    Default About halfway doing my LED conversion

    Just finished a couple more bits of my blue LED conversion on my Signum.

    As I am doing them I am taking pictures and trying to do a guide (They are going in the HOW2 section).

    So far I have done:
    Both rear window switches
    Front and rear roof light switches
    Drivers and passenger window switches
    One stereo control (A was sent a load of faulty LEDs)
    Heater control bit (Need to replace the blue heat LED)
    And the alarm switch.

    Just a few pictures so far

    Lee can the screen on the GSi be colour coded too? Yours looks good so far, trying to work out colours for mine, but if the screen can't be changed then I won't bother.

    Looking at the pics I know its not a GSi, but the screen is near enough the same.

    The screens can be done too just not got that far.

    I had ordered 100 off 0805 size LEDs that came today, The first 3 were ok (Which went into the steering wheel control) but when I tested the others they are all faulty so now waiting for more.

    And I am pretty sure that size LED is whats needed for the CD70 stereo and Display so on hold now till I get more.

    £50 tops and thats inc buying the speedo ones from crazy leds at £10 for the set as I cant get them anywhere on ebay.

    Its the time that goes into it.

    Probably taken me about 3 hours off and on but I can do the soldering at work so its 'free' time
