Wow that is a horrible picture! Sorry about that :( It really doesn't give a very good idea at how well this mod worked out. In reality, that eerie glow doesn't show up to the human eye. The numbers and letters are illuminated perfectly with a bright but very pleasant blue color and the overall appearance is much improved IMHO.
I titled this as a "missed mod" because it was actually done last year but the lousy picture made me hesitant to post it. I thought I could get a better one with a higher quality camera, now I know better, I need a better photographer! Good thing I don't have to make a living on my mad camera skillz....
The bulbs were purchased from Super Bright LEDs. There are several options to replace the original #194 bulbs (shown on the right above), on the left, you can see the 4 LED version I opted for. I ordered 12, all blue which was enough to replace all the original bulbs. If I had to do it over, I would have ordered a few green and red to match the turn signal arrows and various warning lamps. Now it is all very blue!
This was the start of an ongoing project to replace all of the lighting (wherever possible) with LED's both in and outside of Taj. The more entertaining part will be the custom fixtures for the main living area.
