Yep, everything, including all buttons, switches...etc.
I already changed out the navi buttons, those were easy once I dissembled the track pad. The drive mode switch will get done here later tonight, and the park/shifter lights will easily be done as well.
100% agree, I did NOT want anything blinding. I did that mistake once with the steering wheel buttons on the Solara that I changed and although it looked wonderful with the pure white. it was entirely too bright at night. Very distracting having the buttons right there on the steering wheel shining back at you. I had to dim them down and use led bulb covers to mute them to an acceptable level. I have astigmatism in both my eyes so any super bright lights at night is a problem. Given what happened above, I'm now super conscious of not repeating that or having to deal with the brightness and being blinded. I assure you that the LEDS that I choose aren't going to be like that.
That's why I bought 40 different SMD leds in the 1206 size. All varying brightness/color/hues of white. I narrowed it down to 2. My initial plan was to use LED from existing Lexus models. What you see above is from a Lexus NX climate control panel that I used in the CT's panel. This however gets expensive to buy a $60-$140 item only to scavenge the leds from it... So, the other leds that I bought and labeled on my little cheat sheet I've narrowed it down to 2 of them that would best be suited for brightness and color.
The 1st set which I think I labeled as "W" on my sheet are almost a 100% match to the Lexus NX leds which is exactly what I'm going for. They are NOT pure 100% cold white. They are more of a off white-ish color. Not yellow, but not pure white. They are pretty much what is in every Lexus model to date that uses white leds for interior lighting. It's very easy to look at them at night and not have any strain what-so ever. When I get my second HVAC panel, I will be using the "W" labeled LEDS in that and comparing it. PLUS using the 1206 leds in the HVAC I can easily use them in all other panels which will then guarantee a match of color. Whereas when you start getting into different shape/szies of LEDS it's going to be much harder to match color/brightness/hue given the different specs...I have another HVAC panel coming for this color of LED to compare.
The 2nd 1206 led marked as "J" on my cheat sheet has already been ordered and I should get it next week. They are slightly whiter in color. Not drastic but enough to match a closer white color to the HVAC display/gauge cluster. The weird part of this one is that it's actually a lower rated MCD (brightness) but yet is slightly brighter when they are on. Again, nothing blinding at all. So really, it's come down to the two choices. I'm leaning towards the second "J" led ONLY because I feel like when I do the little tiny 0806 stereo and steering wheel LEDS, it's going to be a better match for the color.
(Although in my wife's NX and now looking at my RCF, the steering wheel/stereo, and HVAC leds are all just slightly different. They aren't the exact same color tone. CLOSE, but really looking at them they are not the same), so it might not be realistic to for me to try and get everything to match 100% or else I'd be chasing leds a long time... I have yet another HVAC panel for this LED to compare between my first one with the NX leds, and the above panel that will have the "W" leds..
I will note that the ozium leds that people use have a brightness of like 1200+ MCD which seems really bright to me. The two I'm using are around 240mcd and 400mcd..
