Gauge lighting
#1
When I took My gauges out I was originally going to just get led bulbs but I had another idea I thought I'd try. I got some led strips instead.

Here's where I put them.

I'm happy with the brightness, for now. We'll see what it looks like when I start driving

Thanks for looking.

Now that is cool! Respect.
I swapped my bulbs for LEDs but this is a great idea.
Where did you find those LED strips?

That's really cool. Almost looks like you got the bulbs lined up with numbers on the Speedometer.

That would look fantastic with the red stripe around my dash. Where'd you find them?

Thanks guys I got them at superbrightleds.com. I got two 1/2m samples of the NFLS-SS strips. They have six different colors: cool white, warm white, blue, green, red and amber.

I love it Jayson. That looks better than the LED bulbs. I'm thinking Amber.
