Im looking into changing the colour of my needles from white to red what kind of paint do i use to get it so the light still comes through and so that it is evenly painted?

Also while i have my dash apart i think i might do the dash globes conversion are there any types of L.E.D's that i can buy so that i don't have to solder them in? How many L.E.D's will i need?

What colour grey/silver did people paint their speedo surround in?

Where do i get the paint from?

Thanks

no light really goes though the needles, its now the backlighting of the whole dash that lights the needles up .
