Alright I didn't see this anywhere so I'm going to ask. I was wondering how the gauges light up? LIke is there a few amber color bulbs that make them light up that orangeish color? What I wanna do is some how get my gauges to glow blue to match my car :) Anyone have any ideas or looked into this yet?

Mine seem brownish/yellowish the whole time there never like white. Still in anycase does anyone know for sure if its the bulb or if its the actual gauge face or if its the bulb? Has anyone even takin the thing off where the gauges are to look or no? If they are white then that would pretty much say that its the bulb. I really wanna look into this if I have to I'll do the looking for everyone unless this is already checked into.

I have not taken out the dash to find out specificly what bulbs are in there but take a look at THIS site. Page down to dash lights all the way at the bottom. I am not sure if these will fit but it might be worth a look.

Bulbs I think there 509T but dont quote me on this. There the closest thing that I can find to them. The dash is really easy to take apart belive me in like 2 mins I figured it out and had it laying on my computer desk.

1st removed the silver cover that covers the radio and ac controls

2nd there is one bolt above the radio that hold the cover on for the gauges.
you have to look above the radio and up.

3rd pop the cover off

If you want blue gauges pretty cheap with out having to replace the bulbs go to your Honda dealer like I did and get the blue covers cost me about 8 bucks. yes the Honda dealer. The older Hondas have blue lights.....

4th you have 3 bolts and one connector in the back.
very easy

I put blue LED's in mine...it makes a big difference! On ebay, they are less than 20 bucks, and 10 minutes to install.
