In the tail lights, was there a reason you didn't use red LEDs in the appropriate locations?

I see that you used the amber for the turn signal, but it appears you used white elsewhere.

I went by what I had read in another thread. I really don't think it makes that big of difference if you used colored or all white bulbs. I did read that in the dash the person used blue led for the high beam and it was not as vivid as just using the white bulb lighting the blue indicator, so he switched back to white.

Went to install led in the temp control unit and came to find out that half of the fiber optics strands were broken. Fortunately I had some left over fiber optics from years ago when making some special effects. The stock optics use 10 plus strands, so they can bend and move with the slide switch. I used one large and several small fibers to do the same thing. I think having the larger fiber helps with the brightness.

Installed the leds from super bright. Just so I donít get the questioned asked......yes you can just use all white bulbs. I choose to go with the colored bulbs per indicator as others have done. The led twist housing terminals are slightly wider than stock. I bent the upper prongs down a little and pushed the bottom up slightly and they fit great. I have some other bulbs coming from autolumination that fit directly into the stock bulb holder. I will try them to see if there is a difference in light, if no difference, I will use the super bright leds.

It was recommended changing the speedo gear while I have the instrument cluster apart.
Installed new speedo gear that I got from Roger at (928sRus). The gear change was very straight forward using the thread by Dwayne

Since I had the instrument cluster apart, I ordered SS bezel piece for the gauges from ferreus.com. The bezel needs to be bent a little to contour the cluster. It is held on by cutting slivers of high strength two side thin tape. I decided to also repaint the plastic housing face with Matt black paint and polished the inside of the plastic lens.

Doing as many things as I can find while waiting for car to come back. I notched the back side of the front aluminum bumper for the air cleaner. I just welded a stiffener in and can check off the list.

Stopped by body shop and there is progress, even though it is slow. There were some delays due to personnel, but things seemed to be back in track.

I may have missed it, but have you sold the factory transmission, clutch, belhousing etc., or are you hanging on to it? If you are interested, I would love to have your original set up. Give me a call if you are.. 702-624-9118 or email: Kerry.karvonen@outlook.com

Thanks, Kerry

Very nice thread, just noticed this one and followed through all the pages. You've done a great job so far!! I may have missed but how are you planning on passing smog with all of the modified parts other than factory? I was going with a LS motor in my Jeep and had some major push back from he referee's in my area about what had to be and what couldn't changed, including the intake all the way to the filter and nothing until after the cats. I love it, just curious on that piece.

Thank you and I can't wait to see finished product.

Purchased new plastic door thresholds and light strips. I bought both a white and blue light strip, I chose to go with the blue.
I deleted the door jamb curtesy light, so I will use the wiring/switch for the threshold lighting.
