Just Switch out my white bulbs for my gauges to red, and changed climate control buttons to red, still have to do Clock and "1234" on climate control. What you think..They look more red in person. Next project is Painting my 94-97 tails to 98-01 tails all red. Finally found paint.




In other news, my brother just bought a '97 Silver LS...should be joining TI soon.

The hardest part with the climate lights is they are a pain to get off, just take your time and you should be able to do it pretty easily. Check out the step-by-stepStep-by-step
from mystikalstriker and i used legal folder divider tabs, worked great. Next onto the clock...

the clock has a purple tint cover to it. the lcd's actually emit green, and the purple tint filters it so it comes out looking white-ish in the end. your best bet would be to put whatever color tint you want oN TOP of the clock cover, not behind it.

i put a some red vinyl like mystikalstriker did to his climate control and mine looks pretty good its not as red as everything else but its not pink or any other color. ill put a picture up tomorrow and show you guys. And the only time you cant read it is when the sun is directly on it and then you can use a hand to block the sun so you can read fine.

Can anyone verify this? In this article: http://www.geocities.com/mt3c/DIY_Amber_Clock.html

It shows it working properly, just wondering if anyone else has tried this and gotten the wrong color?

WARNING.... when i did my CC i didn't realize how important it was to strip oNLY the EXACT outline of the little man and arrows on the buttons. Almost immediately all the black surrounding it stripped on my buttons and now there is just a big white square. I gave up after the first attempt on one button, but it looks like complete sh*t now....


So...anyone know where i can order new buttons for teh Climate control?

how did you get that ring effect so perfect aroudn the gauges? Is it just good taping off?Also how did you apply the red tape to the clock? I've heard that its hard to tint because of a purple tint thats on the cover... You said you used 'ducky' tape from walmart, was it just a single layer to get that deep red color? I tried using a red tinted plastic but the color ended up looking washed out, i was thinking about double layering it, but i woudl like to try whatever you did as it looks good.

Oh and one last thing...when painting the needles did you paint the whole thing, just the bottom, or just the top? And what kinda paint?

Thats got em all. I'm just wondering about the clock, i've heard people say that its actually a greed LED with a pruprle tint over it, so putting red vinyl over it makes it look more pink than anything.... just wondering if someone could tell us how it went for them and how they did it?
