    Default Ongoing LED Conversion : Now what colour for the Navi CD70

    Evening all

    I have so far re-LED'd my heater panel, driver and passenger door switches and main light switch.

    The Clocks will be in blue with Red LCD and the steering wheel buttons (full canbus) will be blue also. I have the kits for them. Just waiting on delivery of a new and much better quality soldering iron.

    However im stuck with what to do with my Navi CD70.

    I have mucked around in photoshop (love this program) for variations and now im even more perplexed.

    Can I ask what do you think would fit in best?

    Thank you

    How the interior looks at the moment.



    Examples of what could be done. I haven't taken it apart yet to see what LED's are changable and what lights what so some of these may not be suitable or even possible. Any ideas would be great mind you.

    Hmmm and I thought all blue would be too much. Not so after looking at your pic in the second post. I do like that alot.

    The only difference I can see with mine is your Mileage LCD display is blue (I bought red but still that would go nicely IMO)

    Thanks for your replies matey

    Might I add great how too Thanks!

    Just had a little play in Photoshop with your pic for the mileage display colour.

    I'm not liking the red at all so going to order the blue led's for this instead.

    Decided to not go for all blue but this to match the lines in the display.

    Its a very rough photoshop effort but I must admit im happy with this. Took a while mind you to decide

    Im worse than my missus buying shoes!
