I just ordered some ultra violet LED's, as well as some blue LED's. I'll try to post pics when I'm done with each. I also have a couple of other treats planned for when I chop my front fenders.... Just to stay semi-legal. I want to see if the UV LED's will make a white shirt glow at night when I drive.

good luck with it, Oh btw i also threw in two of the same LEDs into the a/c-Heat control knobs and came up with this.. and they are the same bulbs since you wanted to know...

I wonder if i can change the bulbs in my stock cd player since those are the only green ones left.. although i do need a new head unit maybe ill go for one that puts out blue for the blue theme... lol

Why doesn't the right part of the temp slider light up?

Ill be honest I'm not even sure why its not showing in the picture but it does light up, obviously not as bright due to the faact that its dark red... But I see it fine.

Anyone know where to get some orange? My friend's BMW is like that and I like it. I have a Sienna Jeep, so the only ones I was thinking of were maybe the blue, and the white just so its brighter than now. Any pics of the UV?

I would also appreciate a write up of the HVAC controls. especially since I broke a knob and it only blows full blast... gotta go in there anyways.

Orange will be Amber. I'm putting Orange in mine when I get home.

The LEDs are polarity sensitive.

Yes I tried turning the LED 180 in the carrier, not correcting it. Might I have to turn the carrier going into its 'port' as well?

Just got mine today and installed them. Got Super White for the gauges and blue for the center stack. Looks great with my new Sony head unit

The whole center is now blue - and for the Auto shifter, I ran to AutoZone and they had some replacement bulbs that were coated in blue. Not quite the same blue coming from the dash - it's more blue-green, but looks better than it did. I like it a lot.

Also, I lost the dim function, but I usually drive with full brightness anyways.

I did this to my 03' and it looks awesome! Only problem is my HVAC controls are not lit up by the same bulbs, but i was able to replace the single light in my automatic shift column. Any suggestions on the replacing HVAC bulbs lighting the cluster?

You know how your not suppose to have blue or red lights as underglow for your car?
Well, since the blue LEDs are so bright, is it still okay to have them in your gauges without getting the cops mad??

just wondering
