I think blue would kill your eyes at night, unless you got like a cobalt blue, or something similar to your flames. That would actually look pretty good. I'd love to see a full interior led conversion to blue!

They look better in person and at night, the whole interior now has a nice evil red glow.

I did have to modify the sockets for the foot area, just trimmed a bit of plastic to let the new bulbs fit. I also removed the protective metal covers from all the lights since the LEDs make much less heat and also I wanted all of the light to come through.

The lights were purchased from Super Bright LEDs (same place I got the strip lighting for the doors/trunk). You can replace all of your lights for $12 + shipping. :P

Yeah its just the dash that can't be done... So that makes it almost pointless to do

If GM can make it, you can un-make it an re-make it. . . . . If that makes sense. . . . .

You might just need to try it a couple times before you get it right.

hmmmmmmm If I remember correctly its been tried and the end result was &^%$ its not red bulbs in the cluster its a red film on the panel

And the GXP panels are not cheap.

Now If I could find a company to make me a panel i might consider a second cluster

Because the engine isn't running, I just turned the ignition on to get some lights.

Also while examining that picture, I noticed I'm almost out of gas! Damn...

I've seen a GP interior converted to blue so it can be done. Just a lot of work. You could remove the red film and replace with blue maybe?
