nice job mykelefty. i think on a gen4 its easier then a gen3. Well i'm considering either changing the bulbs or getting euro gauges. Both are going to take the same amount of time. But i think i rather do the changing of the bulbs. For everyone who did it to their gen3's anyone have some warnings and tips what to watch out for. How would you rate this project ? I've seen the pictures of rayray's DIY on the FAQ's looks to be very hard for me. Like a 8/10 for me. But i'm going to get help from some buddies. Once getting in there would the bulbs give me any problems?

My main concern is getting it put back together. I've found it on many times that its 10 times easier to remove something then to install it back? Would this be true about the gen3 things.

I dont think the bulbs for the AC stuff for XLE camry are 74, they look way smaller.....i tried to take it out, it was fuckin impossible, but i got the green cap off - anyone know what bulb size those are? on the AUTO controlled climate ac crap that comes in XLE?

Thanks

When changing the bulbs behind the gauges on my Gen 3 Camry, I realized that it has that piece of copper that touches the wires (coming out of the 194 bulb) that carries the electricity. The hyper white bulbs I want to use do not have that - where can i get those copper piece to use or the right bulbs?

are indiglo gauges worth the money...or shud i just use these bulbs to change the colors or the gauges?
thats what i'm debating. gauges= 40 on ebay for the good ones. and changing colors= 10-15 bucks for all the bulbs maybe even less. its the same amount of work. But gauges include wiring.


I'm going to change my bulbs most likely but i would like to see a couple pictures of gen3's which have already done it because i want to see how the color really is. I'm looking at either White, Blue, Purple maybe. Something brighter because I complain about my gauges at night because I can barely see them. Someone with the pictures please post where you got the bulbs from what color excatly.

just wondering at superlumination.com would the "194 5LED Matrix Bulbs " work ?
