You have to take off the black face and sand the back of it, then paint if blue and it will be blue. I did mine in red. Sorry no pictures.

I find the black faces' font to be uber dull looking, thats probaby why more don't use the stock faces.

I thought Mudranger96 used the black faces....well....he did, but he's using an aftermarket white overlay. I think I've got pics of red led's with blackface somewhere.

I had blue LED's with the black sanded overlays for a minute. It wasn't that great, I hate how doing it like that causes all the red on the gauges to get lost...looks like ****.
The best way IMO is to use blue film with white bulbs, that way the red parts stay untouched and only the green parts turn blue.

that'll work. just be careful applying the paint though, I can't do it without screwing it up and having it look like blotchy sh**.
