there has been many posts on changing the colour to blue but on EF's and EL's, i just did mine.
I think the only thing you can do is "Have a Go!" take the dash off and check out the lights and see if some led's will fit!

just chucking blue LED's behind the standard fascia wont do jack s**t.

I wouldn't have a clue what its out of. didn't even think they came out like that. Last time i looked in a XG it had the exact same cluster that came in the sedans. it was a low spec one tho.

HI
i wouldnt buy anything off that guy on ebay(cruizin central)
he is a bodge.i brought a eb facia on ebay when i got it it was just printed paper glued to the original facia and 3 days after i fitted it to the car the paper started to peel off.
when i emailed him and told him it peeled off he told me to just buy some glue and glue it back on....(ripp off )

but i found a guy also on ebay he does good facias for ea to el
he is speed graphic instument design .. you do a ebay search for white facia eb falcon and you should be able to find it .
i brought mine for $75 .
the good thing is he will do custom colours for you if you want ..

Heyo,

Being new to cluster modification, there were a few bugs to work out. The first 3 EA-ED cluster that we sold on ebay had paper inserts as it has nice matt finish, but the glue we used was the wrong type for this, so we asked the customers to send the clusters back and we replaced them with plastic dial faces and used a much stronger glue. We have been using this new technique almost a year now on 100's of clusters and kits with no problems. Customer service is very high on our priority, if a customer is unhappy for whatever reason we will repair replace or refund. This is reflected in over a 1000 feedbacks, all of which have been positive.

here is a picture of what our white dials look like:

<img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y65/one4sorrow/ebay%20photos/EAnewkit2.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">

getting back to Fordv8power's original question, we have also on sale a set of dial faces with white writing, these were removed from a cluster that had a damaged glass and are original unmodified Ford panels.

Rene.

Nope, there is no easy or cheap way unfortunately. Like said above, your best bet is to find the ute cluster which are rare as rocking horse s**t.

All the stuff on Ebay is crappy.

No. Ones from an XG are the same as the EB/ED with tacho except the writing is white - not orange.

Thanks for all your responses.

Hey cruizin, do you have a shop or something I could come and have a look at your stuff for myself?
