Is it really visible at night? Looks great. I'm thinking of doing the orange overlay(being a tennessee fan).LOL A night pic would be cool. Also did you get the 4 point ba9 bulbs from them?
Yeah, they show up great at night. Don't have any pics, but will take some tonight and post them tomorrow. I did use aftermarket gauges for the ones outside the speedometer. I wanted to go mechanical. I am a freak about things matching so what I ended up doing on the indicator lights for the wipers, headlights and stuff was take them apart, buy some green plastic notebook dividers and cut them to fit and put them in so they would be green too. I don't recall the part #, but I did use their green led light bulbs in the speedometer assembly. Also, someone mentioned the plastic bulb covers in the original speedometer assembly, I have seen some people use too hot a bulb and sort of melt them and then they aren't as bright.
You can use bulb #1895, 3.8 watts, or bulb #1893, 4.6 watts. A #53 bulb is only 2 watts. www.jamstrait.com lists #1895 LED bulbs. They also come in different colors. Their site says that Autozone and Checkers sell these bulbs. My local Autozone can order them, but I don't have a Checkers.
I had purchased LED bulbs to replace the #53's, LED's don't give off heat like a filament bulb does, but the light from the LED's did not match the rest of the lights from the other instruments. So out they came .
Just remember that on led bulbs that illuminate through a colors filter ( blinkers, hi beam indicator, red warning lights) that you need to match the bulb to the color of the filter. Www.superbrightleds.com.
I have a slightly different problem. There seems to be plenty of light behind the face but the face itself seems to have fallen towards the glass leaving me with ok light at the bottom but almost none at the top. As anyone seen this before?
