You like? (borat styles). I just cut up red and blue cellophane and glues it onto the back of the EL Faceplates. 2 layers of each works the best anymore and there is not enough light. Pretty easy and works perfectly, no LED's needed. After sticking the cellophane on I put a ton of phone books on the plates to make sure it dries super flat so the needles can be pushed right down to the original position. I tried the same thing on an EF cluster but it only works on the EL, the plates are made in a way different way. Needles are EF with permanent red texter over them. It's been like that for a year now with not fires etc. lol

Cellophane and permanent marker, aih? Now why didn't I think of that... I want to go for an all blue look, but with the high rev zone actually red, and with red needles.
Thanks cboz! You've given me some good ideas.
