Looks good. Might go with the black cat custom gauges though. Godda get my HVAC light blue too. Then comes under dash blue lighting.

So much to do, so little time.

the hvac is very simple to do if you can solder and i advise getting 12 volt leds so that you do not have to solder in resistors

this website has them i used 3mm blue for mine

12 Volt LED

12 Volt LED because they are already ready for a 12 volt source and you do not need to put in resistors and i got the 3mm because they are smaller and easier to work with it
