Default 2010 WRX Dash color change

I have been looking around here and have seen people talking about it. But i have not seen any pics on the mod. I want to change the red dash and radio to white. Im guessing i just pull the bulb covers off. But my question is.. with the covers off will the bulbs put off to much heat for the surrounding materials. also will someone post up some pics of the completed mod.. also as a side note im looking to put halo ring and blue demon eyes in the head light.. has anyone done this on the 2010 style wrx.. and if you have please let me kno what i need or if i can get it done anywhere..

I feel as though you should have a heads up as I see so many posts such as this that receive pages of negative feedback. Do yourself a favor and search for each of those items individually, if you still have questions afterwords, post at that point and provide pictures and as much info as possible.

What exactly are you trying to change on your dash, the gauges, the hazard light, the bezels?

Are you planning on pulling your headlights apart or sending them to a company? Details man details

I don't think you can even change the dash color in 08+. you can prove me wrong though!

The 08+ WRX and STi use electroluminescence gauges in the dash. This is a film that glows when an electric current is applied to the it. The only way to change the color is to buy a new film and install it. I have never taken the gauge cluster apart so I have no idea how hard it would be. However, changing the radio and HVAC controls would be easier since these are illuminated by red LEDs. If you know how to solder, you just have to buy the color LED you want and do the swap.
