[QUOTE=iamthejae;1162999]ok i installed my leds in my gauges cuz i got bored. then after i was done with that i went ahead and soldered led's and stuck blue vinyl on the hvac screen.
Does you happen to have a pic of the dash after the cars started? I'm just wondering if those warning lights still stay kinda lit after it startes and they go out. Or if they stay the way they are in the pic half lit from residual light bouncing around from the LEDS? Anyone?

i dont have a pic of the car started, i guess i could take one.
the lights do not stay lit up, i know what you mean about the leds staying kind of lit, but no they go out just as the way they did before (pre-led install).

Great write up
What kind of vinyl did you put in the hvac screen to make it blue?
I did my gauges and hvac controls today
I installed all my gauge and control bulbs the wrong way then i put everything together and it didnt work... had to do it again ... ))
9 bulbs bulbs installed and all were the wrong way. My luck is crap... i thought it was a fuse

the vinyl i used was just purchsed off amazon.com it took me a minute to find it but i just kept searching for something simliar to: transparent blue (or red, or whatever color you what). then i found one that has adhesive on one side so i got it!
yeah the leds in the wrong way suck, i checked mine in the car before putting it all back together. although i didnt fix the gas light and found out the hard way by running out of gas 2 blocks from my house. so i had to walk and get some gas.

awesome write up, i just got a new stereo installed and it lights up blue so right now i'm going to try to do the hvac. when you said you did ur hvac and it looks spotty, is it ugly or is it just that some of the buttons light up differently?
and is there a arrow or something on the boards that show +/- on the hvac or did you have to measure it yourself before you started?
justed want to clear things up before i start, thanks.

thanks bro for giving us more details. I'll try to order the LED's before the holidays and hopefully I'll have time to finish it up before I go on vacation.

So anyone know what to use for P10 window switches and defrost/fog/hazard switches?
Dec 14, 09, 11:21 AM
I did what?
This thread is pure awesome.

i might be doing this soon. i noticed that one of my bulbs is burned out, so if i'm gonna go through the hassle of replacing one, i might as well swap them out for L.E.D.s

i think we need a p11 dedicated section & a p10 led section

I have 5 of the SMT 74x wedges for sale in amber for 20 dollars.

i agree, they are similar but still have enough differences that make it worth it.

just a tip, 02 sport models only uses 2 bulbs for the whole gauges. Unless you wanna change your signal lights and high beam so it makes a total of 5 bulbs only.
Feb 28, 10, 11:15 AM
is that for at or mt models?
Feb 28, 10, 11:47 AM
^^ yup only 2 bulbs for A/T gauges. I don't know about M/T.
Feb 28, 10, 12:03 PM
as mt are pretty rare, idk if we will ever know? who has a 02 5port? Krist?
