White LED interior conversion

Well I saw a few others on here converted their interior lights to blue and red and it looked amazing so it motivated me to try and tackle the project myself. I was a bit intimidated by it at first but after diving into it, it wasnt as bad as I thought. As i said I dont have that much experience with it so im still working out a few things with it like the 4 wheel drive switch not being as bright as it should be but I figured I would post a pic of what I have done so far. The entire thing cost me like 4 bucks(not counting cluster bulbs), cant be that

Looks great! When I saw the thread where someone did this, I wondered how it would look with white leds. I think I might do this someday.

How did you do the cluster? Doesn't it have a green film? I have a Harley cluster and that's the one thing that keeps me from doing mine.

Looks great. I'm getting sick of the factory green lighting on mine. I've been wanting the white like you had did. Do you have to solder each bulb into place? Do the cruise control buttons just pop out of the stearing wheel?

I gently scrapped mine off with a razor blade, comes off pretty easy and doesn't scratch, as for the bulbs I ordered three sided leds that went in the twist and lock bulb holders for the cluster from superbrightleds.com Hope these pictures help (disregard the 12v packs sitting there those didnt have anything to do with this project)
