Changing dash, gauge & switch light colors

We got our '01 F250 several months ago & loving it so far, but compared to many other vehicles the dash is boring at best. We plan on adding a pillar with 3 gauges but looking at changing all the interior night illumination lighting to blue or white while I'm at it. I've seen many other vehicle brands either offer kits to do the change, or have someone do it to their own vehicle & writeup the process. I've already searched the site here but found nothing so far - maybe I'm using the wrong keywords very possibly - but want to know if anyone has done it here, how they did it, and pics of the result. The dull green lighting needs to go away & Ford blue or ice white go into its place.
