Pics of LED conversion
Just thought I would post a couple pics of my LED conversion, and my new RCCI tach installed. Sorry the dark pics are kind of fuzzy.

WOW. You can actually see how fast you are going at night. I just have to guess. Looks awesome

What part numbers?

I used the bulbs recommended by 71_resurrection in the post a couple-few previous to this one.
Nice job.

WOW! Very nice and a real upgrade safety wise. I am going to do that to mine as well. And if you think the old mustangs are bad I have a 70 superbird that I have to almost use a flashlight to see the dash. Everything works but it is such a dull light it is hard to see. Great thread. Thanks for posting your pictures!

If you ain't afraid (even a little) then you ain't going fast enough!
Looks good, what viewing angle did you use, 32 or 90 degree?

351C 4V cc heads, 10.5 : 1 CR, 290 Herbert cam, Flat top forged pistons, forged connecting rods, Atomic efi,
C6 with Gear Vendor overdrive, 3.89 Tru Trac, Hooker Super Comp with 2 1/2" Pypes Exhaust.        

Some Mod pictures can be seen at:

I believe everything is 90 degree. A small side note: I also installed the turn signal lights and they are not as blinding as some claim. I actually like how clean they look now when blinking. Only down fall: No dimming function, either ON or OFF. And since I did not take blue globes out of clock, it is still a bit dim, but it does not work anyway.
When you took out your old bulbs, were they clear or had they silvered up on the inside?

you got the wrong led if you cannot dim them. the green multi array leds i got are dim-able, you need to remove the blue light filters inside the gauges if you do decide to go LED.

another issue with the multi array is you can get glare from certain arrays on the LED bulb, and or funny reflections of light inside the gauges. i had to black out one led array to stop a really annoying glare issue inside the main instrument cluster, i painted that one array black to remove the issue.
