How good are you at soldering? IMO you should get 12 volt LED's, probably 3mm for steering wheel and 5 mm for cluster. Depending on how much of a perfectionist you are will determine the amount of LED's you will need for the cluster.

A perfectionist would not like bright spots and dark spots. You can add safely any amount until current draw equals original design. Since an LED nominally pulls 1/10 the current of a bulb you could in fact install up to 10 LEDs for every bulb you replace.

I went there but couldn't find the 12 v ones if they aren't 12 v then you need a resister. The link that cont posted if you want perfection buy those.
