I don't know if anyone here knows.

But, I have a BA MKII Futura Wagon, it's got the green dash.

Is it possible to order blue globes off Ford, the ones that go in the XR dash, and convert the dash to blue?

Any help appreciated.

Unfortunately its not quite as easy as that.

The BA Clusters (and Territory) use Surface Mount LED's to Illuminate the clusters.

To change the colour would mean that you would need to change each green LED over to blue, which is a bit of a pain in the butt considering they are all surface mount.....

Probably the better alternative is to swap the cluster over.
(This would be expensive at the moment, but hopefully will become cheaper once people start crashing their BAs)....

The clusters are almost plug and play, with the exception that you will need to take you new cluster to Ford to program up with your Kilometers, and options (such as Traction control / ABS for speed sensing, diff ration, etc etc)



VE Calais V8, IQ, HSV instruments and brembos fitted.
IQ, IPC, BCM all hacked and programmed without TECH2 :)
