Gauge Lighting help

I am looking to change the gauge lights in my 2005 Tacoma.
I would like the main color to be white and the needles to glow blue (speedway blue to be exact)

I live in PA and i'm looking for advice on the best way to accomplish this.
should i do it myself? if so, how many lights would i need?

and is there anyone in the eastern PA area that does Tacoma gauge lighting.?
please, it needs to be a professional job, not a $50 job by someone in his side street garage.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

you will need to ship the cluster to him as the truck will still run you just won't have indication for anything.

1.) Search function- there are a few different threads on this already.
2.) There are no specific hues available. LEDs come in general colors; white, amber, yellow, blue, red, green, and purple.

Simple question:

Can you solder?

hey, what are you trying to say?!!

tell you what, i'll mark up my price to $250 and send you a pic of a nice workshop i found off the internet if it will make you feel better... i can guarantee i will do just as good, if not better, job than some "professional". soldering is really not all that hard...

i did it myself in my bedroom. its nothing that only a professional can do. if you spend more than. www.oznium.com has lights.

very easy. not worth the money to pay someone else to do it unless you are terrible with soldering.

Check out my pictures. I like my setup in my speedway blue taco. Any of these lighting experts can get you set up in no time. And the last thing you gotta worry about is quality, we are passionate about our trucks! If you don't believe me, check out their retro headlights. If that's not legit, I dunno what is! Hopefully gonna get some soon here.

SUUUUPER easy to do. I did it myself in my kitchen. Took about 45 mins and im not that great at soldering. To get the needles blue, take em off, sand the paint off, paint the back whatever color you want. white works the best.
