Thanks for the update. Do you know if the dot matrix version could be done? They are bi-color (orange and red). Could it be made blue and red?

Yes. It's just a lot of work. If you have any soldering skills you should be able to do it. You need blue replacement LEDs and to desolder/remove the old LEDs. Solder in the new ones. And you'll have to make some kind of diffuser. The dot matrix screen has a orange plastic diffuser so when you do the Blue color it makes it impossible to shine through. So I made it out of white paper. Which I ended up printing a pattern in gray and white to get the pattern I did (LCARS)

Still for sale. This is honestly super shocking to me that nobody wants this.

I think once you modify something that's so hard to replace, it gets a bit tighter of a group who would be interested. I think it's pretty cool what you've done, but white would have been a better choice than blue - more classy and in line with the cars' personality.

For me - if it were white and about half the price, I'd be more inclined to scoop it up. Just so you know where I'm coming from.

Thanks,

Half the price? You can't even replace all the parts I have listed in stock form for what I'm asking. I priced every single part at or below low/average used part prices. And for the color, to each their own. I totally disagree with white and there are others who have tried getting me to recreate the set in purple and ice turned them down for more than half the peice. The only other person that has done this as far as I've seen did it in green. Everyone has their own opinions on illumination color. I wanted the VAG coloring because I felt it was the nicest. That was my taste.

As for hard to replace, nothing listed is hard to replace or hard to find.

But thanks for your 2c

Can't believe not one person wants any of this with all the requests I got to duplicate it. Especially half the price of what all this stuff costs used and plain.

Probably because no one's swapping their dash.
Also wouldnt swapping Clusters change the odometer reading to yours.
