Hey,
this is a link http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/showthread.php?t=14783
I did it with T10 wedge leds - They are the same size as your parker globes. You can get the LED ones at any auto store now pretty much. Remember the LED's are polar (i.e. they care about positive and neg) so if you put them in and they don't light up, take them out and turn them around.
If you can find brighter ones than the normal ones at auto stores i'd go for them unless ur gonna remove the green film on the back of the dials.
Have fun, hope this helps

cool thanks for the link.

Yeah im looking at doing the lot, all the screens, buttons and the dials. Oh and the Security Light :)

I saw on another thread exactly what size and brightness to use, but i cant remember what it said, and i cant find that thread now.

I got fired not long ago so now i got time to play with, so im gonna try and fix my boot leak and then do this LED mod :)

Hozy used 11,000 mCD 3mm LED's with 510 ohm resistors.
I couldnt find these so i used 10,000 mCD 5mm LED's. i was happy though.

The bonus is if you solder straight to the board for the LCD screens you can still use the dimmer switch ;)
