Anybody changed backlights on dashboard?

Post by Bunford » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:19 pm

I have got someone pencilled down to change the backlights on my main tachometers. However, just wondering if anyone has changed the orange backlight on the air con/heater control unit, headlight rotary lnov etc?

Anyone know of any tutorials or anything out there on how to DIY it?

Not done it myself (it’s on my to do list) but it’s totally possible to do. Tbh, if I was changing the speedo lights I would want the rest of the orange replacing too.
