The white gauges are from whitegauges.net...they are vinyl overlays

I changed the keyring to blue as well as the floor shift indicator. These are both type 74 bulbs and can be pulled out of the socket and replaced with LEDs.
You can't see the glovebox but I chose to put in a 3LED white type 74 in there. The vanity lights are also LED now.

before with green and after with blue

These are the switches:

PWR and 2nd are LEDs that can be resoldered with a little work. I chose to make the PWR blue and the 2nd red.
The Defrost is two type B bulbs, one with an amber condom and the other white. These were swapped out for a red and blue LED.
The security light is a single red led...I didn't change this one but it would be simple enough to do.

I will update this for the center diff lock but I assume it is a type B

more switches:

The hazard is a single white type B
The rear heat is a type B with two 3mm LEDs
The antenna up/down is the only odd bulb and it is a type A (8mm vs 9mm)

Cigarette lighter ring:

This is a modified type B bulb removed from the twist socket and soldered into the prongs. I used a blue LED for the ultimate pimp look.

Diode 101....

LEDs are diodes and are sensitive to polarity (they will only work one way unlike the bulbs you are replacing). Check the LEDs before removing them from the circuit boards. A few were marked + or - but were not correct.

Break out your handy meter and set the dial to....

now your 80 looks like a 7-11 in Reno at midnight! :grinpimp:

I used white LEDs for all the indicator lights of the instrument panel and the reds seem washed out. The pink seatbelt light and brake light are a little ghey looking. I may replace these with red LEDs but I haven't tried that yet.

added an extra OE dome for fun with another 48led array.
