Ok, here we go!

U have to remove your gauges panel


take off the stock gauges sheet


scratch the green color from the gauges sheet back side with a knife


stick to the sheet back the lighting color filter that U prefer (you can find it in the tv and film lighting equipment as rosco or lee filters)




and then...


perhaps you'll need to remove your needles, do it applying hot air


take back the panel gauges to the car and...

when U get the gauges cluster in your hands use a hot air gun, heat the base of the needle and then U can remove it easy.

the black surface is the plastic sheet is no paint, but take care when remove the green one

SWEET!!!! I would like to maybe try doing that.  That is if I am not some how able to get the after market gauges. I still like those quite a bit too. None the less good job and an awesome idea. What inspired you to do that?

Hey Pich,
 That is totally cool. Sounds like that would be an interesting field to get into. Where can I get my hands on some color filters and how much do they cost?
