A/C Lights and Clock?

Okay I just painted my lights in the ac unit and cigarette lighter to match the orange of the gages. However the A/C light is still green and so is the Clock, Does anyone have any ideas on how to change this? I put orange plastic over the clock, but its just too damn green. And i dont know how to get to that little a/c light. Any ideas?

the ac light is a small LED. remove the AC button and paint it orange. I painted the clock. Everything is Orange for me except the damn stock stereo.

Hey Tony, when you took off the ac button, how did you get it off? I pulled but not to hard because the plastic around it felt like it would break. What did you paint the clock with? I painted it once with this clear paint, but it still looked green.

be VERY CAREFUL.

The light bulbs cannot be purchased from Toyota, you will have to buy an entire control board if you bust the lights or short them out with paint.

Just a word to the wise.

and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.
