ampedout Yes you can change them to any color. Paint the needles any color you would like and you could paint the inside white housing the same color or a glossy chrome. When painting the white inside housing the same color or a darker color it makes the light come off a bit more dark and rich instead of flooded.

As for a purple, I have attempted to use a black light inside the housing with dark purple UV reactive paint and it was all good until the tiny black light burnt out. I have also painted the needles blue with dark blue or black housing and blue lights to produce a cool purple found in a lot of VW gauges.

SuperFlea Nope, he only used the three red bulbs you see in the pics. And he painted the clear needles.

xeneizes Are those 3 LED's the only thing that illuminate the entire dashboard?

Did you put diff. led color bulbs for it? Or you have the 3 red ones only?

I am kinda confused whit this.

SuperFlea Nope... the screen has the green filter... (paint/color) Yes, the bulb is smaller than the rest of the bulbs, or in this case, the main bulbs that light up the entire cluster.

cuban4life2125 if you change the stock bulb on the lcd display to a blue led will you get blue light? or does the screen have a green filter on it? and oh yea isnt the bulb for the lcd smaller than the other bulbs for the gauge cluster.

Sting2324 It MIGHT be possible to get them a different color. If you use a Kandy paint than you might be able to get a different color. Kandy paint is transparent..

ampedout The orange needles are blow molded orange though, regardless of what color you paint them they will show up orange. They are orange all the way through.
