It actually works very nicely. Pics never do anything LED justice. I ran inverted 194's that I soldered to the backside of my panel that took #74 bulbs. Being soldered and having those wires free hanging, it allowed me to aim the LED's for evenly spread light. It actually works BETTER than my 9 5mm led's in mine right now. But remember, inverted LED's SUCK in gauge clusters.
