NARVA sell pre made LED twist in globes to suit EF/L dash (not sure if eb/d/au r the same or not?)

Part numbers - 47904 - Blue
47894 - Red

They just clip straight in like a normal globe, easy as!
Got mine from sprint, had to order in though as they r not stock items.

Perfect brightness.
Only the climate control is different, i bought two high output blue 10mm wedge LED's for this, different brand, they came in a pack of 2 for 20 bucks. still just clip straight in like the originals.


This sounds much simpler, how many do I need to do the dash in my EL fairmont?

I assume the climate control ones are the same as park light LEDs?

Ive seen my dads friend short between the two poles on a starter motor with his metal banded watch. Fused the thing together, had to hacksaw it off. Got hot too apparenty :twisted:

Also have a few drill bits that are all charred, and in more than one piece from drilling into a fuse panel and finding 12v behind :D I wasnt the one holding the drill but :roll:

We just did my mates EL GLi and my EF Futura and are the same amount. Ultimately you need 6. 2 on the edges, 2 up the top and 2 in the center just below halfway.

We we did to my EF is made the temp gauge, speedo, tacho and fuel gauge blue and the lights still on warning, economy light and crusie control light red using a combination of LED globes (obviously blue for the main ones and red ones for the others).

Damn it looks good! Unique to. Might post pics if anyone wants to see.
