Has anyone done the Blue LED mod posted on the DIY sites? I'm thinking about doing it. Obviously the OBC and other stuff is more of a problem. This is what I got.

It's sorta green.

I hope to make it look a little more like this.

I think I'll be able to do it by changing the bulbs in the OBC to white LED. Regular bulbs go yellow when you dim them, which is why it's green.

Yep, open it up, take the orange plastic out replace it with a color you like. it's going to be hit and miss though. I won't be easy to get the right shade. I used a couple layers of blue film in place. I have some other ideas which may work a bit better. I'll let you guys know when I try them.
