Default Sport Trac Gauge Cluster Light Conversion

So, if the sport trac cluster uses these

http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...ania_5081874-p



Can I replace them with these? Just a simple plug and play (no wiring of resistors)

http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...edge-base/206/

Also, what do you guys think is the best way to get red out of the cluster?

1. Get rid of the green tinting and repaint red or cover with red film using stock bulbs?

2. Get rid of the green tinting and repaint red or cover with red film using white leds?

3.Get rid of the green tinting and repaint red or cover with red film using red leds?

4. Get rid of green tint (leave clear) and replace stock bulbs with red leds?

Thanks guys for any input!

Default Re: Sport Trac Gauge Cluster Light Conversion

Hey man in my old Mitsubishi Eclipse I used the superbright leds. They were awesome and super bright haha but seriously Im not sure if the green tint would effect the red bulbs. The eclipse had an ugly yellow tint but the red still showed through great. The green may change the color a little more. Id pull the cluster and change one bulb and put it back in just to see if it needs scraped off. One thing to remember is the light housings have polarity so they only work one way in the housing. Youll just have to remember how they go in.
