Mind sharing part number and source for the led bulbs you used for speedo and temp/fuel? Nice to be able to see them.
Thanks.

Amazon... I'm almost ashamed to admit. But they work great from what I can tell! I might look into amber LEDs to match the tach... but not today.

Your tach install inspired me to buy one for my wagon. Almost done with the install myself.

Nice!

Unrelated... one of the LED bulbs from amazon went wonky and I had to replace it... maybe they weren't the best quality. And I'm still working on an idiot light relocation project... pics of that at some point.

It's too bad Speedhut doesn't offer a green night-time illumination option. At least I couldn't find it on their site...

These LEDs were recommended to me by a trusted source for dash lights (no affiliation to the seller):

By the way, I believe you'll need to keep your ALT lamp incandescent as I've heard LEDs don't play well with the alternator.
