Default LED Gauge Swap
I had an LED Swap done on my car today. Green and White. Speedometer is Green, steering wheel controls is green, turn signal lights are white, seat belt light, brake light, door open light are all white. HVAC is white. and for shits and giggle my Airbag On / Off lights are blue lol.

The needles were pulled apart best we could and the orange scraped off and green led's put in so they also shine green. I am happy with it. Looks fantastic imo. Thank you to Tilted Audio here in Palm Beach County

The turn signals look suuuper clean.

...I want me some of that, maybe in blue though, haha.

How hard was it to do?

The LED's behind the gauges on the xD are the PLCC2 size.


http://store.garage1217.com/plcc2-le...-smd-wor2.html

The stock cluster LED's are white and the color of the gauge comes from the face itself. I used a blue colored film that Jeremy sells behind my stock speedo to make it blue and put red film behind the tach to change over the Amber that I hate so much.

It was easy, and works for me until I can find the time to make my own custom face.

Yes. In several colors. Just keep looking through his on-line store. He also sells a polarizing film that can reverse the back light of the LCD displays. Lots of fun stuff on his site.

Yeah, peel and stick colored clear film.

You can change the needle colors too by scraping the orange paint off the back of them and then painting the back with the color of your choice. Just don't go too crazy and build up so much that it substantially effects the weight of the needle.

yup I fixed the needles. I was just adjustment issues. Yup the color comes from the face itself. On speedo,KM/H side the is led colored white. So the film is sticky on one side so you just peal and stick.
