    Default climate control LED

    sorry i had such a long delay guys. i finished this back in december but been real busy lately. Heres my climate control blue LED swap. all the soldering wasnt too bad i used flat topped LED's for a wider viewing angle but as you can see it aint perfect, im fine with the way it looks in person it aint too bad, but no red in the temperature section. if i have the time ill go in to see what i can do to pop a red LED in there. And on the far right i did throw in a 5th led under the top middle of the directional flow knob, the eventual plan would be to do the same to the other two knobs but until then im in no rush, but heres the pic just so yall can see the product

    I have white led's behind the climate sliders. the orange led's that were in the a/c an the other two buttons are now white.

    Ive been thinking about doing something like this myself. My passenger side climate control bulb went out and was wanting to fix it anyways so...where did you guys find your L.E.D.'s at?

    Thanks,

    hey, nice job brad. that looks real good. that white almost looks blue actually, which is neat in my opinion.

    Yup the site is pretty sweet not gonna lie....i believe ill be ordering a hand full of lights here soon. which did you guys go with 3mm? 5mm? I think Im gonna go with red for the cluster and temp controls. (i just installed power windows and the switches already have red lights in them) and If im thinking correctly the wider the viewing angle the better? up to about 120deg anyways.

    onewheelwonder, i used 5mm in mine, 3mm will also work well. an yes the wider the view angle the better, for light distribution so you limit the dark spots in the faceplate when lit.

    Nice i like the look.

    I know this is an old post but $130 for parts? Ouch LEDs and resistors should not cost you more then $10 for 100pieces of each.

    Also here are some nice LED for wide angles, I used these in my tow mirrors(amber in color though(
