Hello

Here photos of my ex-focus tdci, i changed interior ilumination fron green to blue, if you have question, please ask, i will try help you.

All with smd-leds, but LCD kilometers display i did this:

Here is disassembled interior, testing that all is right:



Disassembled 6006 radio, "no cambiar" = don't change, don't change those leds, they are for anti-theft security :)



And the final result:



Now "crystal-elevators" (how do you name it in english??)

Take care with elecronic contacts


Normal swith disassembled:


Putting 5mm led, blue and higt-luminosity:


I had to do a bigger hole, the led doesn't fit in :(


I changed the original resistor in order to get more luminosity (2k1=Original, 1k= changed)


Driver button, take care too!


Disassembled driver button:


New leds mounted:


Light button disasembled:


Multi-colour :D


Final result:



Regards

very nice looking

and for some reason the blue neons in my car dont bug me at night as much as my green gauges do... i turn them down as low as possible cuz the bright green kills my eyes... and the blue neon relaxes them... wierd

I LOVE this look! Check out late-model VWs, like Jettas, Golfs and Passats since about 1999; also the high-end VW line, Audi. The dashes are lit in a really cool violet/blue with red indicator needles. Looks like you've achieved a similar look here. VW claims in their adverts that this color scheme aids night vision. I question whether that is really true (darkrooms and jet fighter planes use all deep red on black), but I don't give a damn whether their ad copy is bull or not. I just think it looks smashing!

Hi, thanks about it, google doesn't know slan words [:D] (i like to know slang words in order to improve mi english)
Thanks also by the sugerence of windows switches :)
I studied english at school 3 years but i use it almost all days

Where are you from?


In Spanish:
Gracias por la traducción, el google no conoce las palabras de la jerga, me gusta aprender esas palabras para comprender mejor lo que se escribe en el foro.
Estudié 3 años de inglés en la escuela, ahora lo uso casi todos los días y por ello no se me olvida.

De dónde eres?

Saludos / Regards

I understand you, but you have to think that here life's level is lower than in USA :)

Maybe when you stop working at 65 [rolleyes]

mi español aspira probablemente, su nivel de la high school secundaria.

Amo el coche, su hermoso. El trabajo de la iluminación interior es asombroso. Continúe el buen trabajo mi amigo.

¿También, es posible caber los controles automáticos del clima en un foco de Estados Unidos? ¿Si es así podría usted descubrir quizá cuánto cuesta la pieza?
