is there a way to wire in a seperate LED to the needle? cuz ive been wanting to do a blue cluster with white needles or white cluster with blue needles... i know you can do it just by taking out the bulb and replacing it with an lED cuz they light the entire cluster... but i was wondering if theres enough room in there to wire in your own LED

If you are referring to the gauges then you dont have to solder any of them. If its a minature bulb like the clock, climate control, and etc. then there is some soldering involved.

If you are looking for great craftsmanship and also will stand by his work, you should look up Roger aka aznfunkyflip.
