Finally did it, got the orange film to use it into the cluster ( Color is to close to those found in BMW interiors ) , which gave me the output that I always wanted, of course thanks to this guy over here : http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2138131/2003-honda-accord/

Anyways, will leave you with the pictures now, these can be a reference in the future for those who want their cluster to glow in Red or Orange.

Enjoy, and let me know your opinions...

Nice change-up. That is EXACTLY BMW's orange. I know Volkswagon and Scion had some sort of switch to change the color light in their dash as well...always thought that was a nice feature. Good job!

Thanks dude !

Yup, really close BMW's Orange, didn't expect it to be that close to be honest, I'm loving it so far.

...and by the way, that is an excellent and easy to follow write-up you linked to. I checked eBay for "High Temperature Gel Sheets" and got 47 hits....every color you can imagine. Thank you.

Very nice !! And it's a fairly simple and very inexpensive DIY too - high temp lighting filters, who would of thought !! I used to work with light filters all the time in high school and college ... you can get these for like $3.

I think a light blue hue is in my Accord's future ... something to match the LED interior lights I have my eye on ?? hmmm ...

Very nice job! I personally like the stock color but it looks sharp.

Actually, I live in Dubai and found it locally.

haha, I chose Orange because I'm a big fan of BMWs ! :D

Thanks, I never said that I hated the stock white, but I just wanted to see how it looks with Orange color, and I definitely like it !

I got inspired by the Accord Type-S which is sold in Europe only. ( Youtube )

Thanks, Yeah I wish I can find a method to match them with the orange background or make them red, but don't know if there's a way of doing it.
White needles aren't that bad, but prefer to match them with the rest of the cluster.

Nice! My wife's car is actually an E46 BMW and I always like the way the interior lit up orange at night. I actually did this once to my Old Checy Camaro to mimic the BMW Orange and it turned out good too! Great work and I may have to do this on my Accord....

I would really like to be able to change mine to a blue.
Get a blue filter and do it !

Really simple and not time consuming, maximum time required is 1 hour.
