    Talking todays wee mod

    anyone on here who knows me will know that i am useless at anything technical or mechanical on cars, sometimes struggle to change headlights lol,

    anyway the bulb behind my fuel gauge blew a few months ago and oddjob sorted me out with leds to replace them, it was actually quite easy to do and i would recommend it to anyone

    before:


    after:



    and my centre console it all matches now ]

    Looks ok dude, i'm not that keen on blue led conversions as you can see where the light is bluer than the rest, will look good once the heater dial is done though.

    I like the centre console, but not keen on the main dials. Prefer it when the milage is lit up in blue, not the entire thing.

    If you admit to knowing sod all about anything mechanical/technical, then you could be my perfect member to ask as that describes me to a tee :d lol.

    What was it like doing the (as its what i like) centre console display blue? Is it a simple plug & play jobby or do you need to get to soldering?

    to make the radio display/clock bit blue its just a case of getting blue leds and taking the orange screen from behind the lcd screen for the clock, i aint changed the heater dials etc as i believe you have to solder them in and i am too stupid for that

    Not to keen on them myself (sorry), It seems prety rare now to see an Astra that hasn't had it done ,So in my eye's they're ones which stand out from the crowd if you see what I mean
