Lots of people have done it, mine are blue.

The instructions are in the How TO threads. Theres both changing the color of the dials and for the LED panel. It takes some time and a fair bit of patience, so and extra cluster can be handy, so you can still use your car. :)

The main thing is you have to remove the layer behind the numbers and each location that lights up, and buying colored led lights to replace the stock clear lights.

This link HERE is for the odometer. To do the speedo and tach and other face gauges you sand the backing layer behind the text or symbols and replace the OEM bulbs with LEDs of your color choice. I know there's a how to somewhere for it, just can't find it right now.

Yes it was a total plug and play. He is great if you need help he can send a PDf for the install and with a core swap I think mine was like 150 for the entire conversion. PM him and he will get you all the details.
