    Hi,
    Posted earlier enquiring about led bulbs for dashboard.
    Got those sorted thanks.
    Am trying to find led bulbs for the switches.
    Have tried a firm called Ultraleds but they don’t seem to reply to enquiries.

    Does any member know of a source please.
    Thanks

    yeah I use standard 5mm led with 'heavy duty' resistors (ones which can cope with voltages over 14v, unlike 'computer' ones which only do just over 12v and burn out)

    I use thon old soldering iron tip to burn out the middle post in the switch bulb holder and drop the resistor in there, you'll see what I mean
