Cool dash lighting

I'm looking to change all my accessories to blue. I've done my engine compartment and that was a snap. Now I want to change out my dash lights. Where would i find replacement bulbs in edmonton and how much of a hassel would it be to install?

There is a thread on this exact topic in Interior/Exterior Care forum as well as several times before in the Car Audio/Video forum. It's quite simple really.

Sorry I did not post a link. I just read it in passing. I do remember finding it by doing a search on LED lighting. Apparently, any Subaru mini light (eg. guage cluster lights) can be changed to LEDs w/ the appropriate resistor placed in line. I will try to search for the thread. I should have known better than to just post:
DO A SEARCH.

i have done it. its not worth it. they will turn out bright in some places and and dimmer than stock overall.

but if you want to do it all you hae to do is order some blue leds from radio shack with some resistors, (330 i think, but double check on that) and solder them in the place of the lights.

but i will reiterate, its not worth the trouble. i ended up pulling out mine the next day.
