Dash light change

Hi everyone,

I did something similar to my Mean Streak, so I though I would do the same thing to the 750. I took the inner liner of the dash with the wires and lights, pulled out the lights and drilled six 10mm holes. I covered the area with a carbon fiber film and then put in the representative LED lights.

Due to the back side of the cover I had to use a metal plate so that it would hold up the back of the LED bulbs and still be thin enough to get a small nut onto each LED. Trying to get everything set up I scratched a couple of the LED's, so I may replace those in the future.

Here is the link I used to get the LED's (10mm) - https://m.ebay.com/itm/12V-36V-8-16m...8j8DGg1nGsx4Iw

Hopefully I can get this set up by next weekend.

Cheers,
JT
