Default interior light color

I want to convert all my interior lights to red. What is the best way of doing this? Anyone have part numbers for me?

Just pull the bulbs out of the car, then go to your local ricer shop and get bulbs that are meant to be red. Then also get little rubber "condoms" is the best way to describe it that are red to make sure the bulbs glow red instead of pink.

Yep, go to Advance Auto Parts (If you have one near you), and go to the light bulb Aisle. On the very bottom shelf underneath all of the bulbs, and ALL the way to the left, there are red 194 bulbs in Yellow packages (Part Number 194R), and also red dome / map lights (Part Number 512R I think??) that will fit. Every store in the country should be set up the same, because as a part time manager, we used to get these stupid plan-o-grams we had to set the products to EXACTLY, or else the store got marked off points. I havent worked there since I graduated, but I stop in every now and then and the bulbs are still there

I've done this already to my Maroon 92 SE! I first changed to 2 front lower kic panel lights to red 194 bulbs. I then used red lens repair tape to cover the lenses of the door lights, map lights & accessory lights. You can get it on a roll about 1.5" wide. Just cut to length.
