LOL! Jenni I love that. Crossposting FTW!

Thanks guys for all the positive comments. You never know how something is going to be embraced and it seems as though it was embraced very well. I'll make a how to as soon as I get some free time, probably within the next couple of weeks. Then I'll post it in the interior section.

just as a quick reference as i will being doing this soon, did you make some sort of disconnect from the hvac or whatever, so that the lights can be unplugged?

EDIT: just read your other post

The warm white and pink are pre-wired LEDs from oznium in the 5mm size. The switches are from Oznium also.

ah yes! thanks- answered my question! :rockon:

::edit::
If it's cool white- why's it look blue? did you put a film in with it or is that just the picture? :tardbang:

Cool white LEDs have a blue hint. Its like a 6000k HID bulb versus a white which would be 5000k and a warm white which would be 4300k. Different color temperatures, which is why they appear much more blue than your average white LED placed in the stock cluster with film attached.

HVAC is still the same color, but I have a flip out DVD player, so you can't see them anyways.

I'll definitely be asking a lot of questions come spring. I'll probably order the leds in the next few weeks after Christmas.

Nice, whats needed, I have the basics. It might happen alittle sooner, the led between the speedo and tach starting flickering today. Might just be the fact that my car shakes so much it shook loose. Im probably gonna be snowed it tomorrow, so I'll lock myself in my car and figure it out.

lol make sure you fill the tank up and charge the batter so you don't freeze once your car gets snowed in ;)

Thanks Douglas! There are some things I can't do, and things I need help with. I'm far from perfect, but I love learning and trying things. :)

Mat any luck?

Crystal, I have a question about the cupholder LEDs. When you mounted them did you only drill the hole big enough for the domed tip (no puns plz) to stick through, or did put the whole clear square base of the LED to stick through? I can't tell from your pics. Also, how did you affix them? Just 2 part epoxy? That's what I thought I saw in the pics you had. Thanks!

I've been planning it for a while, but seeing an active thread gave me the motivation to go out and actually buy the parts and devote the time to it. I'll be doing a how-to also. lol

the people spoke, so I figured while I was doing it I may as well help them out and take some pics, and maybe save you from having to rip everything apart to take pics! :lol:

for the record, I am in no way claiming to be a leader here with this or any other trend. Everything we do to our cars is in fact some sort of trend. Be it throwing on a lip kit, or rusted out hoods! so it's popular, who cares? originality is for the birds. :lol:

I don't care who else does it. Everyone who does something is going to have a different twist on how to do it, and eventually the perfect method comes to light. Part of the automotive world :)

Mat, if you need anything, LMK.
