Changing the instrument cluster lights?

Has anyone done this? What is the bulb size and about how many? My cluster has no tachometer if that matters. I hope to get white leds. Thanks

i would also like to do this, either white or red led. i know you have to scrape off all the green paint from the backside of the cluster, which is very time consuming.

I tore 2 apart to build one for my car, I cant remember how many but there just typical peanut tag bulbs i think the number is 194 for them, ive never put leds in them but a buddy of mine did this on his grand am GT and yes you do have to scrape the green paint just have to have patience.
