Re: Dash lights???

lmao who ever told u that is a tool. U can do any colour, u can either use light leds, and solder them in, or u can use condom covers. I have used condom colours, i started with BLUE, which looked bog, tried green which sucked even more so now i got red, and it looks awsome

Re: Dash lights???

the reason they said you can only go red is becuase the cluster is actually orange, the lights are clear in the back of it, and the numbers and guages are actually coloured orange, orange is easy to change to red and is the most effective and easy change.
you can go any other colours, but they most likely won't come out in the right colour you're after.
like Blue will come out with an orange still in it, so Blue/orange would be sorta off purple i guess.
