    Not done this myself but I'm sure you can get the LED's from other places such as:-

    Rapid Electronics

    Farnell

    i want to go with a bright white and red dash lee otherwise i would have bought them from you mate.

    That is a very good how 2 you put together.

    Just out of interest how easy is this to do, i have got all the things now to do the job and have done soldering/wiring in the past so hope i will be ok.

    The speedo uses 'odd' side leds so I got them from Crazeyleds.


    I solder for a living so for me its not hard at all but its very easy to use too much heat and either kill the led or pull the pad of the board.
