Thumbs up Whoa

Wow...this was much easier than changing out the lens for a lumilite...and much cheaper since I had an extra 12V blue led. This is a mod that really makes the indiglo instrument cluster complete...Thanks!

Rep coming your way!

Great write up!

:)

when i had my focus i did all my lights blue..looked amazing. Just always be very careful with the cluster..when i removed the needles my calibration was way off, and i had to order a new cluster on ebay and pay some guy 100 bucks to transfer my millage over from the old cluster to the new one.
