    Re: DIC and A/C orange LED mod swap

    sorry guys it took awhile to get the pics posted, i ran into some problems with my radio mod and then had surgery on my knee so i couldnt get out to the car and get any decent photos...but here is my HVAC screen with the "cool white"



    the picture really does it no justice, it looks way better in person

    How about this one (bright white LED's in the raw):


    You guys can do this one yourself and save some $$$. I might have a procedure if anyone is interested and I will look for it if there is any interest.

    I think it cost me 30 bucks for all 16 LED's (and that could have been shipped) and probably about 4 hours from the time I pulled it until I had it back in the car.

    Hardest part is getting the old LED's off of the board, suckers are surface mount LED's. I figured out a slick way to do it and I think I put it in the procedure.

    I like it. I'd be interested in your procedure and part number for the LED's. Would a dimmer LED make it look less blue?

    You don't need a dimmer, I will get you some better pictures. I took those pictures at night and the flash amplified the color. I will use the SLR and get some better shots of it later (Maybe tomorrow).

    For all the people that requested it I will find the procedure and send it to you. It's a little rough but I'm sure it will be good enough to make the change.

    Found the procedure.

    I was wrong about the cost of the LED's, $0.82. Shipping will cost you half of what the LED's cost!

    LED part number is 475-1138-1-ND
