Talking Cluster lights

So I went ahead and swapped out the old cluster lights for some green ones to match the truck, what you guys think?

lol i have a shit ton of exhaust codes, but the swap was not hard at all, you have to full the bottom panel of the truck under the sterring wheel, which is two screws and pull out,
then you unscrew the plastic covers off your sterring colum, which is four srews nd pull them apart.

then you have 4 screws that hold your cluster, at least for me i have a 96, i didn't unplug anything off the cluster seeing as i have horrible luck, so i just gently pulled the cluster out enough where i can unscrew the little red tabs that hold the light replace the bulb with 194's from superbrightleds.com in whatever color you choose and screw back in. TEST THEM BEFORE PUTTING IT BACK TOGETHER! trust just makes life better, i did it in 40 mins with a help of my buddy holding a flashlight in my driveway lol but in the day time i could do it in half the time.

hopefully today im going to change my climate control light and hopefully put it to green as well if the auto parts can find out the bulb, ill probably make a thread because i tore it apart yesterday and i was there for easily an hour carefully taking things apart to figure out where the light is

Easy- I believe its a type 74....that number comes to mind.

Pull your center bezel out....then I think there are a couple of screws?

I know that you have to pull off the selector knobs and pry one corner out of the panel front (the one with the temperature bar from hot to cold). Or you can pull in the center...but be careful.... that bitch can snap

Then there is the clear plastic diffuser that sends the light out from left to right, that comes out the same way.

Bulb is in center...might need a pair of needle nose to get it out, don't pinch too hard.
