one more question would a LED with a higher output make the light go across the whole door instead of falling short like the stock does.

On the door panel the part that dos not have light is painted and the light dos not shine threw, You need to pull the door panel off and sand the trim, and you can add a second LED at the opposite side for more light.

I'd like to see PIC's of "custom" colors installed. I'm interested in seeing white in the silver trim piece which is what I want to do.

1/4 watt but that is not the ohms, that is by the LED you use.

Speaking of 4 Pack Gauges, does anyone else that has installed the HUD have a problem with the cigarette lighter on it or am I wrong that it is even able to provide power to charge or etc.
