Nope. Replaced the red LEDs with white and then used transparent blue vinyl on the back of the gauge insert to make anything I didn't want to be white, blue.

I tried doing the head unit and broke it somehow. Be careful with that one

@MemphisR sorry, thought you were talking about the gauge cluster. Not sure what I was smoking when I read it the first time. Lets try this gain:

The HU is actually a Ca-Fa Dashlinq4. The white is stock.

It's an aftermarket head unit.

Hi I had a question... what type of lights am I suppose to order for the BRZ cluster? You said it wasn't too hard so im just trying to see as to if this is actually something that I can do by myself. I either want to change all of mine to white or to blue.

Qustion

Just out of curiousity have you made this very detailed video? I am trying to change mine I already have the pink bought and was wondering if this was made. Thanks

Then after you finish stripping and painting(I painted the bottom flat white, though I did also buy gloss white, and silver) the needles, you insert them back into the casing(take note as the clear plastic of the needles are thin and flex a lot, they might be easy to break). Then put the black cover back over the clear part and eight use the soldering iron the melt the cover to the remaining black tab to keep it closed, or there might be enough of a lip to just snap it back on.

I am thinking about buying another gauge cluster from eBay and making a very detailed video. I didn't this last time because I started working on it last minute and was kinda rushing to get it done.

Edit: I wonder how pink would look... I think purple wouldn't be too bad.

I haven't yet. It got pushed to the back burner and a friend is using my GoPro at the moment. I'll look at doing that here in the coming weeks though. I'll let you know.

Hi I was curious as to if you could help me.. I was doing the ac part of the brz.. and for some reason some lights are working and the others aren't? Is there something I am doing wrong with the soldering? Is there a way to actually burn out the LED light it self is there an issue with having to much solder.
