Yeah. I tried that. My experience was that the heater and AC buttons didn't light up because not enough lights were shinning through. I just colored my stock bulbs "orange" to match my gauges. I also colored the clock and the cigarette lighter to the same color.

But it is looking good, Ken. Keep up the good work. thumbsup

You can also spray the A/C area with reflective paint or chrome to get a brighter shine. I've done it works out well. Only reccomend it if you've taken apart you're whole control unit.

Keep it up looks very clean!

I agree with you, you are never alone here. Most of these guys have green lights in center dash and it sucks. I hated that about my 2000 the change to all one color in 2003 was a good move.

I wanted to do that, but I heard they blow out shortly after.

How long has yours lasted?
