Hmmm looks like to much work those ones off ebay that and i know stuff all about soldering and resistors and stuff. Does that other bloke that you got yours off casey, does he sell green LED's? Also what type of bulb is used for the low fuel light in the EL clusters?

Cheers

Hey Spider.

I got mine off Pierre :-P but you can get the LEDs in lots of places now. But check out Leds Shop and look at the T5 bulbs (5mm.) There is a white and Yellow version. I can't see green, but if you e-mail them they might have them.

OR take them into an autoparts shop, and show them the pic. They might be able to help :-)[/url]

Though so......

I just don't feel like paying 9 bucks a pop at supercrap auto for only 2 bulbs.

I might contact Monza or whatever the company is called see if there are more cheaper somewhere that or find someone to build those ones off ebay for me. :D

I think 10mm might be too big. the ones I used were T5 flat-tops.

as per the spreadsheet, if you have the black or white globe holders, then yes they come straight out and in.

If you have the blues ones, the globes aren't replacable and you need the whole assy.
