Default led gauges and some snow we got.

HVAC






Driving down I64. pulled out 6 people before i got out of virginia but didn't get pics of that.

Driving down Hwy 17

and i had to keep stopping bc its started to rain ice and my windshield wipers weren't working so great so i got a few pics.

HVAC came out really nice. You have some serious hot spots on the cluster though.

haha hot spots are the spots that are brighter than everywhere else because the LED is right under that spot. not literally a hot area. if you were making a joke then sorry haha

Hot spots are areas of alot of concentrated light. Hot spots, cold spots...bright spots, dim spots. Taking pictures tends to show the hot and cold spots alot better than they do in real life, meaning, in real life, it's very uniform where in pictures it looks like crap. Mine are like that too.

dangit John. Times two what he said. lol.

haha quick question. if you just bust open all the gauges and stuff and replace the bulbs with LED blue bulbs will it do what yalls did? i have an 07 so my gauge cluster might be different (its green currently). do i have to sand off the green or will the blue leds work?
thanks and sorry for jackin the thread
