Default LED turn signals in cluster...

LEDs are BRIGHT!!! I didn't think they were this bright on the bench, but when I got the cluster back in and it got dark it was another story. I may have to take them out or dim them somehow.

Sorry for the music. I just forgot to turn it off.

Just used two of the blue prewired LEDs. I drilled a hole through the holder and ran the wire throught the hole. Then folded the wire back around and soldered it to the two terminals on the holder. That way when you put the holder back in, they make contact with the board on the cluster. I really need to take them out and put a small peice of a cotton ball into them to dull them a bit.

EJ, It was just really hard to do it the way that you did, and I am lazy. LOL Seriously, the way you did it was the right way to do it, but this way works to. plus if something goes wrong I have more wire to work with. That was really the only reason I did it that way.
