just wondering if anyone has modded their ba cluster?

i want to put white dials and change the green lights to white or something (and maybe the rest of the lights, heater, radio etc)

anyone done that before?

some place is asking 240 for white dials installed :shock:

what's that company? i want to change my lights over to blue like the XR's.

talk to ASL about your centre console, they can give you a plug and play card for $310 that changes all your lights to blue...i can't remember if it affects the screen though. and i am looking to upgrade my shifter to a BA unit with the leather gear boot etc and i think that will change your lights to white on your transmission.

In terms of cluster lights you cant change them as they are small smd leds soldered to the board

Buy the dials or an fpv cluster or xr cluster

the best set of ba/bf dials were on a BF fairlane ghia, was an etched brushed steel look, if/when i get a bf/a those are the dials i would get.

shame i dont have a picie, they were very nice.

hmmm i had a feeling they were those leds :x might see if i can replace them myself

how would diff colours on the lcd effect it? and is it possible to get diff colour perspex strips then the standard blue?

back to the dials, has anyone changed theirs? and is it just the same to do as all the others?

You will need a SMD soldering iron to remove them
