So anyone knows where could I get those green plastic cups to slide on the bulbs , or would it be easier just to paint them ?If that whatkind of paint ?
Thanx for the time !

Well, don't quote me on this but I haven't tried it. A buddy of mine has done this to lightbulbs. He takes the engine enamel paint, and just light goes over the bulb. Not covered, just so that it makes a colored tint when the light is on. Plus the engine enamel is high-heat so the heat from the light won't effect it. Let me know what you come up with-

just find some of that liquid rubber shit, that when you dip things into it, it coats whatever you dipped, and then it dries.. that might work.

i tried all of that.

Heres what worked. Go to a local crafts store, and buy blue colored cellophane. i.e. blue and amber will make green.

Put the cellophane between the gauge faces, and the plastic support pods that house the gauge.

if you need some, paypal me $7.00 for shipping. paypal addy is
