Led lights for dash board

I have a 1965 Corsa convertible. Having problems with the dash lights.
Has any one installed LED lights in the dash. If the job includes pulling the dash, might as well add LEDs

Re: Fuel leak - fuel pump inlet side

I have used Rafi, Clark’s and California Corvair. Clark’s usually has little better pricing, but California Corvair is fairly close to Hemet, and parts are usually delivered in one day.
