how hard was it to take the old smd's of and put new ones on?
and good work btw :D
I changed mine to green....easy to get off...just melt them and flick them off lol ******* to get the new ones on!!! I actually melted one and had to buy a new set!! GRRR!! If you have a steady hand and a small enough solder iron then go for it, if not buy them already done on a LED site....send your old ones to them and you get wonga off and i have a 10% discount code for them aswell ;) x

Well ive just tought myself to solder over the past week. I leart by doing my xbox controller. Now xbox leds are small, there about half the size of the ones on the steering controls. to be honest its quite easy once you know how. i had a spare set of steering controls so i thought ide give it a go.

next up the rest of the car haha

The big question is "have I got the dangly bits to take my dials apart and attack them with a soldering iron?" :sus:

My thoughts exactly. But i spoke to Chris Gair and he assured me that everyone worries about the clocks but tje clocks are infact the easiest part. But am gonna leave these till last haha
