    Dash Lights

    Hey everyone ...

    I got a question about dash and hvac lighting ...

    I want to change all my dash lights and hvac to blue ...

    but for now I'm staring with the fog and curise switchs ... I've already scraped off all the greenish color from the back so I'm good to go there ...

    I've been reading about "bulb condoms" but I'm not sure which to get ...

    This is the bulb from the fog light switch ...



    Any help is greatly appreciated ...

    thanks alot

    - Steven

    Do a search. There are a few guys on this forum who went absolutely balistic with their interior lights changing even the one in the radio. They are braver than I.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    good luck w/ blue. you may need to go LED if you want that. people havent had much success w/ blue bulb covers, because the visible light actually comes out more whiteish to the human eye. (think about headlight bulbs, how blue the glass is, yet they usually come out super white) its not quite as extreme w/ bulb covers, but has kind of the same effect. if you have the factory boost gauge, that actually has a blue cover on the bulb, but the backlight comes out white.

    i did red on mine (gauge cluster, radio, hvac, boost gauge) only thing i havent done is the foglight/cruise buttons, but red looks VERY nice

    Here's my tutorial, there is also one over on Nasioc where the guy used strips of sandpaper to take off the film which may be easier. First off, you can FUBAR your gauges so be warned. As for the bulb condoms, go to www.partsexpress.com and get a bag of each size (.12" and .2"). Good luck, I hope you have patience.
