    Blue LED Conversion

    I just converted my interior dash and HVAC controls to blue LEDs. The bulbs are #74 and I got them from superbrightleds.com. They have an inverted tip that makes them disperse light better for a wider beam (think flashlight as opposed to laser). I haven't added any extra bulbs, just replaced the stock bulbs, but the light is pretty spread out.

    I'll find a way to make the fuel/tach needles brighter, but other than that, they came out looking good.

    ya that does look sick. I like the blue. I am trying to stay with a red scheme. I wonder how red would turn out?

    Hey 321wings, do you think there is a way to keep the redline red? (as in project only red light on 6k - 8k using red leds). Or is there a red film where the redline is?
