Default Changin the dash colors?

Hey, I was thinking about changing the color of all of my dash lights to green. I would kind of like to make it so that I can have a switch to turn it back to red if need be, the cops in my area are not the most understanding when it comes to sweet looking cars, LOL. I was wondering if this was at all possible? If this is something that could be accomplished where the heck would I even start!?

Instead of changing the color, add a new color bulb to the scheme that will change the color display. For instance if you have red now, add blue and you will end up with a green. You can probably make this happen by adding some neon tubes behind the cluster and a separate switch toa ctivate them.

But, if you want light green all the time, pull the cluster out and replace all the bulbs. There is no law that I am aware of that requires the dash lights to be any particular color - just visible at night.

on most vehicles you can change the bulbs in the cluster, I did this on my ond car but on the bonni the bulbs are not replaceable which makes it even worse that they are very sensitive to shock, they burn out very easily I learned the hard way

and Purple is right there are no laws that require lights to be a certain color in your car
