Default Gauge cluster lighting

Is it possible to change the color of the backlighting of the guages? Or will I have to buy aftermarket guages. I was thinking about this and I like my gauges as they are, but I would like to change the color up and was just curious if it were possible. Thanks for any help.

Its possible but allot of work. You have to disasemble the entire dash and get to the actual film of the gauges and scrape off the red with a dremmel or blade as another member has done.

Then you need to get the correct bubs in the color you wish to change it to then reassemble.

So basically it would just be easier to go aftermarket (if available)....

there are no aftermarket guages for our cars, unless you do not have the Driver information center. They sell reverse glow guage overlays on ebay for those cars. As far as changing the color of the guages it looks great but its a pain to do and takes a very long time to do right. The bulbs are about 10$ a piece and you need about 7 also.
