I made the LED swap. I am not that impressed with the gauge overlay from nightwerks. i ordered another overlay from ledmod.com today.
It really is not hard. The soldering is very simple. I am far from an expert and it was not difficult at all. 25 watt iron is really all you need. Hot iron and just pry each light up on each side one at a time. I put blue on each of the LCD areas and white everywhere else. The hardest thing for me was putting the gauge needles back. I still haven't got them right.How hard of a job is this? I realllllllly want mine blue, but I don't want to mess anything up. I'm debating taking it somewhere.
Correct me if I'm wrong... the nightwerks overlays are inkjet printed images on paper that lay on top of your gauge cluster background while the ledmod are printed on plastic and replace your stock gauge background.
What color did you do the digital displays in? I am considering doing white digital displays with the amber analogs, and would love to see an example before I commit.the price for the quality overlay is largely why i left my analogs orange. just too much for me. good job guys!
Good deal! Looking forward to seeing the results!I really like what Sean is doing at LEDmod.com. We have worked on both the gauge and climate control overlays and I really like what we have come up with. I am going to change out a few of the LEDs to make things a bit unique. Should look pretty good when I am done.
If you are planning a summer vacation to Central or Southern Florida let me know. I can do it for you.If I can get someone to either do or help me with mine, I'll install white behind the round ones and leave the digital ones as is. Then, I can change the color by film on the back of the faces. That's a much simpler long-term solution.
i have a set of the custom xB gauges on fancy paper and like them, but really want to make the faces green, red needles, and orange digital numbers. My faces are the "vintage" looking ones, which I like the glowing faces, as it's a neat mix of "vintage"/retro and modern.

I think that looks really nice. I hadn't thought about doing two tone until I happened to notice that the stock radio is all orange except the digital display, which is white. I guess the gauges will match soon.heres a pic of mine...i wonder if it's possible to remove the orange printing
