does anyone know if the electrical film that provides power to the lights in the dash has been reproduced or other solutions have been found to replace bad or no longer working
contacts?

what type of led s are the best for lighting dash gauges?

has anyone added lighting on console to see manual shifter area of 2.5 with 5 spd?

thanks for you help

I bought my oldest daughter on 80/81 TA I think it was and the entire dash lights were out, so being I am cheap and had a soldering iron I took the iron and wired in, well wires to replace the faulty lights circuits. Really was simple but not easy, I had to follow all the wires on the flexible printed circuit board and soldered real wires from the plugs female socket to the proper bulbs fingers I guess you would call them that the bulbs themselves go into. didn't take all that long and worked like a charm.

As far as replacement flexible circuit board replacements I think you may be able to pick up a complete working dash cluster on line, eBay comes to mind or even a bone yard.

See my Cave, Dash Dimmer before you use LEDs.

I think "Boards" are made for dash type. GT etc dash are different from normal dash.
