if you have an e-series you dont change the globes you change the filter paper/plastic to a different color.

I've already tried this i put 6 layers of blue plastic in there and it didnt come through blue at all, it was more of a teal colour that you could bearly even see!

I used the Narva blue leds in the clock and cluster with a white piece of paper as a filter ...also sanded the orange off the needles and painted them white
looks tops at night but a little dull (but still readable)in day light

I had to file the top of the LED flat to make the light spreed out enough tho
