oOoLINoOo: dibs, give me your orange clock, sell it to me!!!

i have an 02 so its green..

u cant really change the clock color (too much work or virtually impossible from what i read)
u can try paintin or overlays but it will be less brighter and color will be off sometimes

nope ur wrong, it is possible and very easy too. Remove ur center console and on the upper part u'll see the clock screwed to the back. unscrew the clock from the console, then unscrew the 4 small screws from the back piece of the clock. the front will then pop off and you just put some colored film over the glass numbers, or you can color that part with a sharpee. The clock will not be as bright, however, and when the sunlight is shining directly on it you wont be able to see, but atleast at night it looks nice.

Yes I've changed my clock, AC lights, and cig all to red using red film. It worked like a charm, and looks great thumbsup . The only thing is the clock is not as visible when theres a lot of sun, cause its not as bright. Also, when you turn the headlights on the clock automatically dims, but you can still see it fine in the dark. Honestly, i think its worth it, and i just cup my hand over the top when its sunny to see it, but at night it looks a lot better thjan the nasty green

Oh yeah the sharpee thing also works, but its more permanent

i've only done my ac panel part... its blue (not greenish-blue) just not very bright, but it does the job for me casue at night it doesnt need to be very bright.. for the ac panel make sure you take off the green condoms!

i think someone told me if i put the blue film over the clock it will turn out greenish blue...

- also, you can swap the green condoms with blue ones for the AC panel from RJ Autoworks
