Default Rough draft - guide to converting to LED bulbs '78-'86

I'm finally putting together a guide for converting to LEDs. It is taking me longer than expected but I think I have the exterior covered and it might help someone. I welcome any questions, comments, or criticisms to make it better.
Let me know if the link works. I don't want to upload it to rennlist because they would own it as per terms of use. Once completed I will do a guide for S4s as well.

Good for you.

Any recommendations for LEDs for the instrument cluster on later models?

Thanks, I like this level of helpful detail. On easy stuff: I found the LED swap ( '91 S4 ) for the 5 Interior Lights and the 2 Door Guard Lights to be straightforward, no other modifications needed, cheap and a real improvement. And you can then leave the doors or hatch open without quickly running down the battery.

There is already the excellent guide from Ed Scherer that covers the digital dash: Converting Porsche 928 Interior Lighting to LEDs

Yes, I've forgotten the hatch unlatched for days and did not drain the battery.
