Icon2 Changed the hvac ***** a little

Since I switched to leds a while ago fi]gured id change the hvac to the same theme add the gauge cluster.

The hvac ***** were green, so I took the little plastic clear lenses out that had a small green film on them and sanded it out. So its clear. Now it matches the cluster. Green with white.

Cluster.


Hvac.

The ingress from super bright leds.com
The cluster is their 5 led, and the hvac uses the three led.

Cluster: WLED-xHP5

HVAC: You could use either the 3 led or the single. I used 3 and it's super bright.
Single: 74-xHP
3 led: 74-xHP3

IIRC, these clusters take 6 bulbs. I know the HVAC takes two. I'm not home right now so I can't check for sure.

Dash is 6 for sure, it makes a huge difference. I've done it to mine and another truck so far.
