Considering the true color of the overlays from ford are blue, If you bought superbright RED led's then wouldn't you get PURPLE cluster lights?

Just a thought.

Im about to purchase some LED's and do this myself this weekend, anyone on here do this to a 98 GT? Just making sure there is nothing different about the install ( I Doubt it ). Also which "white" did he use, the cool white, or natural white? My guess is cool white. If I do end up doing it I will post some pictures. Thanks for the write up.

I just did it on my 98. It took an hour for all 7 bulbs. Its so easy. A couple of screws for the gauge cluster and to connections to unplug in back. The only minor difficult part there was was having to take the radio out to undo the screw holding the center console piece in. I did it without unpluggung it and only sliding it out as far as I could then popping of the console pece and sliding my skinny hands through were the radio goes to do it. after that a few more screws for the hvac controls pop out the bulbs put the new ones in and bingo. turn on the lights and enjoy. Follow the write up that 97s281 posted on the first page (its really good and easy to follow). ALso get the cool white. It makes a really nice blue.

So does anyone know if the 2000s are the same?

i bought all 7 and it cost 32 bucks. They are $3.94 per bulb for cool white and shipping was $4.40 I really reccommend you do the hvac controls too. I did the gauges one morning before work and later at night when i used my lights ithe gauges looked awesome and then the hvac controls were staring at me with its ugly green lighting until i got up the next morning to do them too. Its not that hard

shots of my dash:





note that i have vinyl white face gauge overlays, and they cut down a lot of the light output. heres a link to them: 1994-1998 Ford Mustang White Face Gauges - whitegauges.net
gauges during the day:


led license plate lights:

those are from: 2 HID 6K WHITE HIGH POWER LICENSE PLATE MAP PARKING LED BULBS 194 168 158
they literally light up both lanes to the left and right sides of my car and a good 10 ft. back (coupled with clear fox body lenses from 50resto)

and of course the original writeup in case anyone missed it:
SN95 LED Gauge Cluster

there be a link to it. I re did the dash, hvac, and shifter tree on my auto, as well as added some ricer lights, but made them not ricer. They go on and off with my car's dome light so they look legit, plus they are outta sight so its all good.
