Default choose my dash color

this one is just a poll. tell me what you like better as far as dash color goes. Trying to decide if I want to try and go through with the hassle of changing it from green to blue.

Green is nicer..easier on the eyes, blue on black is uber killer on the eyes

I think the blue looks awesome. Green is kinda generic

The blue instrumentation in the later VWs is really sharp and not too stressful on the eyes.

thanks. That'* where i got this idea from. My boss has a 98 VW beetle and I love the way the dash lights up blue. so I thought I'd do a photo edit changing green colors to blue, etc.

I have bright blue on my saturn and its really annoying on those late night / early morning commutes. I personally wouldnt change my bonneville blue, and I dont know how easy it would be, the lights on the cluster are regular bulbs the color is made by the overlay... Just a thought...

I've had half a dozen I/Ps apart, the color is made by the overlay. If you attept this, I would use an exacto (sp?) and cut out the lights, then use blue tint film to replace those areas.
