yep, i got two bags for each. I believe there are 10 covers per bag. Get the extras as they are not expensive and you might rip one or two covers.

A tip for doing this mod, before you take off the cluster, turn the headlight on, it will light up all the bulbs behind the cluster, 1 minute or so will do the trick. This way you can take the stock green cover off a lot easier since the bulbs are all warmed up.

Thanks for all the tips -cant wait to use them-..but..I am not doing the radio.. and I want to change the cluster.. *solder the leds... I just want to confirm that the led doesnt get affected by the green film. Also.. How many bulbs are in the cluster?

And just for reference, what size and how many bulb condoms are there in the gauge cluster?


*Also.... for all those that did the blue bulb condoms and scraped off the green film... did the blue come out nice? I know it isnt as good as the LED's ( thats why i am pushing toward that ) but just want to know in case I need to remove the green film regardless.

It would still be cool to get answers on led's or bulb and condom quantity and sizes, as bankheist ( kevin ) is a pro on the older imprezas..hasn't done 02+ rex's yet..

mine was kinda like orangy white on my hvac.. i wanna turn mine white.. would blue condoms do the trick? i read that if u use one cover the color would be faint.. in my case.. faint blue which will hopefully look whitish.. anyone have any clue if this would work? i dunno where to get the covers here.. so i might just order a set from partsexpress..

so lets say i wanna make mine white or blueish white.. think i can do it without scraping the green layer? anyone have a pic of what the gauge cluster looks like on the inside? i wanna know what i`ll be working with before i begin..
i think i can change the colours myself.. but i need detailed info as to what the cluster looks like on the back and inside (bulb place and bulb cover size and amount)

also what to look out for? and things that i need to know (the NO NO stuff)

thanks

Dood.. I am still waiting for that same info.. I think to get the truest blue or color you need to scrape off the green film. but also apply a blue film to replace.. because the bulb condoms will look green/blue like the crappy reverse indiglo gauges...

Bankheist is the man who has been doing this type of stuff.. but the poor guy's car has been outta commision for a while.. so obviously our gauges arent a concern of his... which I don't blame him. Wish there was someone else though.
