why not just buy regular bulbs, and then stain them with stained glass stuff, i did my entire dash with that stuff and my interior lights, works good so far,

I have blue neons in mine and they look good, otherwise you could get some blue LED's... which would look kinda cool, but might not be the look you are looking for. Otherwise if you get new bulbs to replace what you have, you have to get blue glass bulbs, not coated. My friend has blue glass backup lights on his 99 cougar, they still haven't faded at all since he put them in last summer.

You should buy Lens paper like what DJ lights have and sheet all u do is cut them to your lights and there u go u have blue lights forever all u have to do is replace your stock bulbs with white ones again when they burn out. i did it to mine and havent had a problem

I think it is called Lens Paper it is the thickness of paper but translucent and is blue or whatever colour u want and is flexible

heres another easy way. I did this to my ride soon as i got it and have had no problems...also did it to a friends ride. Get some blue translucent vinyl(the **** they make decals out of) and cover all your light coverings...the plastic dome cover, holes under dash, and reading lamp lenses.. this may not work with the gauges light however, i havent tried that yet.....but the vinyl does work, it lasts and if done properly, looks well during the day. This is much much much better in a reg cab. The ligh tends to be rather fainter in an ext cab....dome lamp is too far back.

you should be able to get the vinyl at any sign shop that does it...fairly cheap .....im talkin less than $5 and even thats high. you may want them to apply it however. The dome light can be a pain due to the corners and slight curvature.

The blue stained glass paint always turns out green for me, even after 5(count em) coats! I guess cuz the light is yellow and that makes it green. :(

And I got mine at Micheals
