dash cluster color change!

So I had some time today to do my dash:



Did the A/C controls also but can't really see it during the day.




I was going to do the Radio also but I might change the head unit later so I decided not to do it.

They are all SMD Led's that you have to solder on to the circuit board. I've done a crap load of Tacoma's but this was my first Tundra.
I Used 25 for the dash, and and I think 22 for the A/C controls.

I did this on my 05 zx6r that was 9 LEDs. Got a link of where you got the smd's at? I like the white. Did it keep the dimming function. Also does the needle have its own led?

The needles have their own Led's but they don't have to be changed. (I did)
Here's a link for the smd:

Yes! The only thing is the Led's burn really quick when you try and solder them in so you gotta be quick!

Would love to do those blue lights. Would go well with my blue interior lights. As mention before not sure if I can do the job. Probably can just a little scared in doing it. Also where would you get these lights?

It looks more impressive when you change the needles too. This was the dash from MarkyMark's show truck.

One of the best mods I've done. Did it to my last tundra as well. Completed on my new 2012 in the first few weeks of getting it.
