Default Custom Guages, HVAC, and Accessory lighting on a 95

I decided I didn't like neon green lighting. It wasn't very good looking, it was bad on my night vision, and I just feel the need to mod various things. So I dove headfirst into this, without having a clue how anything worked. And I'm pretty happy with what I learned and what I got out of it.

Here are pics. I would like to note that the lighting looks a lot more red than it does in the pictures, its just that I couldn't wait for perfect dark
(they're all very blurry, I'm sorry)


Guages:




HVAC:



Overall:


I will see if I can dig up some comparison shots, I'm sure I have some on the computer somewhere.

Another cool thing is, that this red doesn't clash with my blue highlights, because everything looks white during the daytime, because I colored the back of all the translucent parts, and not the front.




Yes, I know that the left side of the tach is dim. I have yet to find a replacement bulb, but it will happen.

Whaddya think?

thanks all, does anyone happen to know the part number for the small bulbs in the guages? The big one is 194(R). I think maybe its 34 or 36??? I was just eyeing it up, really...

HVAC was PITA for me, the rest was pretty easy. no one knows the smaller bulb number for the guages? I'll have to take my cluster to advanced auto, i guess, and take the bulb base in and match it up...

Thanks for the comments

Well you pull the trim pieces off. Then in the back of the hvac, disconnect the antenna and the wires to the back the radio/cd player/whatever u have, then you pull the wires from the back of the temperature control unit. There are 2 sets of wire plugs and also the mechanical piece that connects to the hot/cold control. Just pull the metal wire thing out of it. Then remove the whole temperature control unit out by removing the 4 screws.

Once it is out you need to unscrew the 6 screws and remove the back white plastic piece. Then remove the front black piece. There are just tabs. The knobs will also come off. Then on the center white piece you need to pull the circuit board off of it, it is also held on by tabs,

Then you see the 3 bulbs. Remove the condoms, and paint.

Put back together.
