I think those are fiber optic lines. One bulb changed and you've changed them all.

Is there a way to make the gauges light source more powerful/brighter? If not I think Randman1'* got the right idea with just using a blue film. That looks pretty sweet though, nice job. One last thing, how is the dash red to begin with? Is it painted, molded, film?

yes there is, get brighter bulbs, which i am doing, they are goign to be PC168'* instead of PC194'*. they will be twice as bright. check this out http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...371&highlight=

the dash is red by a thick red coating, probably paint, almost molded into the plastic, then a white layer is over that.

randman and i have been discussing this a lot, and he has gave me several options to make this work. so in another couple months i should have something better

Good job on trying to change the color and stuff but it turned out terrible IMO and wasnt worth the effort. Nice try though.
