    Default My Smd Conversion

    A big thanks to "Lee Gsi" for the "How2" and to "Marc Vectra sri" for giving me the motivation to actually get off my backside be a man and set about doing the conversion. I opted to go for a blue conversion with blue clocks and red lcd mileage screen. I also went for red smd in the cd tray slots. Here`s a couple of photos but to be honest anyone that has had this done these photos just don`t do it any justice..

    Hardest bit for me was the roof lights. Just be patient and use a low wattage soldering iron. It can test your patience mind.

    There`s a how2 for this. Most of my smd came from ebay. I got the speedo kit and heater kit from "Crazyled" they also sell the other smd and leds that you need.

    I am here ya know lol. my LCD screen will be getting done soon as I got hold of some 4pin leds lol. There summit u missed which I will tell ya on ya...
    heater controls the blue for the temp is dull you need to change it for another blue one as the origianal are dim here is mine




    I still need to so the LCD, steering wheel and roof lights.

    For the leds I bought a bulk on eBay think I got around 200 with some green and red. Didn't bother with crazy leds kits as they are pointless lol put the plcc2 on the sides for Speedo.
