I haven't dove into my dashboards yet, did you need just 4 bulbs?

Wondering, did you remove the tinted bulb dome covers in the instrument panel, or did you leave them in?

i removed the blue covers



if you change 1 bulb back to incandescent you'll regain your dimming function
i'm going to splice in a t-10 bulb into the heater control socket and try that
i tryed to splice in a t-10 bulb and it did not help the dimming prob.

Thanks, I just ordered some based on the pictures you posted. I've already got blue LEDs in the instrument cluster, but they must be early models because they are still quite dim even with all the blue dome covers removed.
