Previous posts notwithstanding (regarding adding colored gels to alter the color), the display is actually a flourescent display module, not LCD.

Couldn't you get that stuff they use for concerts. They use it in the lights to change the light color.

Im not sure what they cost because my work had some laying around that they had no use for. So it was a free mod for me lol. But I'm sure you can get em on ebay. Or try googling 'lighting colored gels' or something.

I also used 2 layers on my old Sport Trac overlays when I modded it blue. It works really good for that EXCEPT that you'll get major hotspots if you don't use something like 360 degree SMD LED bulbs.

you can probably cut it into pieces big enough to do the console and sell the rest. i would probably buy a section if it works.
