Yes, you could do it...you would need to fabricate some new lenses out of colored plastic though.

I would say your an original thinker just because you've not heard it done before.

i've never been able to find anything about people changing out the colors of their turbo lights.
I would like to, someday, change all of mine to blue.
If i could figure out how to go about it that is.

What is broken? The lense? The bezel? The light itself doesn't work? What? ....

Then you are going to have to start really looking hard for a good used one as they are not repro'd and they are hard to come by in good shape.

You would need to get a new light bar first if yours is cracked in half as you say.

And as I said earlier:
Yes, you could do it...you would need to fabricate some new lenses out of colored plastic though.
