Default Re: New LED's(Thanks to Shane)

Good news for some members is that I'm going to do a new 2004 cluster for my 2004 with even a better design than my original 2004 setup. I'll be selling the original setup for someone who wants a component built cluster with OEM quality even results.

Here is what she looks like (sorta) It's more vivid in real life (due to my camera)

You may know more about LEDs than me, or maybe my standards on what is "even" are higher.
The ranger clusters are as big a pain as the lexus clusters like these: http://lextech.org/gallery/index.php

I'm not to sure.

I do sure prefer working on 2004 and newer clusters compared to 2003 and older.

I Haven't seen the 2k4+, I know the 95 to 01 depended on you being able to fire light through the cluster in every direction thanks to the entry points where the light came in from the bulb.

Which photo are you referring too? The only blue cluster I see on this page is mine, and you don't get results like that with plugin replacement bulbs. I have 20 360 degree LEDs on it.

Bright and Even are different things.

Did you remove the dungeon green film?

Mine is so old, I did it probably 2 years ago. I can do a much better job with the SMD's compared to just using components.
