    just as a thought has anyone thought about mix and matching? like my dials, needles, footwells and window switches are blue my indicators are red what if i take out my red blubs behind my indicators and put purple ones in then have the heater control and obc purple aswell so its blue and purple or will that look tacky?

    yeah the heater LCD has orance SMD PLCC2 bulbs and an orange filter. I made a new filter as you can see in my pic and had to replace the 7 orange smd PLCC2's for the ones you sent me that link to. so yes. it probably took about 5-10 minuted for each PLCC2 bulb, you have re remove the old ones, check the polarisation for the newuns then fit them without damaging them, then check you've not melted any of them but using a keyfob battery (1.5v) and some wires on either side of the PLCC2 bulb.

    So you need 4 T10 wedge bulbs for the dash clocks?

    nope just used a soldeing iron and a small flat blade screwdriver to scrape off any excess solder, easy to do when it's still molten.
