Default Interior dash & console lighting mods?

Hey gang! 04 Honda Accord V6 EX Sedan.

Looking for a possible modification to the layout or lighting of the dash by the speedometer and gauges. Do they make anything for that? I did some snooping around but couldn't find anything. Maybe some one here could point me in the right direction?

Thanks!
RP

The lighting of the gauges are principally SMD (surface mount devices) LEDs that are soldered in. A few people have changed them before; but, not recommended for a beginner without a little soldering skill with SMD type components; the gauge control module (aka instrument cluster) is not cheap to replace and have the odometer reading reprogrammed with Honda's Diagnostic System (HDS).

Other lighting that use regular incandescent bulb, around the interior and exterior of the car can be changed to different color plug-and-play LEDs, etc. One seller is V-LEDS.

So what do you recommend for someone who is trying to change the lighting on their panel?
