Finally got around to doing the cluster LED swap.

Just finished this up tonight. Im not the best solderer so i enlisted the help of my cousin. payed him in beer and pizza. Took about 2 hours from taking the cluster off de-soldering, soldering and putting everything back together, I love how it turned out though. I did all white displays and the main part of the tach white and the last two on the tach were red. Total investment was around $13 + time, beer, and pizza.

HUGE shout out to http://oznium.com, i placed my order on Thursday 1/3/13 around 4:00 p.m. and by 4:25 p.m. they were already shipped out and i had a tracking number. LEDs showed up at my door today (1/5/13) around 3:00 p.m.

Here's a quick picture i got with my phone.

Thanks! It's the plcc-2 led. They're super small and it's the same ones that Honda uses from the factory so it gives you a nice oem look

Is it possible to do the needle a different color while leaving the tach white/red?

Thanks bro. And I think it is but there is no led just for the needle itself. Mine almost looks pink in this picture because the red LEDs are mixing with the white ones. It looks cool when the needle moves because it changes colors almost from white to red.

looks great :)

I think the needle can be changed by painting the flat underside of it the colour you want it to light up.
It's illuminated by the LEDs underneath, so ideal to use white LEDs for the tach, then you could paint the underneath of the needle white or blue etc. Might need a few coats
