Odometer Display?

Hi guys, I am looking to change over the dull green colour from the odometer to a nice blue...

Can anyone help, with regards what I need and more importantly how to do it?

Thanks

Russ

theres two ways....

1.) replace the light behind the gauges so it shines blue (look in the interior how to section for this one)

2.) buy a new set of gauge faces that glow blue. I did this one. you'll have to wire them to a 12v power source.

each isn't too hard. you can look into the how to section for ideas and help. =)

What way would be best to get it sorted based on the kit I bought above?

Thanks for this by the way

For the odometer you scrape the green off the backside and then replace with something tinted blue. I used a piece of plastic I had. Gauges will not change the odometer at all.
