I need new LED 2721 lights for my little truck. I got some a couple years ago from BUGGMAN. Does anyone know if he still sells them, and how to contact him?

Has the LED Lighting for the Gauge Clusters improved any ?

Used to be very spotty at best and as most people, I want the light spread out evenly !

Scrambler82, I purchased some from buggman here on this site & I like the spread of his LED's. It lights up the gauge cluster nicely. Check my post above where I posted the link to his pm.

High setting and lowest lighted setting ?

Thx / Ltr

Scrambler82, no I do not have any. My digital camera has a night shot setting I will try to get a couple tonight or tomorrow night & post them for you.

Thanks, 

Do you by any chance, know of a Site where I could use an old part number and see information about that part ?

I am trying to get info on a Gauge Cluster... without success !

Johnday was asking about LED's, & Scrambler82 PM'd me about the light spread of the LED's so I took a couple shots last night so everyone can see how the lighting spread are on buggman's  gauge cluster LED's. The first picture is on the lowest setting,



The next picture is on the highest setting, sorry about the blurry pictures.



IMHO the spread of the LED's I purchased from buggman here on this site is as good as the factory bulbs with no hot spots.

Are these OEM Cluster colors ?
They look pretty even in the light distribution, what bulbs did you use ?

Looks like you were little under the weather when you took them; the pictures look like mine end up when I use the Phone.

Nothing like full on Camera for clarity and a good solid shot.

I have to run and retake shots that I want, I try the Phone... NO_GO, then the Camera.

Thanks as usual, Ltr.

The cluster color is Ford stock. I do not remember what is the number of the LED bulb for the cluster, contact buggman here & he can assist you in which ones to get, here is pm address on this site.
