Default Installed Some GLOW !

I Placed an order to superbrightleds.com and recieved it 3 days later, here is the result!.....

First I took the Guage cluster Completely Apart....


And Painted EVERYTHING behind the Guages SILVER (Mexi-chrome) so it would reflect the maximum amount and give a more even light spread.


And re-assembled them,


I also purchased these little f*kers, these things are VERY bright as you will see these are only 7 inches long!


After the guages were re-installed they looked like this!






and now for the full interior shot....


Told you those 7 inchers were bright!! LOL




It was Reletively easy to do this little mod and CHEAP I used a 5 way LED that fits into the 194 Bulb socket and these LED's sure make a difference!

Troy.

The wheels I'm running are called Vision wheels and the model is Legend 5 - they have alot of good looking wheels, these cot my eye better than any other wheel that they sell, those wheels are actually ment for ford rangers, the offset is correct and they meet at the fender quite nicely !

Thanks guys,


Troy.

I've been contemplating V8ing something. I've been looking at S10/Sonomas because I have one of those too, but I took a serious look at the Ranger too. Decided I'm just going to do both. Lol but that's a ways down the road when I get working. I'm going to have to get a set of those maybe, or take a look at what else they have to offer.
