Not a Question, but a comment

So today I recieved my cluster I ordered (w/tach) and started disassembling it, I got the faces and needles off fine but I used a fork to get the part with the odometer out in it and I didnt realize the odometer and other various instruments were in there attached to the plastic... well I had to press down kinda had to pry it with the fork, all of a sudden it popped off went about 8 inches in the air and landed on my lap... thank god. Also I might need some help finding out which sides of the bulbs are positive and a parts list to make the LED swap (LED's and Transistors)...

Needeless to say I wish I could have seen my face when that happened.

haha...i've lost them acrosst the room before. lol. now i only barely press them on....instead of 1/4" on the neetle, i do 1/8".

figuring out whcih side is positive, is very easy. use a test light and turn on your park lights. take the test light to the plugs that plug into the cluster and check the contact points til you find the hot one. Then follow the hot lead on the cluster side to the lamp sockets.
