You're going to want to keep those studs for if you ever have to pull the plenum again, it will make it 900x easier putting it back on.

Which is a bummer, but maybe someday I'll be able to swap them out.
Do your own how-to then and describe what you did different for others to reference.

You and me both, I really want to change the abs/slip and overdrive lights to a different color because whenever I disable those systems with the mod it looks like a junker with all of those yellow and red lights on the dash.

FWIW, I think the LEDs for the indicators like the VDC, Slip, etc. are different than the illuminating orange LEDs. They looked a bit bigger than the ones I was soldering in and more square shaped than rectangular.

If I don't get called into work today, I'll be opening up the heat/ac control panel to see if I can change the lighting in those too. Then the door window control panels. I'll see what I can come up with.

I was just browsing through another thread on them and noticed that they looked larger. Is that primarily just because they are warning lights/brighter than the regular illumination lights?

That would definitely be my guess. I guess I'll have to research that a little more myself since the ABS, VDC off mod is definitely in my near future too. Haha.

Haha yeah it's harder to explain to people that it's a good thing when you flip that switch and the dash lights up red/yellow all over the place for sure. I've been through 5 threads now and still don't see where anyone says what type of smd's they used, is it 1206?

Yeah the ones I replaced were 1206s. I got a bunch of strips of different colors for like 15 bucks on Amazon. FleaBay has em too.

Oh nice thanks man, I think I'm going to get white so I can change the color with film vs re-soldering. Size-wise do you think the 1206 would fit the vdc led location? I'd be ok with less brightness for sure on those if that was the trade off.
