I was wondering if anyone on this site has done an LED dash/gauge lighting change? I want to change the standard illumination from the factory orangish color to more of a purple color in the area that shows the speed/gas/rpm and then warm/cold control, low/high control and vent cotrol.

If anyone has a seen a write up for an XB or pictures that would be great!

Thanks so much!

I totally have to agree with this. I have a salsa red box with red interior lights and I want to swoop out those ulgy amber colored LEDs with something red. I'm going for a theme here, get me?

A write up on how to get to each light, and a place to buy new ones (in various colors) would be a great help!

im pretty sure that the orange part you are talking about is actually the gauge cover itself. the Led behind it is white, but the paper that shows the gas/rpm is actually orange itself. If you wanted to change the white part (speed), its pretty easy. just take off the cover and take a sharpie and color over the led bulb. it will turn the white part whatever color you want. just dont do it for the orange part or you will get a weird, ugly color lol.

I didnt find anythign over there, scionevolution.com is now scionevolution.org. Replacing the LED's isnt that bad like I said but you should know how to solder some small $hit and have a decent soldering iron.
