t10's are too big aren't they unless your swapping globe holders and finding a way to get them in?
t5's from jaycar are simple plug and play, $2 or so each, only need 6 to do the basics.
just sand the tip flat and sand to frost, spreads the light a bit better.
mine has one small dark patch at the lower end of speedo, but i can't complain, would love smd leds for better spread though.

I did LED conversion on my AU Dash to Blue. Bought the LEDs on EBay for a $1.00 each. Sent from Hong Kong they have holders on them and all. If anyone interested I will find the name of the eBay store and let you know. 6 Led's required for each dash cluster.

Howdy folks.

After doing some research, I have made a small Excel file that calculates how much a LED conversion will cost, based on how many globes in the dash you are changing.

I've based the Globe holders on Thomson Fords pricing, and the LEDS based on http://www.ledshoponline.com/automotive_leds_wedge_bulb.htm

Its here.

Have fun.


EDIT: Macca has uploaded the Excel chart, he didn't realise he had it saved.

Hi there, I'm new to these forums but have used them to help me do my dash conversion. Ive converted all my lights to blue except for the LCD on the clImate control, it's still a gross orange. I was unable to find any info on converting the LCD screen to blue. Does anyone know how to do it?

awesome so its just as if you are changing a ordinary globe expect there is polarity involved

and then i guess its the same for the cigarette lighter in the center, and my trip computer would be the same , then comes the A/C T10s ? still

thank you so much for putting up with my laziness

well the a/c panel is a dificult one, the are a different style and type of globe again,,they are a screw in type lug with the globe attached..
the cig lighter and ashtray are t5 globes and the trip comp is a t10 wedge like the cluster..
