When I had the auto in, I had a corresponding coloured LED under each letter. Looked sweet.

Yeah take more pics. I hope peeling away that white stuff isn't a bad thing. But I am interested, they are too dim stock.

Also my auto transmission stalk is very bloody loose at the moment and it's a bit of a worry, what could be the problem there? I mean you can move it all about (forward, left, right, back) just a little too much for it to be normal.

f**k I hate removing it. I remember when I was playing around with dad's and i scraped the s**t out of the bolt. So with mine i raped some bloody rags around my bolt removing implement (whatever that is called) and took it off. And wow, it scraped the s**t out of it too! Wonderful! So now I do have a bright P R N D 3 2 1 display, but a f**k up bolt. f**k!
