Still need to do the rear window controls and I have an idea to light the rear door handles

vegetaarmy,

Did you buy the LEDs as a kit or did you get info on what form factor of LEDs are used for the conversion? I assume the original Saturn illumination is an LED source and not incandescent. Thank for any help. The Vauxhall, Holden, and Opel owners group was not very responsive on this conversion. They suggested a site in the UK that does not respond to e-mails.

That site that they recommended was where I purchased my leds. It's a mixture of 0805, 1206, plcc-2, and plcc-4 leds. If you did purchase their kit, it comes with almost all of the leds needed to finish this conversion off. All of the leds are very small and takes a bit to get them soldered in. Off hand i can not tell you how many of every led you will need.

Not as of lately. I got a VXMMI in piano black for Christmas, and when I get my taxes back I'm getting a full black center console and dash. And then I want to have the front chrome grill and rear chrome strip painted in matte black or carbon flash. More to come this year
