    I replaced the OEM light bulbs with red led's, this picture is crappy. I took it with my phone because I couldn't find my camera. I'll get a better one up soon. I will do a write up for this if enough people want to see it.[​IMG]

    Well it's actually really easy on your eyes and doesn't distract your attention. Red and Amber are the best for that, and I can turn down the brightness if I want. It's works the same as with the OEM bulbs. Ive always liked Pontiac because of their red clusters. Now mine looks exactly the same :). I have drill this weekend, so I won't have a chance to do much, but I'll try and do a write up sometime during the beginning of the week.

    Someone on here has a similar write-up, but these definitly turned out better, as compared to just making a different difuser. In for the write-up.

    it would be alot cheaper to do this than get a Type-R cluster though. This cost about $35-$45 depending on which LED's you go with.

    So when are you going to have the write-up done? I'm looking forward to checking it out and maybe even doing it to my car.
