LED cluster gauge install

Ive taken apart the cluster and already soldered white LEDs on it. I see that the factory faceplate has the numbers orange. Im not sure whether the white will shine through, but im guessing it wont. Is there a way to get rid of the orange without needing to buy the RJ auto works gauge? I remember i saw someone here that did it and made it clear, but i forgot who and how they did it

A long time ago I heard of someone scraping the color off of the gauges but I wouldnt suggest doing that. I dont think it turned out too great.

You are suppose to use a spoon. There should be a install guide somewhere that talks about it.

They are gauge faces not indiglos so you have to do the entire led conversion but all the same.
