I have been mucking about and got the designs printed professionally on transparent film (two of each so I could over lay them to stop the black parts lighting up), I put white paper behind the numbers etc. However, when the lights are on, the black parts let through light anyway.. So I need to somehow stop it doing that - I am going to try some thin black cardboard, and maybe even sand off the top layer on the original (will get a spare) plastic if the card doesn't work.

What a bastard of a setup.

The best thing to do would be to use a bit of shim steel or shim aluminium, no thicker than the paper. It would need to be lasercut and for you to get it done would cost you an arm and a leg.

However. I get a lot of laser cutting done for work and I would be happy to get some templates lasercut for people on fordmods. Only problem is I'd need to do it in quantities. A one off every now and then would still cost a lot for me.

Just my estimate, a full dash template cut out of 0.5mm aluminium would probably come to about $10 each. That's just a very rough guestimate, but before I can get a price from my laser cutter, I'd need to convert the template to an autocad file and get an idea of how many people would be interested.

Converting the template to autocad would take me a long time as I'm only a self taught amature when it comes to autocad. But, if someone out there had good drafting skills and is good with autocad, we could combine our efforts.

Get some from http://www.ledshoponline.com/automotive ... e_bulb.htm

If LEDs from that place aren't bright enough, I'll eat my tyres.

im just curious as to the LED's on that site...

Firstly, what LED's would i need to use to change over behind the cluster on an EBII? as in a product number from the site?

Secondly, would i need to wire in any resistors etc? or are they pre-wired and just need to be plugged in?
