Default HVAC and Radio console WHITE LIGHT

Hey all,

For those of you who did HVAC, Radio and console light conversions (Green to Red, etc.) how do the bulbs look like without the condom covers? Has anyone tried? Because I think a white backlight would be awesome in my WRX, I may have to paint the bulbs but who knows maybe I don't.

Also, what does HVAC stand for?

the bulbs look yellowish white just like christmas tree white color. They're not super white like an LED. It looks ok, definitely brighter than before i put the condoms on, but you'll never get the instrument panel to match because there's a green film on it.

Yeah, and when you remove the green film, it shines a really ugly yellowish orange.

I customed my red leds in and that was it.

When my Defis were white, I bought white LEDs too to place inside them. However, converting them to red is way easier than converting them to white.

if you want the LED bulbs for a great price in any color.. go to this web site. http://autolumination.com/194.htm

I purchased the blue 74 LEDs for the HVAC and they look good. and they are only 2.50 and 2.00shipping..
you need 2 so 7.00 dollars for both shipped. I recommend it if you want color changes in your dash
