I worked with him a few times on this.

The dash has a red tint/film in it behind the white. The white /red also transmits lights thru, not just being lit from behind.

It may be possible, but it'* not easy.

hmm doubt they would work since the 96-99 dashes are diffent from the 92, right?
either way doesn't sound like an easy process.......

*edit* - i just looked at the sites u linked....they look cool....but doesn't look as though it will would for an ssei model....i'd miss my boost gauge...and probably some other things.....

Ouch...there'* plenty of them made.

I haven't looked up production numbers .... but I see SSEi'* all over. Matter of fact theres a beautiful champagne one near my parents place. With a handicap sticker on the mirror. Can you imagine crippled ole gramma driving an SSEi?
