    Default Dash conversion kits

    OK Just thinking about this as a "want to" task

    I see the stock Orange and I think it isn't too offensive
    Blue? very VW but needs a mountain of work on the little items that need changed to make it look cohesive?

    Now then, what about red? anyone got red dials at night? the red and orange could merge in places and leave the GID etc alone?

    Vehicle : Insignia

    Trim : SRI VX-Line Nav

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI [170 PS]

    Year : 2015

    Mileage : 27000

    If I were you try and mic it up a bit. I plucked for blue on the dash and 'white' in the dials - looks good but there is a bit much blue on the dash which I will hopefully be getting sorted. Don't get me wrong I wanted blue but I plan to have some LED's changed.

    Like the idea of colouring them in - never used a soldering iron, and wouldn't trust myself with it anyway!

    If you didn't like it, could the marker pen be rubbed off? Like if you've written on glass?

    And would any colour work?
