I really feel like an idiot asking this question, but once upon a time at auto parts stores, they would have a book of light specs on which bulbs you needed for x, y ,z.

I have some dead cluster display bulbs and cant fucking find the type to replace them. God damned internet says some are t3, ebay links show some stupid LED shit is t12.

All I know is they are blade style and auto parts stores don't have a god damned clue.

I need the bulbs for the speedo sweep and tach sweep not the other idiot lights....


I keep comming back to toyotas. Guess it's where I belong!

Might be easier to find a spare cluster to rob them from.

if you enjoy the rad early 2000's i just bought my first civic look at the expense of unnecessary eye strain, red is fine.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

Technically speaking it's a lower energy light and the rods in your eyes (responsible for low light vision) are less sensitive to it, making it better for lighting when night vision is a concern, why the military uses it for cabin illumination at night.

 

I just like black interiors with red lights though, probably from being a subaru tool and wishing I had the cool red sti cluster. Funny how some of your early car obsessions stick with you.

Rick, can you post a picture of your cluster at night? Ive been thinking about doing the LED's but wouldn't mind seeing what they look like first.

Would if I had a picture, but I'm in another state until thanksgiving. With those bulbs I posted it comes out real nice though, good even distribution and whatnot. Not too bright.

Ricky, I know what you mean. I have always been drawn to blue cluster lights after driving a GTI and a Volvo S60R.

Only if you are expecting to jump out into total darkness, and then start shooting at people.........

Aircraft are typicly green.

 

I've driven cars with red dash lights, and hated it. Made me want to vomit, just like red-ish interiors.

Install pointless switches to flip while reciting pre flight checks like your old toyota is a fighter jet.

 

Was going to do green led's but my old ricey desires got me. Also put a strip of electrical tape over the stock auto gear indicator stack while I was in there on marks recommendation, blacked it out nicely.

Coolant - Check

Oil - Check

Spare head gaskets - Check

 

And yes it is, I do one thing with this car, I hunt mustangs.

(and camaros, and chalengers, and 240s, and anything else that stupid enough to take me on)
