That link isn't working...

If you have your manual it will tell you the bulb types. One way to do this would be to get gel caps (colored rubber covers that go on the bulbs). Or find all the bulbs you need in blue. Gel caps can be a bit expensive.

They make 194s in blue (lights under the dash). I don't remember off the top of my head what the reading lights are.

You can also get sheets of theatrical/lighting gel and get a similar affect from what I hear.

http://bonnevilleclub.com/forum/view...nterior+lights this is an old post, one of my firsts, that discusses the idea of interior lighting a bit,

This was back when Jim W was driving his Bonneville "Red Light District" and thats how he made the interior lights red, so you might PM him or some of the other members who chimed in there.
