Changing Gauge/Needle Colors?

I have 2006 g6, I was wondering if you can change the lights of your needles and gauges? Is there a kit I can buy? Is it a hard thing to do?

As far as I'm aware you have to take the cluster apart, everything is illuminated via surface mounted LEDs that are soldered to the board in various locations. If you feel up to it you can take it apart and remove and replace them with different colors.

A member on here went as far as to get Multi color LEDs and wired in a little dial so you can change the gauge colors on the fly.
I tried to find the thread but I'm having little luck.

Also there is a kit out there to change the faces white.

that would be awesome if we could find that thread. I know how to solder but not that well. I would be scared to mess up the cluster. I have the kit to change the faces white but would like to change the lights from red to blue.
