    I haven't tried it again.

    The HUD is a VFD (vacuum fluorescent display) just like the upper instrument cluster. I can put a gel film over it. It works well, but reduces daytime visibility. In the case of blue it still has a greenish cast to it. Because the HUD is very sensitive to interference with glare, IMO, I'm not really in favor of adding the film to it.

    However, I'll add it if someone asks. :D

    @sfv41901 -- I can't remember -- did we leave the film on your HUD, or did we take it off?

    I'll be there bright and early Saturday morning. I'll probably be slaving away with my soldering iron until the wee hours of the morning. :cool:
