I was just looking on ebay to pass some time and i found kits to change the cluster lights to blue. i was going to do this with the Technical Document. but with a kit i have less work :) i was wanting to know if the kits are any good or should i just use the Technical Doc to be safe?

This is a kit on ebay:

narva do a straight swap led- only couple bucks each or so. repco can get them easy. i made my own but the prefab ones are much more reliable. i changed to them before too long.

They're only $3 or so each on ebay, also, there appears to be multiple LEDs for the one socket? But I could be mistaken the pic isn't that clear...

Hmm it does look like multiple leds judging by the pic, i'd assume it would give better light coverage and reduce dark spots if that is the case?

I bought a set of them off him the other day. I will let you know how they go once I change them over.
Any ideas on how I can change the readouts on the odometer , climate control, trip computer ect to red?

I bought a set of identical LEDs from ricebarn a while back.
Multi LED seems to make no difference to dark spots as they all point in the same direction. I tried frosting a couple of others that I bought and even that didn't make much difference. Still look bloody good and all gauges are readable though.

If they're only $3 I'd grab them, I paid $12/pr for what I've got.
