Can I mod this?

Allright, I'm sure everyone's seen the colored needles mod by now (http://www.jwardell.com/focus/guageslcd.html just in case you havn'). Now, i was wondering if anyone has tried or thought about how to do this same sort of thing with the stock head unit? Maybe change the green led dispay and lights to red? is this possible? food for thought.

i wouldn't try it, better off getting an aftermarket panasonic one since they have blue backlights or a pioneer to match stock backlight green colors. If you were going to atempt it you'd be better off wiring in new LEDs. just my opinion though.
