Changing color of the abl around gauges.

Has anyone been able to change the leds in the gauges? I started to pull it apart but stopped when I had to take the needles off. I already changed the color in the doors and added to dash.

No that has not been done. When you take it apart some more you will see that it is a bunch of tiny LEDs that are soldered to the circuit board. If you search you will see that someone on here tried it but gave up.

dont do it

i did that on my cbr 1000rr gauge cluster. and it looks great. wouldnt recommend it at all. takes alot of skill. soldering on the circuit board wrong can mess it up and you dont want to fry your cluster. and IF you do do it sucessfully and it messes up 3 months later due to a "warrantable" mishap. GM wont cover it either because they know you have been in it. WOULDNT RECOMMENT it and good luck trying to find out what type of lights they use on that motherboard. the ones i found for my bike for like $0.10 a light. but it took me 4 months to find out the type of lights let alone find somebody that sells them.

my advise is wait till your warranty is up on the electronics lol or find somebody who wrecked there car and you just buy a used cluster off of them.
