Is there a parts list for how many LEDS are needed and of what kind?

It's like 10 t5 bulbs if I remember right.

Go to SuperBrightLEDs.com, use their vehicle specific bulb tool, and order stuff cheap from amazon or ebay

I know this is a little late, but there isn't a way to get rid of the tint on the climate control. I used three 2" halos and positioned them behind each knob to kind of overpower the tint. I straight wired them into the dash light circuit but for a 96 I'm not sure where you could find to tap. I used the cup holder light.

I'm going to attempt to use different chemicals to sort of wipe the blue off the back the guy at the LED shop suggested trying different rubbing alcohols or nail Polish removers on a q tip to remove the blue as its the last layer

The issue I had was that when I wiped the blue away, the picture on the front went away as well. The tint is what defines the image on the front, otherwise it's just a clear circle. It's not like the gauges.

I used hand sanitizer and isopropyl 70 and it worked to remove only the blue
