    Are you talking about your current speedo guages? I know you can get a different LED lighting so they will be pink at night.. or you can take the dash apart (which isnt hard) and paint it. if you need more help just shoot me a pm.

    I believe the gauges you will need to replace the led's in the back with pink ones. It requires a little bit of soldering.

    In regards to smoking the taillights. I think the all black look is nice, especially at night.

    yea for your guages if u want to change it you have to change the LED's in the back. there is a how to on clubsciontc.com. but that is the only way to do it. and im not sure if they make a pink led but there are some red ones that look pink. you have to look around. some people will do the swap for you for a price

    I want to change mine to a blue, also. I'm planning on going with a Silver/Blue/Black look, somewhat.

    It's not that difficult to change the LEDs in the back of the gauges, but I haven't done it myself. I know a guy in the concord area that does it, I was gonna ask him to do mine as soon as I decided on a color. It looks so nice when it's done.

    Hey, guys and gals I'm looking to change out the dash leds in my girlfriend's car. Does anyone have the link for the DIY? I cant find that much. I guess Ill head over to clubsciontc like mentioned above. I pretty much know how to do it on my rsx, but since Ill be doing someone else's car, I really want to know what to expect. Any help would be appreciated.

    SquallHeart did mine. Check out the pictures in my profile. The pink red line is still actually stock red. It just looks different next to the purple. Hit him up!
