Hey so i just put blue leds through the cluster, looks awesome although the red needles are abit dull and you can barely see them i was wondering if the clear/white needles from an EF Cluster would work on this cluster. and if not what other ways can i get the needles to light up abit more!

Thanks.

epic FAIL. EF needles are a no go simply because the design is so different. The AU needles are the clear red plastic which had a white back painted on them. The white back came off with nail polish and that didnt help the situation any i then decided to go further into the cluster and carve out underneath the centerpoint of the needles (it had a red film over it) so i carved it out hopeing it would help let the blue shine. this also failed i may just need to carve more out from the centerpoints but omfg what a pain in the a**. so ive come to the conclusion that.... I NEED CLEAR NEEDLES THAT WORK IN AN AU i just dont think the blue goes through the red filter so yeah....


is there any clear needles for an AU?????
