  1. Thought i'd post this up. This mod was done to an 08 Aurion but may work for other model cars as well. It's a cheap simlpe non invasive reversable way to customise your dash colours. With out the need for soldering LED's While LED soldering is still a very low skill level of modding not a lot of ppl are comfortable taking a iron to their beloved dashes. This method/guide makes for a much easier way with a low cost of materials for almost as pro look as LED replacement. I had originally wanted to change the LED's in my dash. (like i had done to my iload) But upon opening it up i seen that i could not get the dash to be multicoloured without extreme bleed. It's a bit more crafty skills than electronic or LED modding. As you can see here our AU dash is a bore.... cold and non enguaging. The new look dash. Not for everyone i know. I used simple A4 coloured plastic folders from the local Bargain shop. cost was around 2bux all up. I picked a bunch of different colours to cover as many combo's as i could. The next thing i did to help out was to build a temp mini back lit light desk. This gives a better idea of the end result. Dash out and strip down. You can see a diffusers plate, this simply catches the light and spreads it evenly though this section. Time to experiment. As you can see simply slipping a different colour behind the dash plate creates a brand new colour. Your pretty much only limited buy your imagination. To create a multi coloured dash just cut and butt join different coloured plastic. The best (reversable way) to hold the plastic inplace is with small tabs of normal clear selotape. You only need to keep the plastic inserts held in place untill the dash is clamped back together. Then the new inserts will stay inplace. Using the same method is multi coloured the Fuel and temp Guages as well. Fitted up and back in the car.
