Yeah I just did it (good write though) and I noticed the gas light does stay on. It was a pain to take everything apart and I am thinking I might just put a picture over the gas light or something because I don't want to have to take it all apart again.
But yeah, I ordered the amber LEDs and they look great. Reminds me of an older RX7 I used to drive. Question though, is there anyway to change the color of the clock? All the lights in the cluster are reddish but the clock is this bright white. Anything I can do about it?

Have you dropped the steering column? Remove or loosen the two golden bolts under the steering column and pull the column down an inch or two and you can pull the bezel out.

the clock is originally the one i wanted to fix, but its smaller. but that is okay. i have to go to the auto parts store anyway to order a new headlight switch.
but all the smaller lights are #74? i wish i would have known that before i ordered more. so in the meantime i get to drive around with a bare cluster and a steering wheel with no horn attached...BALLA
