u may find some of the LED's won't work as they are polarity sensetive (ie. u'll have to turn them around the other way)
thats about all :P

Obviously, put it back to stock n see its not fuked; if it is; save some dosh n get a new one from ftg, im sure they will help u as u appear to be a regular hehe!!

Other than that i dont know - not much you can f**k up in the led mod; sure you put resistors on propper n all?

did you even try n touch your clock? Smoke came on when u plugged it in or turned it on or turned the headlights on?

Im lost.

Oh dam iv been there :(

Looks like you fried the metal strips on the back of your dash/clock (not sure about clock). If they dont work put check the fuses cause thats prolly the problem. If they work but no lights come on... you burnt the strip. You can get it repaired but for my mates el we just got a new dash. Its a bad mod if you don't know what your doing only experience helps you to prevent these things. Im guessing something like dodgy pins touching each other = smoke = f**ked. Its not looking good for you id say smoke is a big problem the mod usually stuffs up due to dodogy led making.

I found if you make a mistake i.e. dodgy making/putting in causes the problems. The leds have to be around a certain way to work but either way smoke = bad.
