Quality Green E10 LEDs for center console?

(David Divins 1970 S2 2+2) #1

All,

As the title says, I’m looking for a source for quality leds for the center console (battery, oil, etc indicators).

Superbright seems to only have white.

Anyone know a good place in the US?

Thanks!

I just did this. First I tried the single green E10 LED’s, not good.
Then I tried these.

Very happy with the results. But I did need to grind down the corners slightly to get some of them to fit. They are from China in case you care.

Did you fit them inside the factory green filters?

Yes inside the filters. I did not want to rip the gauges apart to remove the filters.

Thanks. Can you detail a bit more the grinding required?

They are made from 5 small circuit boards soldered together to make a cube. They could’ve put the edges a little closer together. There was a slight interference when trying to insert them down the metal pipe on the back of the instruments. I had ordered 10 and some fit without problems. The corners ofthe led’s don’t do anything, so I went to a grinding wheel and took off maybe a quarter to a half a millimeter . Then they slid in without binding.
