I thought I remembered one of the supporters of this board having a complete kit tp change our mustang dash lights over to LED. I cannot seem to find his info. Can anyone suggest a good source (including the grounded flashers for the turn signals)? Shop will only have the dash apart for a few days, so I need to source the correct bulbs and get them quickly.
 
I bought these on Amazon for $10.00. They worked fine in my dashboard. Do not use to replace the turn signal dash bulbs.

I appreciate the heads up on the Yorkim bulbs so I bought and installed them. The posts from this site are phenomenal with great minds contributing. Thx, Bill

I'm researching this, and have a few questions.
- Are you using these with the blue diffusers?
- Are these the warm white (slightly yellow, so if using the factory diffusers, they create the blue-green gauge light)
- Does the dimmer work correctly?
- Any sense of quality/longevity?
 
Another vote for the hipoparts kit. Perfect color, dimming works great.

Did you use the original filters or replace them? I see NPD has repops, and mine are pretty cloudy. Still considering my options, so asking more questions...

I bought the NPD ones but didn’t use them as they weren’t as translucent as the pic in the catalogue. I looked thru them outside in the sunlight and my originals seemed to let in more light so I reused them.
I bought the good kit from Hi-po parts and they worked great. The color is spot on and much brighter than before. A big plus with his kit is all the bulbs have the polarity marked. I used them in my dash blinkers with no problems. Just don’t use one for the alternator light if you don’t have a tach dash.
