Dash Globe Holders

Hey, Fellas.

Looking to modify my GTS dash lights to RGB LEDs and wanted to know if i can get a new set of globe holders i can modify to suit instead of hacking my old loom up? Dash in question is a HX Gts dash.

Cheers

Usually just get a few blown globes and gut them so you have the bases. You can then get a resister and led in there and not touch the loom or loom globe holders at all. Not sure what the HX globes look like though,(edit: I just googled and saw one, looks the go) get a Shed here and post a globe pic up, that imageshack had a life of its own..

Sorry. Adding the extra wires in and using the globe plug to attach to the dash rear.
I would hack someone else's old loom up and their globe holders...jimmy some old globes up to plug nicely into your own loom without changes. So you need a new/old set of globe holders...Sorry about that.

Narva ba9s globe holder clips in part number 49818. $3 at bursons.

Drilled the white bits in the middle out to 5-5.5mm and they leds sit in there alright.

Removed the little blue lenses on the guage.

Only wired red up to test, but here it is.

Keen to see what controllers your using if your going that way. This is a branded type one so you know what I'm on about... http://www.adafruit.... and they can couple with a microprocessor like atmel/pic.

I started a contract today with boxes of this stuff lined on all the walls. They liked my EH.

Mostly following this sort of idea http://forums.justco...

So I'm going to run a main feed and then tap into the LED Via a resistor, then run each leg back to controller.

Grabbed this one off ebay because it was cheap and had a remote, so i can stash it all up under the dash somewhere. And RF means i shouldn't have to have line of sight.

Indicators are going to bring me unstuck, no idea how I'll keep them the same Colour. maybe by running a separate box? or a dual channel controller?

I think you'll find everyone likes EH's haha

Always be very wary of DOC/word files and just go with PDF as long as you don't run adobe, because of virus.

You didn't post the controller link, they should be silly cheap so you can buy two as they are cheap and can let out smoke. Post a link please. Just a quick guess with the indicators and same colour..just wire up all the colour wires to one colour leg and leave the unwanted colour led legs unconnected?

Sorry,
http://www.ebay.com....

I'll have to get 2 i think, or else i'll get them stuck on on colour and have to take the dash apart to change them. I recon a second controller is the go, wish i had have thought of this a week ago when i ordered it!

Not a perfect fit as a bit of light escape out the back, but no modification was required to the original tacho which was what i was after. i can always put a bit of blu-tac or something at the install stage to stop the backlight
