194 wedge base. Make sure you get wide angle otherwise you'll have dim/bright spots. I think there's 4 in that cluster. Might be 3. I've been looking at doing the same.

you dont have to cut out the numbers, you should sand the film away. the cluster uses 3 bulbs. I did this and it looks great.

Sand the entire back or just over the numbers? How long did it take you

Is it 194 or 198 bulb, I've read both now. Irdered 194 red for gas and temp then blue for spedo, hope that's right

194. Sand just the numbers not the entire back.

Finished it, wow thats a bitch to sand. No tach had only 2 lights too, so I had to go red, but will probably get another blue sometime since id like it more.
