Nice write-up, Dogg. My light in my climate control cluster just went out. I will give this a try.
Got any advice on LED's for the instrument cluster gage?

Can u still dim it down with the switch or are they on all of the time
Well, I have LED's in my gauge cluster and they dim properly, I would imagine these do too.

Really sweet job on your Civic, I might have to add that one to the toy list! Got a question maybe have already had experience with, since it appears you have also swapped your gauge cluster bulbs too.
I'm updating all of the bulbs in my car, decided to make the switch over to LEDs in everything. I've can't remember how many bulbs are in the gauge cluster behind the tach, speedo, temp & fuel gauges? Had the thing apart a few years ago to dust out behind the bezel lens, but never really paid attention to counting them! They're #74's that twist-lock into the circuit board with sockets.
My car is a '95 Civic LX w/automatic, non-ABS, non-VTEC, 1.5L D15B7 motor. I'm going to use blue LED illumination behind the gauge cluster. I found what I think are some really nice LEDs (not the wanna-be LEDs behind a plastic bubble magnifier lens! - gimme a break!)

I decided on these to use for the blue gauge illumination:
They look like they're quality. Not cheep, but you usually get what u pay for.
