I'm wanting to put some colored LED in my dash. Not sure what bulbs I would need. I have $ in my PayPal account so I'm wanting to buy some off ebay if possible. Mine is a 95 cobra with white gauges so would colored bulbs look right? Does it have a colored film that will throw off the bulb colors?

Pretty sure the bulbs are clear, the gauge overlay is what makes it green

I know the bulbs are clear. What I'm needing to know is if I get blue bulbs is there film on the gauges that will not allow it to glow blue.

I believe the bulbs put off a yellow light and the gauge overlay has a blue tint on it. So that is what makes it green. I've heard u can get some real bright clear bulbs and then they it will light up blue but not exactly sure tho

Yes, no, maybe, you will have to look and see if there is a permanent film or if the bulbs have colored caps or nothing on them.


You can either use the bulbs you have and paint the tips with candy colored model car paint, buy some colored LED bulbs from somewhere like Superbright LEDs, or try to find colored bulb caps to fit the bulbs/gauges you have at maybe Jegs or Summit.


Would they look right? Hard to tell, you will have to judge that for yourself.


Sorry to be so noncommittal, but opinions and tastes as well as gauge assemblies can vary greatly.
