Finally I installed a stereo in the car (The sound of the STi motor is beautiful but I need more) :D

Also I change the HVAC bulbs to red, I really hate this controls in green. Here is a pic.



The car looks 100 times better with the HVAC in red. :)

No need to replace the bulbs just remove the green condom (or cover) replace it with a red one and you're done. A 30 minute work taking all the precautions. :D

Damn, it's costing me about 3 times the price of the things for shipping. Oh well at least I will have them in a couple days and don't have to try and find them some place locally.

Another option that other people are using is painting with a red permanent marker, I don't know if this method is better than a cover.

I did the clear key entry light today

Here's a pic



I'll take another picture tonight

Did you color the circle thingy, or pull it off and color the bulb "condom" ?

Why, oh why, couldn't SOA spend 40 cents to do this for us?

Shouldn't this be in Electronics?
I'd have to go with a no on that one. This isn't anything about alarms, or stereo components. It's a mod to the interior lighting.

Just FYI: I saw that Wally World (a.k.a. Wal-Mart) had started to carry the bulb condoms. There are MORE expensive then Parts Express, but one doesn't have to pay shipping or wait.

Stryker do you recall what size the HVAC/key light used? Also is there only one bulb in the HVAC (RE: service manual AC-9 (fig AC-00607) part no. 9)?

There are 4 bulbs in the HVAC unit and 1 bulb in the key ring light.

The size of the bulb condoms are .2"
