    the hardest to change were the ones inside the face of the stereo, took approx a hour to do that since there was 4 lil pins to release the solder on to get to the lights.

    Does your gauge cluster dim with the rest of the lights? I put one in a WRX and it doesnt, just wondering if it's even supposed to. Yours looks pretty bright.

    The hardwork paid off...

    Hey Andy-

    I am glad you like. I was wondering how our handi-work turned out. Do you have any pics with the radio on? I wanted to see how the lcd looked, after all of the effort to get in there and change the bulb condoms.

    Qoncept-

    I installed a '04 gauge cluster in my '02 WRX. You need the little adjustment knob that sets the shift light to change the brightness. The '04 cluster isn't controlled by the adjustment on the stalk that handles all of the other lights, when it is installed in an '02 .

    As I recall, you turn the knob left and the word "ILLUM" and a number between "1-5" will appear below it. Turn the knob again and you can either increase or decrease the brightness and the "ILLUM" number.

    -Brian

    How do you get the LCD screens on the radio and dash to turn red. also, has anyone figured out how to change the clock colors. I tried to figure out how to take to stock boost gauge apart and had no clue, how can you get that apart to change the condom/bulbs?
