I know this topic has been done over and over but i used a template that was on the forum for my Ef Fairmont (dials for spped/tacho) and when i printed it it was too large to replace mine. am i doing something wrong? do i need to resize? any suggestions. i took mine out and had to return it back in the car as the sizes were totaly different. any feedback, suggestions appreciated cause i wanna try again this weekend.

cheers

Might be something as simple as having the printing set to "Fit to page" rather "100%".

Yeah you don't want that option set, as the dials are smaller than an A4 page, so that will definately make them print to big.

If they're the same scans I made, they're made at 600dpi, so be sure to print them at 600dpi as well, they should print out perfect.

You need a decent paint program to print it properly. I beleive 'Paint Shop Pro' has a free trial available.
