    Easy in theory but when bulb holders are stuck in back of clocks there's not a lot to grab hold of or even prise up, 4 dials done but tacho not playing ball

    Sorted but had to buy new bulb holders,managed to track some down off ebay as usual!
    I went for vintage white led's but in retrospect should have chose bright white.

    Some time ago I placed some pics on the club site regarding alternative instrument lighting. The photo's showed different outcomes of light depending on the bulbs used and the white light was by far the best for being able to read the cars instruments clearly and easily.
    If I can find the link I shall drop it on the thread.

    Replaced mine with white LED's. A huge difference & well worth doing. Found it very easy :)
