You will need to know your way around a soldering iron. The stock bulbs are soldered to the cluster's board, so you'll have to desolder those. Then you'll have to figure out the resistance needed for whichever LEDs you choose, they are NOT plug and play, then solder those back in. I am planning to do a write up on this maybe next weekend as the polarity assignments for the contact pads are different between DIC clusters and non DIC clusters.

When you purchase the LEDs, try to buy the widest beam pattern possible. If they are to narrow, you will have significant "hot spots".
