Thanks in advance!!
The green film is not on the back side like in your speedo and odometer. Its on the front underneath the icons that you see. I'll tell you what I did. Buy some wideband 74 style leds and just replace the 74 bulbs that are in there. I think you need 4. I did this and it shines right through.
