Engineers spend alot of time trying to get the fewest bulbs and the flattest output.

If I could do it all over again I would use Ozniums surface mount LEDs. I want to try that product so bad that I'm constantly thinking "gee I should take the cluster out of the 03 (which is my winter beater) and do an LED cluster for it, even better than the 04"

Oh now I know, that site you told me earlier. Well it says you have to solder it. How? If I can do it or be able to how do you do that? And Would I still have to sand the faces and paint it and then solder those LEDs?

Ebay just type in 194 LED or 194 SMD and find a 5 LED bulb they reduce hot-spots by giving wider angle of light disperse throughout the cluster. If you do not want LEDs, you can trying searching for 194 Bulbs Orange and see what you get. Hope this helps and good luck.
