I thought I'd share the look.
As you can see I have "a thing" about blue LEDs


Dash lights

Even the indicators.
Cool Blue:ILU:

changing the illumination is easy.
1. Remove the column cowling
2. Remove speed surround
3. Remocve the clocks (2 screws)
4. Change bulbs
5. Remove green film (if you are lucky you can grasp with pliers otherwise you may need to take the front off the speedo (easy job, 2 screws.)

Reassemble. Job done

Indicators alittle more tricky. You need to gain access to the rear of the led indicator bulb which needs unsoldering and replacing with an LED with the appropriate resistor.
I drilled a hole big enough to do this, carefully:ILU:

There is a company called DDI (dub design industries) in the USA that do new faces for your clocks that light up white.
