The only LED lights I’ve installed in my dashboard were the two long ones that illuminate the panel on either end, specific for the GT4. They actually used green tinted barrel tungsten-filament bulbs which I’m sure are near next to impossible to find nowadays, so this was a preventative measure. I swapped them out for conventional white LED barrel bulbs and just used green photo light gels in the correct colour, glued to the backside of the light bezels.
The small gauges use E10 screw base bulbs, so these should fit: www.amazon.ca/Mini-Indicator-Screw-White
The Tach/Speedo use T5 wedge base bulbs, so these should fit: www.amazon.ca/W2X4-6D-WEDGE-WHITE-DASHBOARD
I can’t vouch for either of these as I’ve never bought them. The links are only for reference.
Keep in mind, these LED bulbs may not be dimmable, so just bypass your dimmer switch (which that alone, helps boost the brightness of the original tungsten-filament bulbs. Try that first). A bypass wire can be made with two male blade connectors on either end and that plugs into the switch wires:

In 2016, I used 2 white 1156 50mm (Hamist S25) LED bulbs for the licence plate lights. These were very small. Maybe it’s the same size for the gauges in the dashboard.
