So I have the white gauges from autozone. They are cheapies yes, but they work great and are cheap (price wise). The only bad thing is that the damn bulbs keep burning out. I have not been able to find an LED that will fit in the socket, I guess they just dont make them. They are like an 1156 bulb but very tiny. Any how, I got 100 LEDs and soldered it up into the bulb socket, should look pretty good when I am done!
Im going to run the dremel on the outside there to clean up to solder. Im not very good with solder, but a welder now, Im on it! lol
and yes, I have the right resistor for 12v, the 9v was just to make sure it was working as I put it together.
