What does everyone use for the blue dash light that illuminates the AC/Htr control n the 70-71 Barracuda Challengers. The original blue bulb cover has deteriorated and I can't find a replacement anywhere.
Thanks,

Don't recall, is it a cover over the bulb or is it part of the plastic surround and the light shines through?
I will have to double check on my car.

Could probably find a colored sheet at a craft store to match the color .

I have no idea what to use as a replacement but here's a picture of it removed from its housing.

You could always paint the bulb the right shade of blue.

i got my stash of bulb "covers" [?] out, and there are two different lengths.
one, about 3/8" long, and the other, about 1/2" long.
both seem to fit the same size socket, but these things are fragile.
look at the pics, and if you can use one, it's yours.
