To everyone who wanted to know how i got my dash blue but kept the needles white.

the reason i took these pics is because i was trying to get my needles red with a 4 spot LED but i could not get them to light up like i hoped.

sure, it looks a bit dull in those "special spots" due to the ford mob adding white crap on the back which i attempyed to scrape off without success.

Is that just regular blue plastic?

Are you able to send through a template of what you used?
