Gauge cluster LED swap

Yep another one. I know there are thousands out there. But out of all the ones I have found on google I have only found 2 that are done the way I want to do mine. Which is to still have the red markings for the redlines and the red on the heat controls. I want a white overlay other then the black. But all the white overlays I have found are elglow/indigo stuff. Which wouldnt work for changing the LEDs. I want to go blue/deep blue. Here is the best write up I have seen thus far

Is there a way to get an overlay that is white, and it have the proper redline or will I have to go with like an SVT style (which I have not found).

Also which of these LEDs would be best for this application.

Any help will be great. Even if its a post I overlooked on google.

:/ only ones i see are reverse/el glow overlays. Im hoping to find one thats just a white replacement maybe. Ive thought about trying to modify my el glow overlay but i dont think it will work.

I don't think the 194 series will fit behind the speedo. Maybe behind the hvac controls, I remember those were bigger than the ones behind the gauge cluster. I have 74-xHP3 from SBLeds behind my cluster in warm white. A few dim spots but not noticeable unless you look for them. I'll upload a pic to photobucket and paste it here in a sec, I'm actually in my car now.

Ok here you go. You can see one of the dim spots between 110 and 130 mph. Like I said, hardly noticable.

And I have a WLED-xT-CB in warm white for the gear select. Output isn't stellar, but slightly better than the stock incandescent. Color looks OEM, the camera just makes it look like a darker green.

I'm trying to get some better leds in the trac control, rear defrost, and foglight buttons. I made a thread about it a while ago, but life got in the way. I need to figure out how to add some resistors, new leds blew the second I tried to turn them on. I want a brighter green for the symbols, red for the defrost indicator, yellow for the trac control off indicator, and white for the foglight indicator. You can use any color you want for those, the symbols and indicators are colorless, the lights themselves are colored. I also plan on getting a bright led for the OD off indicator for the cluster. I can hardly see it in daylight. Again, that should be a 74 series. I'm thinking a brighter green for that so the color doesn't get washed out like if I used a white.

Well i got the 194 from that write up thread. So im not sure. Ive seen so many people go blue and the whole cluster was blue. I just dont want that. I want to have my amber needles and redlines still. Mines 5 speed. I def like the way yours looks. Just more blue to match my a/f gauge and soon boost and a few other gauges.
