Changing gauge color

http://ebay.whitegauges.net/products...structions.gif

Does anyone know if this will change the look of the ugly green lights in my gauge?

Update, I was told that the green is a film applied to the back of the cluster and that it had to be sanded off. Anybody confirm?

The only reason i think they are bulbs is because it changes when i have my headlights on

I have a 2000, but I don't want to take the cluster out and all apart just to see if it has a film haha

I have these .

It goes over your existing gauges and also changes the color to a white/blue-ish color, much better than the green, if you ask me.

They have the actual gauge color in white as well, here

I did read up on modifying the stock gauges before I purchased the reverse glow gauges, and apparently it can be done. However you do have to take off the needles and pull the gauges off...and sand off that green film that is on the back.

It's not very hard to get the instrument bezel off, you can take that off and hold it up in the sunlight. If it has the green tint to it, then it has the green film on the back. My 2004 has it. If it doesn't have a green tint to it, you can replace the bulbs in the back of the instrument bezel and change the color of your gauges.

Instead of pulling the needles and all that, I just bought the reverse glow gauges, stuck them on, plugged them in to the factory harness and now have cool blue-ish color gauges.
