Unhappy

Dude, sorry to be the bringer of bad news...

The interior items, such as radio face, HVAC cluster, and all of those things are almost.... (ALMOST being the key word) Impossible to change...

Granted you could make a radish 400 hp, it's all a matter of BLING BLING!! But the gauges, and knobs all have a plastic injection molded GREEN sleeve that goes into them... You would have to have someone make new ones that are clear.. I suppose you could try changing the light bulbs and put colored ones in.. But you still have to deal with the fact that what ever you put in is going through a HEAVY green filter.. The light bulbs themselves are clear!! The amount of green you see is from the gauges and knobs...

Could it be done.. YEAH...

Is it worth the hastle?? Depends on how much you really want to put up with as far as changing things, and spending cash!!

I know this sucks, but hey at least you know what you have to do if you still want to...

Would those gauges on speedhut.com fit correctly in a 03 SVT? it does not say svt and im not sure if the other models have the same indicator light layouts. so i thought id ask before i buy.

Sorry to tell you Focus~Racer.... but I have changed all of my lights in the inside of the focus from green to blue. It is alittle difficult to do you must be confident with desoldering and resoldering. Because you need to remove the green L.E.D.'s and replace them with what ever color you would like. I did blue. If anyone needs help doing this mod let me know. I'd be happy to help.
Here are some pix.....

The first couple of pix look green but it is really blue, the flash was on and changed the color. Enjoy!!!!!!!!
