Thank you!
I think it's detail paint for model cars. I went to my local crafts store and just picked out a small jar of light blue and applied it with a small paintbrush. It was pretty easy and turned out great
The color is called "Gl. Blue"

kickinkillin16 Heres mine now

ArthurTJ04 An update on my issues. So everything now works like it should. In order for the hvac to light up cluster must be connected thats where power comes from. I had 2 bulbsthat needed to be turned 180.
05-03-2014 03:20 PM
ArthurTJ04 Thanks for the advice. Ill try that

I May be wrong on the plugged in gauge pod thing. They do route most of the electronics through there so try that before you rotate bulbs. Just saw ur gauges in the other thread, looks good. While it's out you may want to do your needles so you can see them at night.

ArthurTJ04 THANKS I installed the bulbs for the HAVC this morning. no issues, I have my cluster still out because I am doing some things to it. I just walked outside to see the the havc looks like and they are not lighting up. Does it have anything to do with the cluster not being connected?

ArthurTJ04 Is PC74 the bulb for the dash I am looking for correct? I see that there is a high power instrument and a regular whats the difference? which one should I go with?
THanks

BaileysBudda Great write up. Did this with the Blue LEDs and love it!

Mlawrence No. I got one today from the dealer for $5. It's not one piece. The same bulb that fit my gauge panel also fits my sliding HVAC.

Got a picture? The HVAC bulbs are on a base with a Philips screw pattern. The bulb and base are one unit like the pic above. Is that what u mean?

celticsfan God damn it I'm an idiot, so I guess I have (5) of these if someone needs them, $10 shipped.

If you bought the ones in the link they're for the HVAC... the 74 is the bulb for the cluster
