Clock Color Change Guide. Ver. 2.0

Improved Clock Color Change Mod

Most people are unhappy with your current clock color. 00-02 clocks can do the filter trick in the installs but it will be very dim during the day and pretty dim at night. Those with 03-05 clocks are stuck with either orange or red because the lens is orange. So here is what i did. I took off the whole lends from the front of the clock. The lense is held in by 4 pegs of plastic that just need to be dremmeld out to get the lens off. Now u will have a light green lcd with a nice looking black surround. So u can now do the filter trick.

This is the clock when out of the housing



now unscrew the 3 small screws in the back. They are very tiny so may need glasses screwdriver to get them out:




Use a dremmel or small drill. There are 4 pegs in the back that are expanded plastic. To get these out, drill the plastic out of it until its loose. The 2 in the middle are deep in, therefore hard to get to. Get a long bit do get it out. Try not to dril to deep so to keep the lense intact, and keep the black plastic housing intact. Also be carefull with the clock itsef.




Once you get the lense out it should look like this (without the hole in the center. That was my first attempt to brighten the lense up
You dont need this anymore but can keep it and glue it back on later if u dont like how the clock looks
Now this part you need ot use whatever celophane colors u need ot make the color u want. The actual clock is a light green color. To get a nice bright blue use 1 purple filter and 2 blue filters.

Simply cut the filters and place as shown here:



Now put everyhting back together and it should look something like this:









THIS IS THE INSTLAL FOR TEHE CELPPHANE



I have found that practically any color can be had using the green clock. It’s just a matter of combining the correct combination of filters to achieve the desired shading. The key matching the blue of the cluster and radio LEDs is filtering out the green light using a purple filter. This will give the clock a light blue illumination. To get a medium blue illumination, layer a blue filter over the purple filter. Many folks have tried using just blue filters which results in either a teal blue or an extremely dim blue display. The clock can even be made to illuminate white if you wish by using multiple layers of pink film. Cellophane wrapping film can be used for the filters and is available at craft or party supply stores for a whopping $1.00 per roll so start saving your dough for this one. LOL
Below is a reference pic showing some relative shadings and the filters used:






This plug is the one on the clock. Disconnect this wire if you want the clock at full brightness at all times.
PS: Sorry for the crappy pic quality. When saving them from a word doc i lost hte origonal pics and they turned out like these

Also i cannot take full credit as somone did the filter writeup a long while back on another site.




UPDATE:

I eventually covered the opening with a Kenny Heiser carbon fiber Clock face (no longer available) but you can make something similar

Just did mine looks great during the day!!

All there is to it is that since you take off the outside plastic where it says passenger etc leaves a gap between the clock and the clock mounting.. Apart from that its great!

Well done dan!

I tried this on my 00 celi. Was aiming for a blue color, and although at night its pretty close to blue its really dim. Durring the day i cannot even see the clock. Yes i cut the dimmer wire. Im thinking the purple celo might be just too purple and its blocking out to much light. If any1 has a better idea let me know, id really like for this mod to work but atm im pretty dissapointed with my result.

Ahh of course i see now, i feel like an idiot hehe. After removing that lense do you feel it cheapens the look at all by not having that smooth look? And once you take it out is it possible to put the lense back on?

i took it off and imo it looks better. no one would ever be able to tell if you didnt tell them, unless they had a celi

you can put it back on if you choose to but it blocks to much

Very good write up!!! I just did this today with a regular power drill with a very small drillbit. Took me a while because it was really small.

I accidentally drilled a tiny hole in the glasss but its barely noticeable. I used the 3 red filters to make the clock look red.

Taking of the glass piece is definately an improvement, I previously used only the filters but it was very dim and could barely be seen. Looks much better now!!

03+ clocks cannot change any color without removing the lense as the lense is colored. but if you remove the lense the color is a white/green. using purple filters make it more white

Just curious for anyone who's work with making their own plastic molding, but has anyone considered making a clear front lens cover or even a blue lens one? was thinking of how the green clock was made amber by the amber color lens.

follow the filter guide for color and if your red isnt red enough then try red sharpie on the already set filters.

No DRilling Needed!!!!!!!!!!!!omg...,.,.,


TO everyone who reads this:
you don't have to drill the "holes" out, just simply - but carefully pull the two pieces apart. Start at one corner and pull, I used a flat head screwdriver and placed it between the cover and the back plate, and twisted the screwdriver slowly-to separate the two.,.. you'll hear a "PoP", now pull from the other corner (the same way) till it pops, now the two in the middle, just pull carefully and it was come apart, or you can drill!
And if you decide you want to put it all back together, just apply a little super-glue, in a un-noticeable place(s).

or you could potentially crack the lense by prying it off. all the drilling does is get the melted top area off so you could easily glue it on after as pegs and lens is in tact. There is also the potential for more or less melted pegs as it is a bit variable. So yours may have melted less and therefore easier to snap where others could be thicker and cause too much stress in the lens cracking it. I have taken apart multiple lenses over the years and all have been different with regard to amount of melted pegs therefore some would have a higher potential to snap the whole lens. Simply sanding/drilling the top melted tip makes sure the lens loose and lens intact.

btw thanks for the overly dramatic 1st noob post.

those reading, if following this guide i do not condone prying so do so at your own risk

Another note on the drilling: Doing it while sitting on a couch watching T.V. can be tough, as well as dangerous.

I just did mine and it came out a wonderful red. Thanks for the guide.

If one was to leave the plastic cover on the front and still at filter paper, would it still be bright enough to see, or does it just end up to dim?

does anybody know if the clocks on the 00-02 are the same as the 03+? I was thinking about going to a scrap yard to try and find an older clock for the conversion as it seems easier than with my hideous orange one.

probably a silly question but is the clock plastic 'tint' not just a coating? therefore could you not sand the area of the clock tint off?

I hate to say it hombre, but I literally just got my clock out and the plastic fascia come off with ease prying it very gently with a wide flat head screwdriver from both corners then the top, took me 2 mins and NOTHING has snapped.
