Hello All,

I am new to this site but have owned my 914 for twenty some years. I have always been annoyed by the meager gauge lighting so I installed LED strips in all my gauges and have been pleased with the results ever since.

I can provide this service to the Porsche community so take a look and let me know if there is an interest.

Here is what I do: refinish the inner gauge housings with a highly reflective paint. On the examples below I stripped the inner and outer bezels to bare metal and repainted in mat-silver. I chose to paint the dial pointers the same mat-silver on the early gauges. On the late gauge I installed the BLUE LED strip lighting. Incandescente are meager and the LED strips are a HUGE difference over the BA7 LED bulbs! One customer has stated that these photo's don't do justice to the brightness from these lights.

These are simple plug and play with a ground and hot lead exiting the rear of each gauge. Pull your old bulbs out, reinsert the sockets add a double connector (these are provided) to one socket and connect the HOT lead and the ground connects in the same fashion to a source on the back of your gauge and they light up.

LED colors available are: Cool White, Natural White, Blue, Ultra Violet, Red, Green and Amber.
I can perform the LED strip lighting for:
$30 ea. Dash gauge
$20 ea. Console gauge
$10 ea. strip/paint in/out
$15 set replace plastic w/ GLASS lenses
Working on a better fix for the problematic odometer
