Question Anyone know how to change color of dash lights from orange to blue?

I have a 2004 g35 coupe and the dash lights are orange (I am not just talking about the gauges, I mean everything on the dash)...does anyone know how I can change them to blue or is there any kits out there?

accordfreak is the only one I know who was willing to hack up the center console unit to change the LEDs to all blue:

Much easier and cheaper to just spray everything with Blue Tint Spray

I think I just added you bud to the group. its def bad ***. I was the first 04 to do this and it wasnt to harsh but it def will cost alot more after the time and work he has had to put into it.....its trial and error with the Resistors and LED's to get the right light output so you dont have hotspots. we are still working on it to get it fully functional but im not sure Rob is willing to work on anymore 03-04's honestly.....I put him to the test he conquerered it but its def way to much work since we do not have any LED's in our gauge cluster.

Yeah I just got the email that you added me! I cant wait to go to a meet. I have a 95 3000gt also and im on 3si all the time and now this is my new addiction! =) Ive been wanting to do it on my 3000gt but damn im not THAT good with wiring but it is easier on a 3000gt. Well maybe he will change his mind or something =P HOPEFULLY! If not are there any over lays for gauges? All Ive seen so far are Angel ones? On ebay. Are there anymore??
