Hahaha.. Sorry, I didnt have my camera at the time and then i went straight out for pool and liquid wheat. Pics tonite when I can get 'em in the dark!

& what do you mean "switch mod *'done'* "? we still gotta do our headlight knob (or at least I do, did you find out if your 01 is the painted plastic or just green led?) and take apart the dash to do vents, trip computer and other misc stuff.

yr right tho... the blue color is Definatly hot. its a vivid eerie blue, like its nearing a frequency of light thats not supposed to be visible.
& thanks again for the LED's to let me do mine!

This mod was simple and fun, If anyone else wants to do theirs we should set somethin up :)

We popped the switches outta the door, then pushed the tabs on the switches in to pop them in half, then cut the old led out, then neil soldered new ones in, the reversed the steps and BAM. Hotness.

if you do this make sure to note which way the anode and cathode are oriented in relation to the resistor... LED's unlike lightbulbs only flow electricity in one direction so the polarity has to be right. just study the shape of the little metal pieces imbedded in the plastic of the LED and match that orientation.

an easy way to tell which side of the led is postive it to look inside the LED.

One of the metal leads will look like an Arrow (triangle). It points to the postive end.

OR the positive lead is longer than the negative ;)
