uh, yeah dude, they should just plug right up with no problems. yeah, just be sure to lubricate the connections with 10w-40 motor oil before you plug them in. oh and blue backlighting with green lcds will look hot!!!

Dash lights as in what?
headlight knob? ATX shifter plate? Gauges? What are you refering to?

Inorder to get the headlight switch to glow what ever color you want, you will need to sand down the green which is described in the LED swap tutorial ... i'm sure you could put a different bulb and it would work.

if your an ATX, you could swap out the bulb in the shifter plate, that will work as well.

If your talking about the gauges to be honest i don't know, i was actually going to research this soon as try to mod it as well.

No Problem man. I just changed the color of my whole gauge cluster LCD screen and all, it was simple, I didn't use any resistors I used the stock bulbs, and followed the how to on changing the LCD screen, and I followed somethign I read a while back on removing the green on the gauges and just covered the numbers on the cluster with the same tape that I used on the LCD it turned out ok. It will hold me over till, I buy my gauge overlay. All of the colors on the dash are colored plastic except for the speed, RPM's, temp, and gas gauges, these you can remove the colors from. The rest of the lights that light up on the gauge cluster have an actual color piece of plastic that i couldn't find a way to take the color off of.

Hope this helps, but if you are doing LED's in your gauge cluster then you will need to do resistors.
