Re: How to: LED gauge install (white like stock, not blue)

I don't think you can do the center console ones because it's not the lights that are green, the plastic that the light shines through is green itself.

Re: How to: LED gauge install (white like stock, not blue)

Thanks OP, I installed mine this weekend! Got the cool blue.

BTW, this is a great chance to grab some plastic polish and remove scratches from the clear plastic gauge cover.

Re: How to: LED gauge install (white like stock, not blue)

Hey guys new to the forum...

I got the Mach 1 gauge cluster for my GT, bought the chrome gauge bezels and painted them silver.

I also got white LED's for the gauge cluster, and a new Innovate boost gauge that matches pretty well I think.












I think my roommate that has an azure mach 1 may do the cool white to match his cobalt gauges

I forgot what site I've seen it on but the center console lights can be done. There was write up somewhere I try and find it and post it...

Re: How to: LED gauge install (white like stock, not blue)

Thanks for the write up. I like how the green matches the rest of the dash. Ordered/shipped and should be here by the weekend.

yeah they are really bright. i love the way they turned out. had to adjust 2 of them to get it all to light up and used needle nose pliers so i didnt have to take the back off of the cluster. the only problem was the bulbs were a PITA to get out.

Did anyone find out which bulbs fit the HVAC system controls? How about a pic of a blue LED install?

Re: How to: LED gauge install (white like stock, not blue)

I'm switching to the blue led soon. Since the cool whites didn't really match with my cobalt gauges.

For the center console you want two WLED-x5 wedge base bulbs. As people have said before the center console has a green tint in the plastic so it won't match perfectly with the gauges, but I went with cool white all around and it looks fine to me. There was a metal ring in there that made one of the bulbs difficult, I ended up bending the contact on the socket so it would work, been working great since.
