You get some light blue "post-it" notes. I got mine from K-Mart, though i made mine red, but im pretty sure you can get a light blue color.

Then what you do is cut out a template from the LCD one thats already in there, and place two pieces on top of each other and put it back together.

Theres a tutorial in here, its http://www.fordmods.com/forums/documents.php?doc=25

Does this actually make the numbers blue, or just the background of the screen?

i suggest you use LED's as well. Blue filter with a normal globe will end up with a more light green colour rather then blue....
