Dash light

I tried "search" but no clear answer.

I replaced the bulbs in the dash with White LEDs, and there I had,

bright blue color.

Is there really NO WAY to get "White" color with stock dash face?

What makes the white color to turn into blue?

Is it the film? if so, have anyone actually tried removing it?

One more question..

I remember reading a thread about changing the needle to red color.

I can't clearly remember how he did that.

Is there any way that I can make the needle really Red (and bright)?

Won't the painting on the needle make it deemer?

there is a blue filter you need to remove that in order for it to be white.

First of all you really cant get a true white with LED's because its impossible. You can come close, but there is always going to be a tint of blue.

As to acheive the blue color you need to swap the bulbs in the back with blue leds

The needles can't be repainted, if you want red needles you are going to need to swap the whole gauge face with an 01-02 cluster

oh yeah and no one is getting owned here obviously all you need to do is remove the filter so you can get white beam to shine across, case closed.

removing the filter wont make your LED light up REALLY White. read Knightrider's thread and he even mentioned that it still has a lil bit of blue hue on his conversion. you might get some white of some part, but it won't be even overall.
