OK..... I had a spare ohc torn apart today. There is a green lens on the front of the display... the older(i believe) type has a blueish one..... I presume you could get a clear plastic one and then color it what ever color your heart desires and then re- install and the color would change.....

just a warning i read that the actual lighting is green so even if you put in a blue filter it will be green/blue and not completely blue.

I think I printed out the first post and followed it for the wiring. All went well, of course I soldered and TESTED all my splices before I put it all to together.

Somewhere on here I wrote how much wire to use it is a good guide as far as how much each color will need.

Help is here.
