1970 El Camino Dash Lights…

The swept dashboard instrument cluster light brightness seemed to be on the dim side. I removed the upper Dash pad to access the 194 bulbs from the rear. I replaced all of the bulbs and the intensity didn’t seem to increase much, especially in the center area of the instrument panel. 

Tip, if you’re needing the same multiple bulbs for a project. You can purchase them bulk at your local auto parts store. This is a huge savings. In my case buying the packages would cost $30 for 10, I was able to get 10 pieces for $8 bucks. That’s a big savings. 

I even tried using the LED equivalent version, that made no difference at all.
