OMG ok, people are getting way to confused over nothing. let me lay it our for you from what I've gathered.
SVT Gage's (I own an SVT) are illuminated by an EL-Glow sheet. NOT LED's. the ONLY bulbs you will ever use on an SVT is for the idiot lights. which are still lit up by a film. I'm almost 100%sure they are all white bulbs.
I'm doing the metal monkey gage swap. now, I'm doing it red. I'd need a #74 RED LED correct?
can I go to my hobby store, Eliminator-RC, and get a 12V red LED, and cram it in the same connector? and if I can, do I need a resistor? I need to know this from someone knowledges please. I'm mainly on FJ, but I get email alerts whenever someone replies here. and I'm going to use a razor and 1000grit sandpaper to be rid of the green.
let me know if anythin I said here is incorrect. I'm not being rude, I'm trying to set the record straight, cause I've read this while thread from front to back and icant get a straight answer and people are getting way too off track thinking this tips the tach color and somehow it magically changes the kmph color or somethin stupid.
THIS IS FOR ODOMETER/TRIP ONLY.
