The only leds I can see that match your description are not designed for the dash. Is this correct and how did you convert them?

yeh easy enuff to do your self dude and even easier if ya buy the repco/narva/pre done LEDs into bulb holders so no soldering/fiddlin with resistors is involved....plenty of instructions and doco on how to do it...doesnt take all that long either...

How do you fit the LEDs are they just plug and go or do you have to wire them up. I've looked at the back of the ED cluster and it looks as if the globes just plug in, I can't see how they make contact with the electrical circuit and light up.

Are the LEDs id need 194 signal/marker bulbs, will they fit straight into the bulb holders or is fiddly soldering needed?

is the process the same as is shown here: http://www.fordmods.com/forums/documents.php?doc=1

All parts from Jarcar. Theres 2 types of blue LED's, a bright 1 and a really bright one. I just used the bright ones but i'd recomend using the really bright ones.

You'll also need resistors which is explained on the technical document i mentioned before and heat shrink, a bit of souldering and there you have it! You can do other colours too if you wish but they need different types of resistors.

I just did mine. Used Inverted LEDs, probably not a good idea. Theres a few darker parts, between 1500-2000rpm on the tacho. But it inly cost $12 for 10 leds in holders. Just pulled em out, twisted the legs n pushed em in.
