there are six t10 globes for the instrument panel

one t10 and two t5 and a strip LED for the climate control

and one t10 for the clock.

I also changed......

one t10 for the transmission selector
one t5 for the cigarette lighter light

and I am working on the light in the rear demister switch

hey frankieh, have you had any luck sourcing a strip LED, this is the one that is stumping me....... :x

Oh and I tried my flatmates sunnies on, can see the dash much clearer during the day!

So it is a new pair of less effective sunnies for me now LOL

Can anyone suggest a place to buy these LED's. Apparently there are many different sized T10's for different purposes. The T5's seem pretty straight forward. I called into supercheap today and was told to try d**k smith or tandy? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oh, and I've tried ebay but the cheap looking crap from Hong Kong just doesn't do it for me.

What about these one's. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0237481407
I know they are the cheap one's from Hong Kong but for $12.00 and free postage, what have I got to loose? :?

These are the t10's I got from ebay...... expensive but well worth the money. You need to buy 2 lots to convert the NA-NC

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ZPE-Suzuki-Swift ... dZViewItem

and here is the link for the t5's I got..... I used 2 for the climate control and one for the lighter

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Subaru-Impreza-W ... dZViewItem

Both items have worked an absolute treat!

Agreed, but for $12 you get 10 LED's so won't be needing anymore. If they are crap i'll just toss them in the bin :lol:

I bought 10 single big LED ones first for about $13

They are crap, the digital display has a little pin point of light, and I couldnt see the analogue dials at night.

These were the ones, http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0233014394

I bought these:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=140191150324&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=004

so far, so good. the clock looks awesome in blue and these ones give a good spread of light thru the cluster. you can't see much of it in daylight tho. plus the light in the clock doesn't seem to dim as much when you turn on the headlights as the filament globes do.

i also bought some inverted led's for the parkers, which puts a nice blue tint thru the headlight beam.
