That looks sweet. How did you do that exactly and what kind of lights did you use?

Re: Dash, Center Concole and Shifter LEDs...done

I've been messin around with LED's on vehicles for 3-4 years now. For my shift selection I went with LED strips from Advanced Auto because the slender profile of the strips fits very well under the shift selection window.

Re: Dash, Center Concole and Shifter LEDs...done

A great place to check out is superbrightleds, you can enter your vehicle year, make and model and it'll show what LEDs you can use if you want to change up your dash and other interior and exterior lights. I used the site to change my dash cluster from stock green to blue.

Ok thanks I'll definitely check that out because yours looks awesome. Is that the same place you went to change the heater stuff to.

Re: Dash, Center Concole and Shifter LEDs...done

For the lighting for the heater controls I went with 2 long and 2 short LED strips from Advanced Auto because the bulbs in mine are soldered on and I didn'tfeel like messing with that. I kept positioning the strips until they lit everything up evenly.

Re: Dash, Center Concole and Shifter LEDs...done

The lights for the dash are plug and play, just make sure if you do those you disconnect the battery and unplug the plugs in the back of the housing so the air bag doesn't pop out on ya or nothin and the LED strips I used for the shift selector and heater area I just wired into the positive and negative wires for the stock shift selector lighting. Hardest part is taking everything apart and putting it all back together, more of a PITA than anything else.
