And if your not near terrorist give your local repco or auto pro dealer a call and they should do for the same price....blister box of 10 is $20 give or take a couple bucks from store to store

From Autobarn I paid 30 for a pack of 10 (blues are more common therefore more wanted therefore more expensive)

If you're local repco has to get them in, they'll charge postage on top.

Ok Done navara blue leds tuesday look sweet but uneven brightness.

My top gauge's & speedo 1/2 as bright as bottom and tacho.

Filed & sanded tops flat no noticeable difference.

Put black niko on top of filed surface not as good.

When filing dome off is it best to leave with file groves or sand 2000 grid smooth.

The reason they may stop working is because the metal contacts from led to plastic cup contach is very weak and when filing/sanding it makes it even weaker.
1 came loose on me when i was filing.

Iam going to try doing my own with a led that will spread better.
Or add extra leds.

Also be careful as if you get 1 led opposite to another as nearly fried my curcuit board.

I suggest when you do it have dash facing down left plug on just enough to make contact, parkers on and just tap leds on contacts to find correct polarity.
When i did mine i put led in and turned and it started to short and discoloured my board and burnt protective coat of the curcuit by the time twisted back out.

Also do 1 at time and make sure the are working before doing next.

If you plug in all then turn parkers on you could possibly burn your car.

I also done my odometer and clock filters at same time using very thin blue document folder plastic and the blue led.

It looks smoother than the coloured paper.
I found the paper to look grainy.
End digits not as bright also.

If the local store doesn't carry them, they'll charge you freight to get them in. Still heaps better the Authbarn which when I asked wanted $10 for 2!. I got my 10-pack from Repco for $20 + $5pp
