And my tach is still gonna be that dull yellow color i wanted to update the bulb but it is that little twist in one from the front and was wondering if they make a replacement that is a different color because i don't wanna opt out for the little plastic cover in fear of it melting all over the bulb. Anyone have any ideas?

If you have any trouble installing them or changing colors let me know, i've done this on the gen II gauge pods a couple of times now.

As for figuring out a different color for the tach, you'll have to pull the bulb and find out what type it is in order to look for a colored replacement. I would definately suggest relpacing all of the 194 bulbs on the cluster to change the needle color. Red looks really good with those gauge overlays.

Yea I have an old build thread, but none of the picture links work anymore. I have quite a few pictures on my home computer. I've also changed it since those pictures, but I haven't taken any updated pics.
