    the bulbs are usually white with little colored rubber bits covering the light itself, you just need to search to find the replacement colored rubber bits in the color u like then swap em over.

    p.s. you will need to get ones that are the right size to swap over on your dash lights
    so i would say take one out go to your local autozone or car accessories place and find ones that match/fit the bulb and then buy 'em

    for example:
    AutoZone.com | Bulb Cover

    you can replace all the bulb rubbers to whatever color you like a couple of em are tougher to get to, but the gauge cluster ones r relatively easy.

    best tutorials from member Trunk_Monkey onNASIOC.

    That's what I'm worried about my good friend suggested I look into new gauges but I'm not sure if it's worth it
