Side project Sunday? Whatever, it sounds good to me!
I'd been planning to do this for a long time, and finally decided to give it a shot. Years ago on my gear indicator I painted over the orange with gold, because I thought it looked "cool." Well, it didn't match my instrument cluster overlay, my HVAC overlay, or even my stereo.
These things are easy to disassemble at least. I scraped the gold off with a sharp knife, and used red electrical tape where it was originally white.
The lens cover over the bulb was blue with the top painted black, so I used really light sandpaper and sanded the black off then polished it. I tried it out without the cover, but I didn't like selected gear being orange, it blended too well with the red. This will do until I replace the brighter 2723 bulb with a white LED. I also painted the housing part with chrome paint, not sure why they left it white, the chrome spreads the light further with the reflection.
Either way, it looks much better, it matches, and I love it!
