New Expo Gauges and LEDs!

I bought a set of Expo gauges from Adam not too long ago, and finally got them in today since I'm out of school this week. I didn't feel like messing with the odometer, so I just swapped out the faces and needles. Getting the needles calibrated was a little aggravating, but I got it done. I ordered some LEDs for the gauges and HVAC, and put those in too. I'll take some more pics tonight, but these things look great in the daytime!

Men, that looks real cool. I have been thinking in paint some of the interior dash parts... not shure yet about it...

Do you have any pic of your entire dash / door panels??

I went with the WLED-xHP5 for the gauges and 74-xHP3 for the HVAC. The gauges take 6 bulbs and the HVAC takes 2.

Pic from last night. The picture really doesn't do the LEDs justice. They're really bright but they're so much better than before.

Haha yeah it's a little off, but I really don't feel like taking all those panels off just to adjust it right now. I'll probably just wait til I get ready to hook the new aux lights up. I figure since I'm the only one that drives it, as long as I know it's off it'll be ok lol

I need to get a spare cluster to do the led overlay mod in my truck. Been either to busy, or when I am not busy, the weather has been bad or cold here, to go to the junkyard and look for parts.

I love it man. It's one of my favorite mods, I wish I had done it sooner! It's pretty easy to do too. The hardest part is getting the needles right where they need to be, but even that's not too hard to do.

Did my dash the other night. (LEDs) Love them! Now I've got to do the HVAC panel. Might order some to do the small lights on the dash too. (Brake, seat belt, turn signals, ect)
