And use a blue sharpie for a quick fix, or you can solder in new LED's

thanks for the warm welcome guys!!

i heard though (and read) that using sharpie just bakes it on and makes it dimmer even with the dimmer turned all the way up?? and what bulb size would i need exactly to solder on? or if its even worth trying and just buy a new cluster and forget about it haha
