1. Not really, the 'white' is painted on, not transaprent like the demist button for example.

2. Sure.

If you're electronically minded, it'll be easy. If not pull a bulb out, and check the Repco catalog to see if they have a matching fit.

To use two wire them in parallel, be sure to recalculate the resistor you need.

Flash???

You can get flashing LEDs, but usually only in red. and their flash rate isn't adjustable, so they'd flash together. If you want diff colours, diff flash rates, you'd need to build a flasher circuit.

id go with a flasher circut mate, cos if your never gunna get 2 flashing leds to flash in sync using the built in s**t electrics, thay'll allways fall in and out of sync. so grab what ever leds you want and run em off a flasher circus like mr mine said. :) good luck
