Also my new shift knob:

Nah didn't bother to mess with dimmer haha, but yeah I was shooting for the brightest I could get. I got the high power ones, if you wanted dimmer I'd just get the normal ones, they'd work perfectly.

also if someone does purple or red i'd love to see pics :)

damn nice love the knob and boot hella clean. my boot still hasn't come in :( but for the gauge leds all you gotta do is take out the cluster and put the bulbs in the back. it only takes about 10-15 min.

order them from T1.5 LED Twist Lock Lamp Specifications

just select your color. they have a pic of the different colors too. someone said you need 6 but I only used 5. pretty nice cheap mod.

Re: LED Cluster Conversion

also if you have the car manual it has it step by step, if not I think it's also in the online manual you can find in the forums and download.

Can't do this to EL gauges. Trust me, I've tried. It's actually a phosphorus filled tube that illuminates the EL's, not incandescent bulbs. It's like a neon light, but with different gas.

Swap out your EL's for a 92-93 cluster like I did, lol. It's the only option. The fuel/temp are the same, but you need the dash harness as well. It's a harness that plugs in to the left of your clutch and behind your glove box. Comes down behind the tweeter covers through little holes. Took a friend and I about 2 hours to do it right. You also need the 92-93 dimmer (white box next to fuel/temp) because mine made the incandescent cluster go crazy.
