    Are you talking about the needles? I left those with the factory red. and changed the P,N,D,4,3,2,L in the same blue.

    I'm pretty sure it's in reference to the climate controls, any idea how to change those to get the uniformed look? I think many have said that it's a lot harder to change those.

    How long did it take you? Was it fairly easy? Thanks in advance and great job! Looks really clean!

    iT TOOK ABOUT 1-1.5 HOURS START TO FINISH.FAIRLY EASY THE HARDEST BEING TAKING EVERYTHING APART.THE HU/CLIMATE CONTROLS SEEMED VERY DIFICULT TO TAKE APART AND CHANGE I THINK I'M GOING TO REPLACE THE WHOLE THING WITH A 7" AFTERMARKET DVD/CD TO MATCH THE COLOR AND CHANGE THE CLOCK TO BLUE AS WELL.GOOD LUCK I WILL BE POSTING THE LINKS WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON BOTH TOMORROW.

    So if I'm reading it right, you'll want to match the HU to the orange or the climate controls? I wouldn't mind doing the guages and climate controls and have the clock left orange. That wouldn't bother me. I'd like to get the orange changed as much as possible to the cool blue. So much more peaceful in my opinion...

    yeah the radio has about 30 LED's and teh circuit board is alot smaller.Also to take apart the radio looks like it's a Bitch.....So I was thinking if I could find a Double Din radio that had the blue lights in it it might look better.

    Once you get started and remove the first led you'll get the hang of it.Also if you mark(Sharpie) the ones that you need to change before you do it you won't mess up.

    The radio is actually pretty easy to take apart. I could see maybe getting the button lights done but the display screen thing might be another story. I have a silver one & the black one & mixed silver buttons on the black one & the same black buttons back on the silver one but the aftermarket double din would be easier & most likely much better than the oem.
