as far as I know the bulbs are white but there´s little plastic or some sort of film on the gauge face itself that is green. I´m planning on changing my gauges too so I´m in the same boat as you are question wise.

I got a set of really cool white face guages from EBAY for my 94 GT and they can be either green or blue froma switch. They look really nice too!!!

Seth: Check out my cardomain site and look at my gagues there. They are made by U.P.R. Auto. They run about 30.00 I think. They have an "indiglo" look to them at night. I will post pics. of that when I get the chance. I really like the gauges though....and I painted my needles on it red to see them better against the white background. ;-) Glad to see another 1st Genner on here! :-D

If you go to www.escortpower.com and go to downloads there r some there. Im doing the same but I have been told that if you just put the white gauges in and take out the stock ones you get bad shadows on the gauges at night. I am trying to find out how I can fix this problem so if you have any ideas I would like to here them.

HI pplz !

Hey, How are you doin' ?

I have an Escort Lx and I have replaced the original bulbs in the instrument cluster with some blue one...But, after i did it, i found out that the color in the instrument cluster was coming from the gauges themselves and not the light...DAMN IT ! :) hehehehe...so I'm now looking for some after market gauges, but they all seems to be blue tinted...( I've looked on www.procarparts.com) .....so i would like to know if you'd know some after market gauge that are not already tinted .....cauz i dont want the blue tint they have chosen!!!

You dig me?

heheh tanx for you time pplz
ciao,
Maxxx

Yeah the green colour is from the face(made of green plastic) not the bulbs. I had NR white faces(also of green plastic). See my review of them in the review section.
I tried red bullbs but it turned out too dark. :cry:

Try that and see what you find. You can always email Adam for any custom stuff you have in mind. Hope it helps. Did you check out the pictures on my site? They are the same kind he carries...and I really like them. :wink:
