another question, does ur dimmer work on them? is that voltage the voltage when dimmer is set to full brightness?


I dont think the dimmer works, i probably messed something up somewhere, yes the 14.2 volts i measured was with dimmer at full brightness, it isnt really that bright, (unless you have night blindness or whatever they call it).

Can someone (voxace) who got their LEDS for cheap get in contact with me, im planning my instrument cluster mod next, and need about 40 blue and 8 red LED's for it ( 2 in each oil/fuel/temp/volt gauge, 8 in each tacho/speedo, and 8 for the front lightning, with red for lighting the red tacho zone, the odometer, and the text under the gauges

Yeh they will, but you may have to play around with how they are mounted, as the place where the normal filament lamps go is too far away for LED's to light it all up properly. they have to be a lot closer
