Gauge color...an idea!
Hey, why couldnt we just buy acetate and cover the led's behind the gauge cluster?? Wouldnt that work?? Just cut acetate to fit right over the LED's!! Anyone think it would work or no???

I think that would work if they were white but im 99% sure they are amber which would probably give a weird color mixed with blue confused
