I like the headlights, how'd you do them?

So what bulbs did you get? Yours seem to have some really bright spots. Also, do they dim?

I already have my plans for this conversion as well as the bulbs I'll use. I'm just curious.

Did you use LEDs? http://superbrightleds.com/ have wide angle LEDs, those might not give you so many hot spots

Yeah I had the same problem when I did mine with the hot spots.

The corner lights look awesome though, are those UV leds or just a normal bulb under them? I have 4 high intensity UV leds in each of my H4 headlight casings to work as city lights for when I'm within city limits at night. They work really nicely and the cops don't freak out like all the hondas with blue ones.

i just used blue l.e.d.s(6 little l.e.d.s on each bulb) the reason it looked like that is because i had them as bright as they would go. you can dim them just like stock.

as far as the headlights, those are the "crystal cut" headlights off ebay and i put blue l.e.d.s in what are supposed to be the city light slot but i wired it to my headlights.

the leds in behind the gauges are not good, cuz at some places it more bright then the other side..? or is it just on the pic?

Ryan

the pic makes it look worse than it is...plus i have them es bright as they will go on the dimmer switch so that doesnt help

You could just take the green condoms off the bulbs in the guage cluster to get your white.

^true.. although it wont be as bright as the cool white ones but it would work.

I put white LED's in my dash and I;m really happy with the result. The blue key ring looks awesome though. I might have to do that since my deck lights up blue

They're Green Wedge Style. In the first pic I had them turned all the way up, and dimmed down each pic after. Lats pic is close to factory look.

I attempted doing the LED conversion a few years back. It wasn't bright enough for me, though, so I switched to glow gauges instead.

nicee, is it easy to replace the leds?

i saw an how to about replacing the leds and it didnt look very hard..

Ryan

just take the gauge cluster out and swap bulbs.....the hardest part is getting it snuck outta there without taking the climate control completely out.

If you have automatic climate control, it's a whole lot easier to get that unit out.

Ryan

And yeah bulbs go right in.
