What do you guys think, would something like this look good. I think it would go with the whole pontiac red/orange color lights all around.

A lot of them are 194'* and cylinder types though so you can use the same gel caps

I used gel caps as well. You won't find red replacement bulbs for all the interiors, just the 194s. Use gel caps for the reading lamps. And for the lights on the doors red window tint film on the inside of the light covers works PERFECTLY!!

I used the taillight lens repair tape. Probably a bad idea as I lost some of the light that should be shining through.
