I didnt swap the globes when i did mine! All i did was put the little blue light condoms on it (light Covers)It turns out blue but isnt as neony as replacing the light with a blue lcd, but it matches the colour of my head unit which is cool :D and i like it

Hi, sorry for the late reply.
I havent had time to look through all the site sections for a while... (Too much work, and moving house at the moment as well)


Anyway the resitor value you need is 560 Ohms

I will have the Blue Dash Light Doco up and running on the site tonight (Sunday), as its halfway converted from the good ol Static Fordmods site format. (Im stripping the docos down in terms of formatting, so as they dont chew up soo much bandwidth when the load)

Cheers
Matti

is it hard to do? i have read the old doco (way too much technical info for my little brain) and it didnt make sense in some parts.

i would love to put the BA XR6 dash in my 94 EF Futura cuz it looks so cool in my mates BA XR6 turbo.

The hardest part with the LED conversion is soldering the LED's in to the bulb holders.....

Perhaps the safest approach is to buy a bulb holder from Ford parts, and an LED with a resistor, and try soldering in in place like the way described in the doco.....

If you can do that, then there are only 5 more LEDs that need to be soldered up, to complete the instrument cluster.

Testing the waters first means that you dont need to pull your car off the road, to pull the dash out, to get to the bulb holders, so solder LEDs up....

It also means that if you screw up a bulb holder trying, then the car is still in 1 peice.

The bulb holders are roughly $3 from Ford parts

Cheers
