*update* White LED interior conversion, done (more pics, 56K lol)

Finished last week and finally got pics of it.



New pics don't show the gauges to be as bright, but they are as you can see in the previous and the last pic.











See what I mean....

that would be harder because you would have to rewire in order to use an 03+ on an 01-02 civic.
If you want your hands on an 03+ cluster i got one but its auto.

i think rewireing would be easier than ripping the whole thing apart, pulling out the lights and soldering leds in. so yeah i think re pin a few plugs. lol

Can you elaborate on the 'plug and play' a bit more? The led's plug in on the guage cluster or the control cluster?

If you're just gonna "plug and play" with the LEDs, it's not going to be too incredibly bright. LEDs are more directional than the Bulbs they're replacing. You get a lot nicer, cleaner look when you wire several in series directly below the climate control.

Oh, and CenZ, the '03+ clusters use surface-mount LEDs, if you were thinking about changing them. They're incredibly difficult to work with and change.
