    speedo backlight

    I want to change my speedo (not swim trunks) etc's backlight to a nice blue instead of the standard yellowy orange. Any ideas on where I can get the blue lights from and whether it is easy to install?

    Cheers

    what clocks have you got ie 120/140/160 and what year are they from as some clocks cannot be converted due to a stupid yellow filter

    Your speedo will probably have a yellow filter behind it meaning if you convert the bulbs to blue LED's you will have green LED's lol.

    But red seems to go throught the filter quite well

    Thanks for the info. Don't really fancy green backlight. What are the blue dials like from LMF? Do you have to add different bulbs to make it shine blue?
