Default LED Turn Signal In Cluster

Ok well I had some prewired green 5mm LEDs left so I decided to pull my cluster out and try seeing how well they would work for lighting up the cluster replacing the bulbs but the result looks crappy since the LEDs don't have a wide angle at that close (LED strips would look a lot better like in addictions DIY) but anyways I thought, how about the signal lights in the cluster, those are green, and I took out the signal indicator bulbs and but the green LED in and holy crap is it bright, I think I'm gonna replace the bulbs with the LEDs and have super bright flashers, they look a lot better than the original dull lit ones.

Here's the photos, one with regular bulbs, and brighter one with LEDs.

Lol, yeah it looks a lot sharper though. But yeah, I just traced the wires to the plugs and I'm just gonna use 2 wire taps to tap into the positive side of each signal and then just glue the LEDs in.

I think I'm going to have to do that when I get around to doing the led cluster thing. Good idea, btw.
