

can cause a melt down in the harness basically and end up causing a small fire or a lot of smoke from burning wires in your dash/engine harness

does anybody know if this is true or a lie

should be fine man dont sweat it too much. as long as you are hooked up right you should be ok. if you are really worried throw a fuse in it. (not sure what size to use.. you would have to do some math for that.. lol)
