Take a bulb out... go to wal-marts and get the matches, cheap. You might want to change the color: blue, amber, red.

The number of bulbs you have depends on the model of your car and the options you got. Not all the bulb holder/bulbs will be installed. Yes, they're 194s.

When I did mine... I added a Chrome overlay (with Betty Boop figures [metal tie-tack pins]) as the Bezel... 2 turn signals in Green; 5 gage lights in Amber; 10 bottom in Amber or Red (depending upon function)... and added to holders (from a salvaged unit) to the exteme left&right for my add-on FogLights in Blue.
Once you pull the Cluster... it's the best time to play & configure what you want.

got a pic?
No... but you should be able to imagine it. You really do not want a copy... rather to customize what suits you / your colors / your image.
You can get the Bezels (and everything else) on Ebay.

My 93 Escort Wagon is (was) dark blue inside and out... so I was going with Blue gage lights. But, I modified it to put in ZX2 S/R Leather seats in Medium Prarie Tan... and matched this with ArmRest, GearShift nob, Ebrake handle, floor mats, and Cargo cover. So, I went with Amber gage lights.
Actually, I have 5 Instriment Clusters... just in case I get tired of one. But, I have stuck the Betty one... with her skit blowing up, 2 different figures on each side... and a "Man in the Moon" (woman on the moon) oval (left) to balance the OdometerReset button (right).
I did not modify the bottom warning lights... except the extreme left and right for the Fog Lamp on Indicators. The color lights that I chose were the same as the films... simply to give additional HighLight.

Yes... I think it looks nice (but that is just my opinion).
