One thing to take note of when putting leds in. if your intending to go blue, it wont work in the boxcars. it would be blue light passing though a orange filter so you can imagine how that will turn out.

The yellow digits in the instrument cluster are quite permanent. I've tried bathing the panels in pure UV light (used for etching PCB's) for two weeks straight and got no colour fading at all. But luckily the instrument cluster out of an XG commercial s-pak is exactly the same but has white digits ready to go.

Once you have white digits you can LED light them any colour you want
