Hey all you with the crapy E-series clusters. I have worked out a sick as trick to get
Sick colors for your dash With out wiring up leds, it's simple as.

First:Indicators.
Get the cluster face pulled off and the take the neddles off, then the backing, Now you shoud see
Green Acrilic plastic pull that out and you should see the bulb. Then Grab the backing and get some colored paper or make some with a texta(i used a blue bingo bopa) the cut out a square to fit over the little arrow on the back NOT the front of the backing And put back together and cheack to see if you like it.

Second:Dials
This will only work if your dials are white If not grab a cluster from a XG ute(as i did and it went strait into my New ED wagon) and then pull it all apart and do the same as the indicators but be careful as it has to be cut spot on to fit over the clear filter on the back of the backing. Then test out.

Last:Needles
Simple grap some commodore needles and put a very small led under it.

As for LCD(high Series)cluster i have no idair how to change the color but i think theres a filter in it some were

im pretty sure they got a yellow light filter behind the dials and LCD screen etc so no matter what colour light is put though it, itll only allow the same colour as the filter though?
