LED Shifter Illumination Mod

Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:58 pm

Just because it looks cool:

It was tricky to do, but it looks awesome! Comes on during the day when the car is on, and dims at night depending on the setting of your dash light brightness.

Ingineer is officially 'mod happy'.

Looks fun though...

Just know when to say when!

That does look awesome indeed!! This is how I imagined it should look. I wonder if Ingineer will be getting an award for most tricked-out Leaf :) Planning on showing off your mods at the SEMA show next year? I don't know how much it costs to exhibit though.

Seems to me the pre-production show car had something like this. I remember that being the one difference I spotted in the photos. Way to go, Phil! The coolest car on the road deserves a cool upgrade like this.

Edit: Been trying to find the photo(s) I remember seeing, and not coming up with much. But it seems that what I should be remembering is the turn signal and wiper stalks had blue inserts on the ends that looked like they should light up (hint, hint...)
And there goes the first capacity bar! At 24,000 mi on 9/9/2013.
Second bar at 30,500 mi on 2/7/2015.

You can see his seat heater switches in the top photo (in the background).
I can just see the look on the Technician's face when Phil takes it in to Nissan for its first service...WTF??

So how do we light up the gear shifter? Would love to do it! Have already upgraded luggage compartment to LED for brightness. Would love to do the shifter mod!
