i had my dash apart so i figured why not try the chrome paint trick. so i took the cluster apart. wiped out lits of dust and removed all parts including cirkit board. then got some chrome paint and gave it 2 coats on the cluster insides and the back of the gauge cover also. then i got some ultra flat black and redid the front of the gauge cover. i have done some searching of bulb #s for there light output specs. to my suprize i found we might have some help in a diffrent bulb # . we basicly use the 194 bulbs as thay are comon and easy to find plus we assume thats whats in there. well his little brother is the 168 bulb. the specs are 194 = 2 candle power output. 168 = 3 candle power output. so in short if we are looking for just a bit more of a edge on the dime gauge lights try the 168 bulbs. i just got done with the reassembly and will get bulbs after work tomarow. then i wwill plug it in and snap some pics for ya.
