Yea it can be done. You'll just have to do some soldering to replace the LEDs. It is also possible to change the colour of the two round displays in the middle of your speedo and rev meter. I do have a guide in Japanese, which is translated using google translate. It is not very clear and does not contain all the steps, but is surely helpful. I will post it later on when I'll have time to upload the pics. Here's something for starters:

LEDs and the displays still in place


Display connectors cutted to replace the LED backlightning and then soldered back


End result


LEDs on the dashboard


Result after replacing

So, here is the guide I promised to post. Sorry for the delay, I've been quite busy lately. Been modding my lights and just came back from a spontanious trip.

I repeat that the guide is translated from Japanese using Google Translate. It is also collected from several different guides, but I'm sure it will still help you understand the process. Good luck to everyone who'll decide to try this. Post your comments and lots of pics when you'll get it done!!

I just tried loading a photo and it worked.  It was a photo I took, it was on my computer, I found the file, selected it and it loaded. 
Of course I selected the paper clip “click to choose files” , went to Browse and selected Choose Files.

Hi bud, I was referring to the pictures SpeedChaser posted, can you access them? I currently have my dash apart and want further instructions but can't really make sense of the translation without the pictures. Thanks
