I was thinking about getting white faced guages in my truck and then switching out the lights behind it to red intead of purchasing speed glo and since i want it red since my truck will be eventually black with red lights underneath it w/ red on the inside (stereo, amp) and red neon possibly w/ red cromed flames or ghots flames on the dash. anyways will changing the bulbs to red if possible and getting a white guage plate work to give my well readable lights at night??

Red may be too "electric", fuzzy at night. Maybe lean towards more amber for the gauge lighting - the eyes won't have to work as hard to see the characters.
Just my $0.02.

I have an idea - why don't you start spending your cash on PERFORMANCE modifications. You have posts all over this site that are only concerned with looks. I don't care how "GOOD" you think your truck looks, it's not $hit if you still have factory everything under the hood. This isn't the "Fast and the Furious". Instead of wasting money on altezza's, tint and subwoofers, why not go to http://www.edelbrock.com, http://www.jegs.com, or something along those lines. Quit acting like those friggin dorks that put chink-scratch stickers and 7 foot wings on thier POS honda go-karts. You drive a CHEVROLET TRUCK. (moment of silence) Treat it like one. Make it so fast that the cupholders are completely worthless. Make it sound so badass that if you heard it idle you would turn to see what it was. Wouldn't you rather have girls get wet when the rumble of your fat cam and the 15:1 compression pulls up to a stoplight, or are you satisfied with stickers and neon lights?

Just a thought.

That was harsh

Not saying that i dont agree, I think performance is much better than styling, but i guess thats why my truck has a custom built race motor, and bumpers that i weled in class.

Each to his/her own i guess
