Just wanted to find out if anyone has installed these dial faces in their EF/EL. Are they good quality? and can anyone provide pics of night shots with dials lit up?

Thanks

Ah ok. I am assuming that it lights up in blue. Does this mean that you can use standard fillament globes behind the cluster?

ive got a set for my fairmont a while back. i got him to write fairmont on the speedo aswell, looks nice.
done in white & when dark it lights up blue.
you mite have to change the original cluster globes, as mine dont light that well. u can only just see them.
maybe use some white LED globes for a more clearer view im thinkin.

Done a search and was great. Just want to know. how do your dials light up at night? They are supposed to be blue, and all ive seen so far are photos of these white dials lighting up in a sort of turqouise colour. Is this just the way the photos turn out? or do the dials light up a nice bluey colour? What are yours like?

Do it your self. Really. Instead of spending $70-100 on custom dial faces, do it your self. There are templates for EF/EL around.

Basically put it into photoshop. Make it loom the way you want then print them off on photo paper.

You could also have ago and do something totally different (i have been thinking of it for some time)....but you get some over head projector paper and pring it off on to that and put some paint on the back.
