Since it was sunny today decided I would change my Dials to white, bought the dash template off eBay seller speed_graphics for $70 plus $3 postage.

I didnt want to make my own from paper as I wanted a the plastic template which has holes where the light has to emit from. Those sections are covered with a red coloured contact, you can have it mutil coloured but I just wanted red at the moment.

Well at first i didn't like the Std Ef Fairmont Dials as it was all black so I bought an EL Fairmont Cluster and that looked more classier than the EF all black but I wanted it to light up red at night.

So I bought red dash leds BUT the red leds werent bright enough to shine through the Std El Fairmont Cluster at night :(

So I bought the White Template with Red Symbols/Dails/Numbers and changed the Red Leds back to White and BINGO looks good now

This is why the white cluster has RED pointers as std EF Monty are white.

Hmmm I think the incriments may of just not come out on the photos as they were taking off my mobile phone BUT then again I could be wrong as I didnt really take that much notice :(

But do you want something like this?

eBay seller speed_graphics and here is link to his add for EF EL:-
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Ford-Falcon-EF-EL-WHITE-FACE-GAUGES_W0QQitemZ220115856846QQihZ012QQcategoryZ6775QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Here is what he quoted me:-
Quote:
Yes, they are plastic with cut-through markings on the front face.

Basically, the white face blocks light completely and they will glow through the numbers and markings only at night.

The markings are translucent and can be changed (anything except black is ok - black won't allow any light to shine through at night). Generally no extra cost to change the colour of the markings.
Cheers,
Sam.

Well Red LEDS are made by NARVA and you can get them from Bursons BUT actually I tookl the red LEDS out and I have White LEDS as the RED is off the template i bought off speed_graphics. You can have it multi coloured if you like as well :)
