    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    mine doesnt have bulbs for the needles that i know of. I didnt see anything on the back. I am hoping it is just a white LED so when i strip off the red film on the needle it will just take the color of the blue tint im putting on.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    Nah I didn't touch the needles. My camera is just showing some high saturation in that picture. It was difficult to capture the color and brightness, that's not even the correct hue of blue. In person it's darker.

    I think it works just as Chris (Dokizen) said, just a white LED and comes through a red needle. It looks to me though it's one of those glass cylinders with a strip inside and it lights up through that. Then again I really didn't pay close attention to how it was setup.

    No I have the blue theme going on with my car so I probably better swap the bulbs out for blue LEDs... The only problem is I am having a hell of time finding the thread that talks about it. I know you get them from superbrightleds[dot]com, but I am unsure exactly which LEDs are the ones I need.

    ...back to searching.

    pm'd. make shure you have then in the right direction. once you do, mark them with a sharpie so you dont foreget if you have to move them. they only work on one direction polarity.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    i used B8's. work fine for me.

    as far as Anit-rices, the gauge face itself is red on the back and uses clear bulbs.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    grrrr. that bitch.

    I'm working on it. But the needles have to come off for me to take the "face" of the gauge off. So far, I am unable to get the freakin needles off. I pulled fairly hard on them, but they feel like they are on there damn good. I don't want to break em'. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/mad.gif[/img]

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    Here is the 06' Pontiac Torrent cluster at night. OEM lighting.





    There is no service engine light, like the Vue cluster. Only the "traction control" light. Everything works perfect.

    EDIT: The lighting is not nearly as "pinkish red" as it is in the pictures. The red very rich, like blood red. Really freaking cool. Kind of like driving a BMW. The bottm picture's color is most distorted but you get the "picture" lol.

    Re: Gauge Cluster Swap List

    Loving the Vue cluster and the blue LEDs. Are all the gauges that you listed plug and play? What LEDs do you use to swap out the stock ones for blue ones?

    If you're talking about mine, the LED's I used are WLED-5Bs and require some soldering and tinkering to get it to work. If you're still interested you can see how I did it here --> viewtopic.php?p=511027#p511027

    Read through that post and the subsequent ones to see how I eventually got it right.
