Can't come up with anything using search.

The blue filters are discolored. Can they be replaced? Any known source? How about colored bulbs? What are the correct bulbs for the instrument panel and the rally-pack?

Thanks for the help.

I bought new ones for mine from NPD. They made a huge difference in visibility.

Sorry the bulb are number 1895, they are clear. NPD offers the bulb covers in a few colors, I kept the blue since I was going to keep the factory radio in the dash.

I opted to take the blue covers out of mine. Right now, I'm liking the white lights.

If they are just dirty, get some Blue magic plastic polish. Carefuly take off the lens by cutting the melted tab off the back side of the metal. I used the polish and my dremel tool with a felt wheel on it at slooooow speed and very light pressure (to much and you'll heat it up and disort the plastic). carefully clean and polish with the blue magic till the lens is clear again and they will look and function like new when done. Use some hot melt glue to reinstall to the metal panel. ::

You should be able to buy the blue lights at most mustang parts magazines. I took the blue bulbs out and the instrument cluster is a lot brighter. I am glad that I did it too. No body will know the difference unless they are in the car with you at night. The blue bulbs only serve one purpose of changing the lighting to green. Good luck.
