Is there a bulb in there, or waht kind color film can i use to change orange to eiather white or blue???
You can only make the clock blue using the 00-02 green clock. The LCD display in all years of the Celica is very bright light blue when the outer lens is removed. On the 00-02, Toyota uses a raw umber shaded lens to produce the green illumination and on the 03-05, they use a ruby shaded lens to produce the orange illumination.
If you are shooting for a light blue clock, use an 00-02 green clock and apply a purple cellophane filter over the segmented LCD and be sure to pull the green wire from the clock plug to disable the dimming function when the lights are on. To obtain a medium blue illumination, layer a blue cellophane filter over a purple filter. Good luck.
BTW, I have an 00-02 green clock for sale if youre interested and I will even put the filters in it to make it blue for you. $35 shipped takes it.
