Cluster lights, need your opinion

Hey guys, I thought I would just share my cluster led needle look as I haven't seen them here yet. (Or so I think) Imo it looks better than the red needles and it's easier to read than the orange led. No hate I can read the orange just fine I'd love to know what you guys think about it. anyways here it is.

If you want the LEDs, search up this item number in eBay 301791912111 and it should be the cheapest one that ships from the US. If you choose not to buy the one I referred, you can search up plcc-2 cool white, not warm white.

Yeah red looks nice too but this picture has a faded red that I haven't retouched so it'll look better retouched. And yes the cluster looks really sleek and more modern looking. And before anyone says, it doesn't make it look like a Lexus, they have an uglier white/green blend.

Yeah, it was fairly simple, there are numerous diys out there and if you have a pair of tweezers and a soldering iron, it can be done by an inexperienced person. The easiest way I've found to remove the needles is to twist them counter clockwise while pulling up slightly. I haven't broke any needles doing this. Good luck if you chose to do this
