Super bright led lights for the dash

Hi,
I installed the cheap super bright led bulbs for the dash.
While I can't say they are brighter they are defiantly crispier.
I know there are other offerings (forgot the name) but he guy doesn't seem to sell them anymore.

On the other hand I can't get the rpm gauge out, seems like it is touching the steering wheel column, what is the trick here?

Gently push up on the dashboard lip above the gauge. It will flex up just enough!

I used carmagic.us for a set. Not sure if this is where you acquired yours but I am very pleased. Night driving no longer requires squinting to see my gages. $40ish well spent.

Also don't leave the gauge hanging out overnight pushed against the steering wheel or the rubber seal might be permanently stretched.

Ask me how I know.
