I'd like to share some toughts about LED-ding a GTV.
Firstly I started my Led project on my main instrument cluster.
I installed T10 square LED-s to the original lightbulb position. However I found out that it doesnt lit the pointer arms. This led to me to install 2 led to 1 light bulb position. 1 Led facing the dials, 1 led facing the plastic light wich leads the light up to the dial plate and the pointer.
This way my instruments are much lighter than they were, however my pointer arms are still hollow as sh*t. I reckon that there is a way to change pointer arms to lit ones, but I have no clue where to buy any, or whoever works GTV isntruments to LED-ised one.
My second project was to LED-up the center console. My auxiliary instruments suffered the same fate as the main instruments. Back lit nicely, pointer arms hollow.
NOTE: All instruments use plastic see-through light channeling. This plastic runs the light up to the pointer arms however it is not good enough for me. Idea?
With this done I started to work my climate controls. This time 1 extracted the channeling plastic and Installed 6 LEDs, 2 to each dial so it will disperse evenly, and left the 2 top bulbs, now replaced by LEDs the same place they were. The endresult is fantastic! Will post picture later.
Too bad I can't remove the plastic channeling material from the dials.
Third stage was for me to replace the interior switch LEDs to higher intesinty ones.
The window switches are now glowing nicely, but i will revert back to original because they are very bright and it is kinda disturbing at night.
Side-mirror switch: Don't even bother. The inside of the switch is so stuffed, couldt fit any great LEDs inside. Maybe in the future... Same happened to the roof window switch and the front light adjust switch. These switches use so small LEDs it is utterly impossible to install any bigger ones.
My roof, footwell, under-door bulbs were switched for larger LED bulbs. Now these glow brilliantly. However the glovebox bulb isnt working.
Roof bookviewing bulb is stock. They dont sell reversed polarity bayonet LED yet... Meh.
Trunk boot is also lit by LED.
By the way. Outside. I switched my front standing lights to LED and also my main lights to LEDs too. Will be back with pictures.
I'm accepting any ideas about the glovebox bulb not working, the instrument pointer arms, and the switch lighting too.
