changed pats light to blue

i will be converting all my interior lights to blue so i decided to start with that blinking red light near the hazard switch. took all teh components apart and removed the small red led and hotglued(sorry no soldering iron:() the wires to the 10mm blue led to it. i had to increase the hole in the radio bezel a little to accomodate the larger LED. put it all back together and works/looks fantastic :P

enjoy.

here i dremeled out the hole to accept the larger led:


remove the old red led. solder (or in my case hotglue) the led wires to the existing led location. you don't have to use a 12v resister but my led already had it so i kept it on there. black wire = (+) white wire = (-)


here i dremeled out the side so the wires would fit without cramming them inside






finished:
