Now b4 anyone complains this is to seperate the d.i.y. led and resistor mod from the buy pre-made LED and holder mod.

I did the buy it made option

Narva dash globes. part number 47902. I paid $2.30 each at Repco

Bought n put in last night

Ease of job: like changing a lightbulb.... behind a dash. if you can get to the bulbs the rest is easy, except the bulbs are a bit of a tight squeeze with the plastic surround, i used the help of a 8mm spanner as i got fat fingers

Result: i am 80% happy, top left hand side is dull, will investigate later but overall quite speccy

well worth it for the electronically impared!

hope this clears up some things

Maybe you have a dead Led in that corner.

I intend doing this mod myself one day soon, how much did it cost you all up?

Its a good Mod to do. The dullness is a blown bulb.

For a pack of 10 I paid 30 bucks. 6 globes for stnadard cluster, 8 for anythign else.
