FTW, thanks for the how-to on this one. I have my gauge cluster out on my dining room table right now and may need to do this upgrade !

I've got some pics of the cluster I put together for the '68 GT, I'll try to get them into photobucket and up within a few days.

Why not just buy the LED bulbs that replace the stock ones?

i looked for them first and couldnt find them locally, plus they are pretty expensive.

I couldn't justify that much on light upgrades. That's more then a Weeks salary for my slave labor job lol.

Its close to it for me. I average $150 a week with 23-4 hours of work. What I love is 40 hours a week and $250+ checks

FTW, can you advise where you bought your LEDs ? I was going to check at Home Depot or something, but I would like to get them in green, or in yellow (?) to get the green tint. Thx

you need to get yellow if you keep the blue bulb cover things, or green if you remove them. I bought mine at advanced auto parts in a 4 pack.
