Put 4 bulb covers on my EF Futura dash and there is a hint of blue there. How many will I need to make the entire dash blue and when I pull out the Cluster do i need to remove the white backing of it to access more bulb which need covering?

I know LEDs are better but its a money and time factor that prevents me putting them in. Also I want to see how it will look first.

There is but I didnt put any along the bottom row as I assumed it was for my lights such as Low Coolant Sensor, Oil Light etc etc and didnt pout any over.

So do I need to remove the white backing off the cluster?

no - all bulbs you can get access to without taking off the white backing - you shouldn't ever need to touch that at all. i *think* there are about 5 or so bulbs that need to be covered/changed over - one in the middle, and 2 on either side... the bottom row ones are all for the air bag/abs/lights etc

There's 6 globes that illumintate teh dash - led's arn't actually expensive, just time consuming and a pain in the a*** to make (in my opinion - so fuzion did mine! :-D). Once you have globe covers/sleeves over the 6 globes it should look bluishly green.

what rating resistors are needed for the led's to work off the original circuitry?

as far as i know that'd depend on what particular led you use
