Default BLUE LED trial

just was in interested in a different look, i got a red and blue LED but havent tryed the red in there yet, figured i would give it a night with both in there. Heres the blue, let me know if this looks terrible, the only reason i went with the blue is because of the head unit and phone charger. I cant figure out if its out of place or not. but if the blue doesnt work, i got a red LED ready to be slapped in there.

well the park isnt lit up like the others because its the gear shift indicator. it moves when the gear shifter moves..

looks good, you given me an idea.

Question, if I was to replace the bulb in the instrument panel with a blue LED, will it have the same blue effect?

no, the instrument panel has an orange and red film to give the colors, you have to get that off first then in stall the blue led'*. I think that might be a project in the near future

Actually that looks really cool. It works with the HU being blue also.
