Yeah kinda, I am actually going to leave the needles red and make the numbers blue. maybe put white up in the dome so I got the whole americana thing going! I ordered like 10 of them from digi for like 9$. I have not took the truck apart yet so I am not sure what the lights are under the center console.

took about an hour. pulled the cluster, again, and changed the LEDs to white for the numbers, stripped the needles of the orange and painted the backsides white, and then put blue LEDs behind them. All the idiot lights are white, high beams are still blue, turn signals are blue, and changed the gas light to red not yellow.
