WTB LED swap in my guages

I would like to PAY someone to swap LED's into my guage cluster. I attempted to take it apart today and look it over to begin the mod, but decided that I would end up F-ing everything up if I did it myself lol.

If anyone would like to do this, please give me a price! I am located in California, and will pay shipping both ways.

PS, i would only like people who have already done this before (and know what theyre doing!) to do it for me. Thanks.

Personally I don't really think its all that hard. I'm going through doing this myself right now with a 03 gauge cluster. The hardest part I'm thinking is striping the green off the back of your overlays and repainting them with glass paint. Although I haven't gotten around to the LED swap yet due to a screw up on supperbrightleds part(sent me the wrong flex strips). I'm thinking of trying something a bit different and using a combo of component leds(13,000 mcd ones mentioned in the howto, WLED-BHP5 360 degree 194 plugins, and NFLS-B30 SMD led flexible strips.

Basically it just takes a lot of time to get it right.

yeah if anyone could do it he could. Of course depending or not how busy he is though with other projects

I really like his idea of using foil tape and 360 degree leds though.
