The kit comes with LED bulbs but includes information on how to further upgrade them if needed.
Thanks Roger. Are the LEDs dimmable using the exiting dimmer wheel under the dash?

No, the resistance is wrong, but Ed makes a module that will dim the LEDs. For it to work well, you'll need all the interior lights to all be LEDs (HVAC, aux gauges, etc)

I installed mine and got tips from Bryan Lutz who is a all around good guy. Beware the electrics in our decades old cars. They need some love to interface well with the modern circuit boards. I have a perfect foil if someone needs a working gauge and can not spend $425.
Great product...

Any updates on these? How well do the board edge connectors work with the factory wiring harness?

Maybe a voltage controlled LED dimming driver could be patched in?

Seems like the early issues are worked out and maybe its time for group buy to get the numbers up.

We have sold over a 100 sets so far with nothing but happy customers. Teething issues with the first few sets were sorted by the designer. I have plenty in stock and no need for a group buy unless you want a "deal" based on quantity.
Connection to the factory harness has not been an issue at all. We added LED's to replicate the ambiance of the original lighting and work with the original dimmer. If you want to add brighter LED's and a dimmer to match you can.

We also sell the boards for the early 78 cars as well.

Roger can you confirm or deny Petza's reply to my earlier inquiry about the dimmability? Is replacement of ALL other interior bulbs to LED required?

Hi Nate,
Unfortunately, and no disrespect, Petza914 is not correct (and as far as I know does not have one of our kits) about the dimmer with the LED's as supplied - see post #7. Remember our goal was to emulate the original lighting and not super bright as some folks want. Instructions include info on how to upgrade to "BRIGHT" led's and also enhance the brightness of the the cluster.
Also, and above, starting at Post #47 it shows how to increase the brightness by changing the LED bulbs and adding a dimmer.
No idea about other bulbs but if you use our stock kit nothing else needs changing. If you change to brighter LEDs I do not know the effect on other bulbs.
Roger

Correct. I do not have one of Roger's kits. I have pod LED wedge bulbs from Jager and one of Ed's dimmers along with all regular incandescent bulbs everywhere else. When I hooked up the dimmer with that setup it worked great on the wedge bulbs but essentially shut off the light output from the other bulbs once I had the LEDs at the intensity I wanted them.

Currently I'm bypassing the dimmer until I can change all the other bulbs to LEDs.

Thanks for clearing that up Rog!
