Default 08+ Cubby/Glovebox LED Replacement

Was sick of the useless amount of light coming from the lights in the cubby (little pocket in front of the shifter) and the glovebox, and since they dont use a standard bulb, I had to come up with something. The original housing uses an LED and resistor, had I pulled it apart and planned to just change the LED, but I hate modifying OEM parts when I dont have to. What if i dont like it? Or I want to go back to stock. I have a 3D printer, and some cad skills so I went about creating a replacement part.








Ignore the red climate and radio, the rest is white. lol. At least the light is usable.

its not QUITE as bright as the pics make it look, you can tell the hvac and radio seem a lot brighter. Its a huge improvement over the original led which you could barely tell existed. I can actually see whats in there now without my phone hahaha. They also dim with the factory controls
