Is there a way to make my turning signals blue?

i was wondering if i can get 2 blue leds and replace them in the gauge to make them blue. has anyone done this to their cars? If so, how did you do it?

You may be able to do that, but a SMD would not be bright enough. You would have to get a normal 12v LED, or you could just change the color of the stock green bulb to blue somehow.

Check out my profile. I turned mine blue and it didnt cost me one cent. Just take apart the gauges and scratch off the green on the back of the gauges. Then once all the green is off, color it blue with a sharpie. Or use a "bulb condom" as billy called it tongue

Btw... this was my 1000th post! woo hoo go me! grin cool

Bulb condom! thumbsup

Or acetate, but you'd better wrap that sucker good.

Means you need more red. Red acetate or cellaphane will do the trick.
