New 2011 Yaris interior

Just wanted to share what I accomplished on my 2011 Yaris.

I didn't know the earlier model Yaris didn't have cruise control indicators on them but loved the color of the speedo. Hated that orange color. So since I use cruise alot, I decided to just swap out the LEDs on my new cluster as I had found a company local in New Jersey called Eastern Electronics, 800-221-2138, who swapped them out for me. I think its was just my OCD, but I kind of didn't really want to give up my cruise lights from my new cluster to switch to an older cluster as I use cruise alot. So after swapping the LEDs, I swapped the clock out of the older cluster and cut the speedo cardboard and glued it to the back of my new clusters board and it looks like it came from the factory! I finally got her all put back together tonight and just wanted to get any comments on looks since now it is all white.

And Thanks to Scott for all the help with the old cluster and swapping radios with me. Definitely a go-to guy for anything Yaris.

What do you think of my 2011?

what kind of led bulbs like is it SMD and the shape flat rounded oval, etc. I find that different type of LED and different lens shape produce lumens direction, designed to cater for different applications. The type you used is perfect, everything is well lit and clear.

For the AT gear light, i needed to put 3 LEDs in for it to lit up the whole area with evenly distributed light area.

This small bulb lights up my whole AT cluster nice! I was kind of worried honestly when I received the bulb and seen how small it was, but it really works! These are bright and reliable! Try this for the transmission shifter light. I use the Cool White color, real nice and bright.

For the A/C controls I used the info from another thread on Color Change to order the bulbs, but the bulb I orginially used for the AT kept burning out from the company that was suggested in the thread, so ordered the above light from superbrightleds, and what a difference.

If you want to have the radio white as well, I have one which I replaced all ~60 of the microscopic LEDs.
