RockyNBullwinkle PM me your email and I'll shoot you mine. We'll converse through that or I could even give you my number so you can call and you don't have to wait for an email reply. It gets a little detailed and I just did mine so I can talk to you better than writing it all down here. If you'd like I can email you the steps. You can call me anytime as I'm an insomniac and have got nothing better to do.

Bulbs look like regular light bulbs from a lamp in your house but smaller.
i've worked with LEDs before adn soldering, its just i dont want to tear apart my interioir to see what i need then reassemble it, buy the LEDs and everything, then tear it apart again then reassemble one more time...tedious work that could be avoided with some much appreciated help :)

but if your replacing bulb with LED's then you need to put a resistor in-line (470 ohm if your using a 3.4 volt LED)
Hope this helps
which are bulbs which are LEDs? Any specifics i should be cautious of before doing the whole conversion

LED Interior Mod question

I've read through the thread to convert all your LEDs to blue, the question I have is, do you have to worry bout resistors? if so anyone got a list of resistors to use?

that thread is way too big and someones sig is huge so loadinga nd scrolling the thread for me is a pain (on a slow comp) so if anyone know if theres a how-to with pics (cause earlier pics on that thread is dead) let me know :) thanks in advance.
