Hey Guys, I've just put a set of custom dials into my EA Falcon, (considering it a test run before I touch the ED!)

I've used the same "Technique" as data_mine to make these. I think they turned out pretty good, although I haven't tested them at night. I still need to get some LED's before I do that though. They looked alright in front of my house lights, (and the LEDs will be much brighter).

I'll take photos of the nighttime as soon as I can.

Here is what the cluster looks like:

Did You Still Have Your Original Scans of your Dials.

I have been meaning to do this for myself but need someone to scan them for me.

Can you post them up full size preferrably.

If you can that would be great.

Not your dials as, i am sure you want them to stay unique, but the originals so i can make a unique pair for myself.

Here are the templates I used. I zipped them up to save you from downloading them all separately. They are all in Photoshop format.

I've been thinking and looking at those dials, and must say, they definately being that EA out of the stone age.

Not bad! Can you get some night shots?

Quick question, in Photoshop, how did you get the fonts and lines in the speedo etc to be so smooth? When I use the magic wand tool it makes them jagged regardless of anti-alias switched on!

You have to edit the image at high resolution 600dpi. Thus when printed the jaggies are so small you cna;t see them.

Thanks for that, it will help me completely.

Saves me from a big hassle.

My parents have a scanner but they are a 2hr round trip away.
