    you can get custom gauges anywhere online (ebay), or you can swap out the colored nipples on the bulbs that plug into the back of the gauge cluster.

    I put LED's in mine.. it worked out great. I now have Blue LED's instead of the blu green bulbs.

    This is misc. LED info, very helpful if you consider building an LED gauge cluster.

    check out this site, it give you instructions about building LED's and how to make them work.

    Using these directions, along with all the Resistors they suggest, will allow you to Use your cars Electriacal system to power the LED's (ie. all the original in-dash lighting harness.


    Hope this helps you to expand your options on changing the in-dash lighting color.
