OK, here's an idea I liked a lot from VWVortex, a CHEAP MODS THREAD!!! (original inspiration here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...le-Mods-Thread )

Here's how this works:

::::::: Cost:
::::::: Where to buy:

Here's an example

=================================================

::::::: Cost: $45
::::::: Where to buy: FleaBay
::::::: Time required:~1 hour

Those are for 96-98 would you think they might work in a 95 Limited?

Here is a fairly in-depth thread on switching to LED's. They go through changing all bulbs, not just the gauges. There are links to bulbs as well as how to prevent hot spots and get even lighting. In the other thread, most of the gauges are lit up funky and not real usable imo...

Ahhh, I love that format for organizing mods (and basic repairs even). Would take some serious legwork to set it up like the one on vortex (well, it might not for the newer ones). If nothing else, this can be used as a database of links that direct to other threads and posts.
I'll certainly add my little mods to this, first one I suppose will be the clear corners I ordered.
