He meant 100$ for parts. Since he did it himself it was FREE LABOR. So total was 100. But I think i can get parts for cheaper.

I was thinking about doing the same with my car when I come back from school.

If you guys want a link for cheap LED's.

$0.35 for a 5mm Blue Led.

only reason I spent $100 was because I did a bunch of R&D, it didn't look right the first few times around, and I consider my map lamps, door lamps, dome lamp and all interior bulbs in my $100 as well. Beware of cheap LEDs though. I can get some for $.25 and some others for $.89 but both of those had really crappy light output, anything less than 1500mcd is worthless. and yeah the labor was free, I was just stating how much I would charge someone to do it based on what my work pays me :)

puke green is ugly as shit if you ask me. And because I can??? I already have it planned when my g35 coupe gets in, the yellow instrument cluster leaves some to be desired. It's mostly personal preference. Also LEDs will outlive the regular bulbs 10 fold.

that's if I were to do it, My salary is about the equivelant of about $50 an hour ($2100 a week salary), it took me 10 hours including ripping everything out, soldering, and putting everything back in. If I were to do it I'd charge $500 to make it worth my while. But I WOULDN'T DO IT, I'm an electrical engineer now, haven't installed for 10 years, I tweak on my own car, not others.

sorry hiren, I've been meaning to send you the email back, I didn't get a chance to even touch my car, on top of work I've been having drama at home too. It's beyond rigged, I used hot glue, aluminum tape, and blue LEDs to do the odometer. I'll try my hardest to open my odometer up and take pics, but I've been sleeping at a friends house and he doesn't have a garage or tools so I'm SOL... And I still don't don't have the extra time to rip something apart that's working. The big thing was that I was hammered when I did it, so I'm not positive how I did it lol. I'm a very creative person though.
