Wait, the clock actually is back-lit?!? I owned my 6G for 6 years and would gripe about the clock not being illuminated almost every time I drove it at night. It was out when I bought it so I just assumed they weren't illuminated.
Haha, I drove mine for a couple years before I discovered this as well. Someone did a thread on LED conversion (Shenaniganz08 iirc) and posted a picture of their clock lit up, I was like whaaat.
