Default LED lighting for gauge

After my wife burned her thigh on an instrument's chrome bezel, I've been "encouraged" to switch to LED bulbs for lighting. I know that Livorsi has them, but $9.00 each x 24 gauges seems stiff. My Livorsi gauges have the wedge-base bulb; I don't have the exact size with me.

Any ideas where to get a better deal?
Thanks
Due

What was her thigh doing up on the dash??? There's more to this story!
and video!

Try this place. I have bought items from them before, but not sure about gauge bulbs.

Funny , but unfortunately the dash isn't wide enough for that; she was standing and touched the gauges.

do you have the lights hard wired? Mine are on a switch, and I hardly ever use them...

They're switched, but they get very hot when the lights are on.

You can try low intensity bulbs. Cheaper and they won't blind you in the dark.























































Or just tell the wife to keep her azz in the seat.
