Re: DIY LED for ac controls

Nice. It's really that simple. Damn. I thought there was more involved. My only concern is not have LEDs that are bright enough.

I'm going to give this a shot.

Re: DIY LED for ac controls

Are those blue or white?

I just sent a friend of mine a text message and he is going to mail me a shit load of LEDs from the factory where he works.

Re: DIY LED for ac controls

i did the same thing in my jeep and it was partially dim like yours. then some of the leds blew out about 6 months later. i had diboblo fix it for me and it is much better...... he puts extra leds in there so everthing lights up perfectly at night. my leds didnt have the same brightness through every openning, but now they do. just a suggestion.....
