Sorry for the bad pics...think the camera is finally taking a dump.. :mad:

Cathodes under dash, and seats... LED's in air vents, A/C controls, and door handles...engine compartment cathodes soon to come...

From either of the front seats, none of the actual lights are visible, so there's NO interference with driving!! Also, the cathodes are on thier own switch, while the LED's come on with the driving lights.

I'm dying to change the Speedo, but I'm having a conflict of interest with that thing called a warranty... :(

All done by me. :)

Looks good!

Welcome to the blue light club!

BTW, what setup did you use for the handles?
Been wanting to do that one for awhile. ;)

A/C vents...........remove center console, drill a small hole in each a/c tube, (hole is only for the wire to exit the tube)....install LED, mounted inside the tube with velcro, connect wiring, replace center console..

Outer vents.....Remove speaker covers, follow above instructions, replace speaker covers.!! LOL Pretty simple



Door handles....I found these on ebay, for around 12.00 shipped for 4. Inside the blue "box" is a resistor...Perfect for mounting with velcro. Removed the inside of the door, lift handle and feed wires thru a small opening under the handle. Mine are wired into the power wires for the windows, so when the car is on, they are on.

Hope this helped!!!

So I was at my friends house last week, explaining my issues with the LED's in the gauge cluster.. Instead of changing the lights...we came up with this...
It's still a prototype...but MAD props to my friend Christy(Sativa) for coming up with this!!!!


Thats hot!:D

thats pretty friggin sweet. Is it pretty easy to change out all the LEDs in the dash behind the conrolls and stuff????

Ive been wanting to do that but dont have the time to pull it all appart and experiment.

Also, i was thinking of doing the door handle things on the outside too but i wanted to somehow make it so that they turn on when u unlock the doors and then they will fade out or whatever once ur in. IDK how to do that but it would be cool.

Doesnt the dome light do that? like when u hit the unlock it turns on? I dont remember.... hmmm might just have to go outside and check.

Mines an 06.... I dont think the year has anything to do with it, think its just the kind of radio..

Does yours have the MP3, WMA and Ipod capability??

ITs an 06, the CD player has that center consule hook up for the I pod or whatever. I think it says something about MP3 too.

The sales man never mentioned anything about it but they didnt even know what the HP or Weight was so....
