What? lol I'm going to paint it bc the +02 dash is a POS. I want to get rid of the sticky/melting syndrome. I hope that answers your question

Lol he gets a pass though, since he seems to have an AR too

I'm doing a combination of white and red bro. Should turn out pretty well, I'm just not looking forward to removing the dash.

Nice, let us know whose LED's you're going to use because I'm looking to re-do mine, I used autolumination but there're really poor on light output. I kinda have an idea of how I'm going to set them up.

I already have my LEDs from autolumination. Man, I really hope the light output isn't as bad as you say it is lol All I need is the SEM paint for my dash, and a couple of days off work

Here is when I first installed them

As today, this is where I hate it the most, you can barely see the climate control symbols...

I want LEDs that are as bright as the lights in my HU

The cluster LEDs looks pretty good. Which type B bulbs are you using for the climate control?

Nice, I want to get some SEM paint for my dashboard as well, it's starting to show signs of the sticky dash.

Yeah the cluster came out ok, but still not as bright as I wanted. I don't remember man, let me see if I can find the receipt in my email to see what type of bulbs I used, I think I used #194 with 5 LEDs, and the rest I don't remember but I'll get you back on that later.

I might head to O'reilly auto parts tonight or tmw since they carry SEM products. Hopefully they have it!

Okay cool! I got some single SMT type B bulbs and the dual SMT type B, so I'll have to try both out. I hope the light output is better with the dual LED

Yeah I think I'd have to order them online. I kinda just want to use black exterior car paint with metal flake, and then do clear on top. So that it's contrasting black on black colors.

Well I want to do it soon, but I'm not planning on doing it soon lol.

I also want to get a dash kit, and those come out really shiny and glossy with the lamination, so I kinda want more the dash to match that finish to help tie it all together. And I'd have to paint it before sticking on the dash kit.
