By Law you do NOT Need dash lights happy

The bulbs are clear bulbs and not green, its the dials that make it look green think You need to fit coloured bulbs, the colour what goes with green to make red learn

Green + ****** = Red

the dials themselves are white, and the green light comes form a small green film type of thing that the white bulbs shine through, so i will need cut that out and fit red bulbs possibly??

red is a primary colour and cant be made from mixing other colours can it? confused

Hiya,

Try this site, www.ultraleds.co.uk
A friend of mine changed all the dash lighting to blue on his US spec scooby, looked pretty good. LED's seem to work better than coloured bulb filters.

Good luck and let us know how you go.

Daz
