you wont see blue at all unless you paint them, the light from the led will pass through it and show on the outside of the bezel.

get a peice of vynil and stick it on, thats what i would do, because you can take it off and change it easier.

I used a red sharpie for mine and it still shows through, not the best at night though. Since I used a red led for the tach near the end, the needle glows brighter and brighter as you close in on redline. The speedo needle is boring though. I will be re-doing them in blue because my calibration is a bit of so I gotta try to get them more accurate. Btw, anybody what rpm's I would be in at 65 on the highway? Probably 3rd gear would be more accurate if I get the rpm's right. I'll just be setting cruise when I get to the right rpm and put in on 65.
