no problem. yeah the same applies from 94-04. The only difference would be the Termi clusters being that they dont use bulbs.

it is a blue film with the yellow incandescent bulbs. thus when they are lit creates the green color.

Reps for that guide. I think I'm going to try to do that swap next weekend. It would make my dash match my headunit.

Ther is a blue film over the back of the plastic gauge sheet. Since you are going blue you can just throw in some blue leds, but im just gonna throw this out there. This is the steps i used on my 94 to go orange or any other color you can buy leds. With the clear cover removed from your cluster with the car cool turn the car on but not started. take pictures of all your needles for refernece when you put it back together. Then remove your needels from the cluster and slowly remove the black gauge plastic but be careful not to rip it because its glued on. I riped mine a little but you cant see it once its done. Then get some laquer thinner and damp a paper towel and on the BACK of your gauge wipe over the green film. Go slowly and be sure to remove it all. Then installation is the exact reverse. Now your numbers will be clear and you can put whatever color bulb you want in there. Hopefully that wasnt too confusing. lol
