Gauge Cluster

Hey guys, I was wondering if there is a simple way to just change the crappy green color from the white svt gauge cluster. I wouldnt even mind if it came up white! I have the sonic blue 04 so it'd be kinda cool to have it turn blue but as long as its not that green. Any suggestions or aftermarkets clusters i can get to have a blue or white gauge cluster KEEPING THE SVT LOGO?

search, or go to the how-to guide. too lazy for link, not hard to get to.
essentially.
remove cluster from car
take cluster apart
remove needles
pull off gauge face
sand back side to remove green film
sand part it attached to and remove any green film left there
replace old bulbs with desired color led bulb (194 bulb iirc, got mine at superbrightleds.com)
reattach gauge face with glue, etc
replace needles (fill gas tank to full, stick needle at full; drive for 30 mins, stick temp gauge at dead straight north; tach and mph are harder, i used gps for mph and then i don't have a tach, you could mark idle speed if you want)
put everything back together and enjoy!


to do the odometer, there's a how to on here that I won't sum up as it's really easy to mess up, but it's not hard to do when following directions. i did this all in under an hour, from gauges in car to gauges back in car

this will get you to the part of taking the needles off http://www.focusfanatics.com/howtos/guageremoval/
for that I used a fork and pried gently. just make sure to go straight up.

sorry to bump a semi old thread, is there any difference between the svt and regular gauges? My light went out behind the odometer so going to try to replace that soon
