Default instument cluster lights

Does anyone know if you can change the color and intensity of the instument cluster lights? During dusk it is very difficult to see the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer. I drive a PT Turbo and the instument clusters are a pearlish gray with red pointers; when iluminated the numbers are green. Like I said at dusk it is difficult to see the green numbers, they are almost the same hue as the gray. I was thinking since the pointers are red, and I can see those fine, maybe if I could replace the bulb behind the instrument panel, it might be easier to see the numbers. Has anyone tried this, or come accross this particular problem?

I haven't done this and can't answer your question but I'm also experiencing difficulty reading the instrument gauges under certain lighting conditions. Think they would be easier to read it they were white (like on the non-turbo PTs) instead of silver. Maybe someone else can suggest a solution.

Red would look cool.
