what I'm workin on... Holy Hot Spots Batman!

this is the instrument cluster and hvac before and after the LED conversion. I like the LEDs white way better than the incandescent orange-ish glow but the instrument cluster lights are dimmer than Id like. I'm going to black out the KPH red portion so I'm not too worried about the hot spots. has anyone found nice n bright 74 LEDs and Does anyone know if the 01 gauge needles will fit on the 04 cluster?? Thanks Yall

I know... I should have listened the first time.. I'll have to take you up on that!
How many general illumination bulbs are there? I think it's 4. The Hbeam, turn indicators, and whatever the other 3 are below the Hbeam are plenty bright. What will 4 74s run me??
