LEDS

I know there's probably a thread about this but i cant find anything. Basically i wanna do plug ins but don't want to scrape off the green filter on the back. if i get blue LED's and just plug them in will it light up blue and vise versa with other colors?

I've used green & blue led's in my cluster, never sanded the overlays....
Mine was green OEM but the blue led's look pretty snazzy too.
