    You need light bulbs for your switches?
    Dont want to pay ridiculous prices just to do it again when they burn out in a few months??

    I found leds that are 12v and plug right in for pennies.
    I dont want to spam so I'm not linking it but I'm sure you can find them if your interested.

    Just be quick testing the polarity.
    The led's will only work 1 way and its trial and error to figure it out.

    I paid 87 cents for 10 with free shipping.
    RF parts are out of stock on those bulbs.
    Now I'll never have to replace them again.

    goldeneagleradios has the glass bulbs for $2 each plus $32 to ship them to Canada...lol forget that.

    Yo 357: Thanks for the web site address's. Greatly appreciated. I am building a really neat Oh Keen Oh Instrument cluster for my truck, with all the regular gauges, and a altimeter, Compass, Out/In Temp, Clock, air speed indicator, and more.
    Thanks again
