Tinted Ea Headlights & Led question

After seeing the tinted headlights for the EA well they arn't Really tinted I decided to try it today. Was fairly easy just took the headlight out and you take the clips off for the glass and the plasic strip between the glass and head light you paint that black. It comes out and gives you bit of a black tinge all the way around the side of the glass. Anyway It was quick easy mod but you can't really notice it but you can notice the difference between them when its painted. I thought id post this just incase it hadn't been posted before.

With the leds iv had to replace two bulbs in my dash but they are way to bright and very annoying. Anyway I wanted to fill the dash full of leds not sure what colour maybe blue but Im thinking white would be best. Im wondering what mcd should i buy like 1,500 , 7000 ? I want it to be bright but not blinding but Id prefer it to be bright then dull.

Another led question would these be bright enough for my brake lights http://ford.i8.com/tmp/jaycar_lighting.jpg
Also in my brake lights (EA) how many bulbs are there to brake.. 1/2?

Re: Tinted Ea Headlights & Led question

Iv gotten led parkers from autobarn was like $10 for two red ones in a bulb holder.. are they bright enough for my dash ? Also would this work out cheap/easier to just buy these rather then make them my self?

Re: Tinted Ea Headlights & Led question

it would be 10 times cheaper to make the LED's with the resistor your self. those ones from autobahn arent very bright. i done this to my dash i used some red 7000 mcd from Jaycar. it still wasnt bright enough probably should have used 2 per bulb holder. Rear demist one worked well. the brake lights have 2 bulbs for the brakes alone on EA. no real point putting LEDs in there youd need way to many to illuminate it.
