    This is all covered here LS1.com Appearance Museum

    its more involved than just changing bulbs on the gauges, HVAC and headlight switch.

    scroll down and you can see my HVAC panel which turned out nice.

    I believe it would be the same principal, as long as your buttons do not have any color built into them then you just need to replace the bulbs with whatever color LEDs you want and dont forget to add a resistor to the power wire going to them.
    My controls had only 2 bulbs each in them covered with a red rubber cap. I wound up putting 3 blue LEDs in each to get an even light pattern, then put my resistor in the gray wire under the dash that goes up the column feeding them.
