Interior lighting help?

Is there a way to change my cluster light color from green? I thought I saw a thread somewhere a guy changed all of his to red, any info is appreciated I'd like to swap all mine to orange when the car is painted

Stock lighting is white with green film

So I guess you remove the film and solder in new LEDs.

I never really paid that much attention.
Would probably be cheaper for the film...

Have to pull all the panels find the light... Pull the film off... Test all the lights with the panels off... Then out the panels on again. Lol, unless it's as easy as just taking the old bulb out and putting in a colored on it may not be bad.
