    Default Gauge cluster LED's How many bulbs/what type ?? Please help

    Well it seems asthough one or more of my dashlights have either burnt out or stopped working so parts of my speedo are very dark at night. I have a 92 sonoma and was wondering what type of lights I need, and how easy/hard is it to get to them to change? Also I was thinking of switching to LED's due to having to replace them anyways and might as go for a [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]upgrade[/COLOR][/COLOR] while im at it. Any help? On where I could order the lights etc. Thanks in advance.

    I don't have any experience with installing LED lights in my dash, but I did swap out the stock clear bulbs for some blue bulbs. It was a bad idea. Blue on a black background doesn't show up. It was almost as dark as no dash lights at all. So, consider that and maybe test out one or two blue LED bulbs that are easy to get to before you commit yourself to doing them all.

    I should have updated, I finished this mod and it turned out well, I used low end LED's so I'm sure they could be brighter, but they get the job done.
