Can't Get Enough

I just put in the LED lights tonight, and here's what I learned.
1. The website told me I needed 6 lights, but I actually ended up needing 8. I just replace 2 burnt out ones with new regular ones, and the rest with the LED.
2. I tried LED's for the turn signal lights and it did not work. The system doesn't like them for some reason, so I went with regular bulbs.
3. Changing the bulbs was a real PITA. I ended up having to pull off the dash bezel, and the gauge cluster. To get the cluster out far enough, I had to detach the speedo cable. I had to pull the stereo out to reach behind the gauges to get at it. There was no way I could reach up under the dash to get to the lights.
4. After all was said and done, I closed the garage door and shut off the lights. The gauges are brighter now, but I don't think the LED is any brighter than a standard bulb would be. The LEDs will probably last longer though.
Anyways, sorry for the long post, I just wanted to pass this along to everybody since dash lights are something everybody has.
