RED lit Cluster in 15mins.....

Post by 6(sic)6 » Tue Nov 20, 2007 12:56 am

I was dicken around with my gauge cluster tonight some. I had it out and open to reflow some solder joints and I decided to "TRY" something.


I still had a can of red spray tint I used a year or so ago on some sidemarkers.

Sprayed it on the stock bulbs, made sure the contacts were still clean, and installed them.

If you do this do so AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!! I have no idea if the bulbs will burn off the tint when they get real hot and I dont wanna be responsible for burning your neon down....

Odd's are it will burn off the tint.

I used hi temp paint on some bulbs in my Monte, after a few weeks they weren't blue any more.

they have like plastic slip on covers to change the color they look good for a little while but they fade just like the paint does.
