i will try to do that in my zen but it will take sometime as i am in chandigarh and my zen is at my pind (village)

and about the type to zen cluster you can get it fixed

you will be better of buying from a scrap yard out of a total loss car it will cost close to 1k

You can replace that with a different colored film and You're done. It has to be cut same as the original one.

Unhappy Sorry baba!

To be honest, I didn't like the last few pics.
  1. It is in an awkward angle. You can rotate the pics before posting it. Even Imageshack has an option of rotating pics.
  2. I think Blue suits better than the current one. Maybe I am a Blue boy, but the current one is more like the stock ones.
  3. There is a huge mismatch between the centre console lights and speedo. It would be better if it was of the same colour.
I read earlier you were looking for Bluer bulbs. Let's wait and see them in action.

and sorry for the awkward angle and i love the blue speedo of your car and i am still waiting for the blue bulbs and mismatch is due the cell camera i am using to click the pics

its easy for a ikon

just remove the black or the silver thing around the speedo and then unscrew the speedo and unhook the speedo cable from behind and then you will find many nob their will be big and small nob's remove only the big and then remove the cap or change the bulb
