Dash Switch Illumination

Any idea how many dash switches are illuminated by LEDs and which are bulbs?..

Ive managed to kill the LED for my sidelight switch (probably connected it in reverse[xx(][^]), so Im now fancying a Vee-dub stylee dash (red with bits of blue!).

Also, anyone managed to change the colour of the heater controls illumination??

Heater illumination is bulbs, switches are LED's. I sorta managed to change the colour on the icons for the heater by dismantling and emerying off the green paint from behind - wouldn't recommend it though.

HOw'd yu dismantle the heater bits then?

This is once they are removed from the dash using allen keys and screwdrivers

Heater icon panels you need to split open with a stanley knife once you've got them out. Tricky, and damn difficult to remove just the green paint from the backing too.

Ah...Stanley knife is it??

I was trying with a small screwdriver ages ago, but stopped as was getting frightened of snapping it!


Erm, whatelse other than the green paint do yu take off, however inadvertantly!?

it's a sod of a job. What you will find is that the icon plate is clear, with black paint on 'outlining' the icons. Then, you have white paint over the clear icon spaces, and greem paint over the back of the white. You need to take off the green, but not black or white. Probably a lot easier to design your own custom icons and put it on OHP film.

that's a good idea. I'd be interested in seeing anyone's "home-made" icons!

i have changed the colour of all the switches to red with 3mm 2.5v leds. i used ultra brite ones to make them stand out more. i used a piece of red film to change the colour of the clock and as for the icons. well after cracking into the plastic i used the point of a craft knife and a pin to scratch off the green and white into the exact shape of the icon then used more red film behind the whole panel. it took a while but was worth it. will try to take a few pictures.

i had some left over window tint so i used a small piece of that but it should work if u used some acetate with colour printed on it or some colourd plastic from a craft shop. oh and tried to get a picture but its too dark for the full effect. but got pics of the switches.
