I have sussed out the lights, and getting the dash off is no probs, all i need to know is what is the best product for changing the white bits to blue bits in my 94' EF falcons dash?

Name of product if possible all i have found so far is descriptions.

i went for these LED's as the narva ones are too hard to come by over here, the ones under the blue is the filter i am going to use to change the whites to blues and also the odometer.

You might need to frost them back to get a good amount of light out of them.

oh sorry i forgot about that bit, i also bought some 150 Grade sand paper
but as for now i have to go pull the dash apart to make sure these lights actually fit before i go sanding them.

Thanks for all your help fellow modders.

should have bought the Narva Dash Panel Globes Part Number 47902 about 10 for $25'ish (I got mine for $19 :D), these do the job and dont need to be frosted

could have used ebay, but good luck with ur lights

and post a pic when u're done

Righto all done here are the pics.

looks much better in the car but i got those dark patches too because they were painted on the backing.

Nearly had heart failure doing the Odometer as the rubber contacts came loose and i thought i had broken it because it didn't work after that. but i got it.

Yes cheers bug but as you know i do owe most of my thanks to you!!

Anyone wanting to undertake this and do not have much know how in the area don't stress just make sure you have a spare few hours and keep the internet on (lol) i only broke 1 globe and that was for the odometer because it would not budge and i stupidly used pliers to try and get it loose.

D'OH
