One more question.
The write up says that ignition key bulb is #24 . But when I removed it it looks smaller than those #24 in the main gauge cluster. More like a #74. And maybe #24 is still the best to use there (after sanding the base a little bit)?

Would it be possible to change the middle speedometer to white and keep the rest of the gauge cluster(fuel tach etc) orange/red? Or is it only possible to split it down the middle with two colors?

Yes, it's a #74. Check out my previous posts and you'll find a link to personal pics of my install.

There are a total of 3 #194-type bulbs in the cluster. You can replace as many as you want. The other two in the instruction doc are #24 bulbs. Others have even replaced absolutely every bulb. I chose to keep the stock ones in.

Not using LEDs in this scenerio. Our gauge lighting actually kinda sucks. You would have to fully dissassemble the gauges and use either many compnent LEDs or glow wire - something like that. if you jsut change some of the bulbs, the colors will fade into each other. There won't be any distinct division of the center gauge.

Has anyone tried the 9 LED bulbs now offered by autolumination? I am getting ready to order my bulbs and want to get the most light and widest dispersion that will fit. If mine turn out spotty I will hate them.

Thanks in advance...
