Clock Gauge Bulbs

Hello, has anyone got a Auto Meter 4385 Gauge Ultra-Lite Clock in their car, if so could you tell me if you can replace the standard bulb with a blue led. If you can what bulb is it? I have looked online and all they supply for this clock are covers for the bulbs.

Or maybe someone has a clock gauge like the one i've mentioned made by someone else that has a white face with a blue led backlight.

Please can someone let me know and any photos would be great.

Re: Clock Gauge Bulbs

Had a look at the clock,"guessing" its like my boostgauge that just lights up white round the edge,i considered coloured LED`s but the thing is with a LED bulb its only bright when youre directly facing it so from the sides wont be as bright as a regular bulb so whereas a regular bulb will light a large area up an led tends to have a more concentrated point where its bright-for what you want "may" be better off with the coloured caps believe it or not or coloured bulbs if ya can get em.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.
