I think I saw something on here before about a gel you could use to color the lights in your cars interior. Of course I may be crazy. If anyone knows anything about this I'd appreciate some information. I'd rather color my existing bulbs that buy new ones.

194

194's are our interior lights? I wanted to change my interior lights in my 93lx. The ones up in the little roof light system. Is there much involved with removing that to put new bulbs in?

stage gel is the stuff i think you're talkin about........was told they sell them at guitar shops and the like.......it's supposed to be a "film" that goes over the lights on the stage and you can cut it to fit your needs (comes in sheets).......well most people buy colored bulbs and find otu that with time the colors will fade and give you all sorts of shades of the rainbow........the most permanent option i've read was to get some bulb covers..........i believe that summit sells them.

Gel sheets won't fade either, they are also made from high-temp plastic that withstands temps put off by floodlamps. I tried one of the dome light bulb covers from autozone and it started melting within a couple minutes of the door being open.

I have used blue gel sheets and cut them to size for every single light in my interior, including the map lights and instrument display. It looks great because I have a digital display, plus it doesnt fade like the colored bulbs. I bought a 4 x 3 1/2 foot sheet for 9 bucks from a stage lighting place, and it's easy to cut. Just look in the yellow pages for it. it's easy to find....

The dome, map, climate control, and C-pillar lights (if equipped) are not and will not take 194's.

The under dash, dash, and door panel lights (if equipped) can take 194's

Wow, get some 50w halogens to put in there and they will really see you when you open the door.


(Back when my taillights were tinted, I had to run pretty quick to get that shot. :D )

The dome lights are 194 in my 93 XR7. I replaced them with the bigger style of red 194's, they're wider and longer, got them from ACE/Westlake's. They're brighter then the neon tube I got and want to put behind my grill.
