Well have a had a few people ask me about my cluster background and as i wanted to update mine i have so (have not yet put it in the car yet)
after 4 hours of stuffing around in photoshop i eventually made a background that i liked

if you like them and want to use them please save them

never had an xr badge so i never made one. just get a photo of your badge cut it out and paste it on.

EF\EL Cluster

Full size pictures are just under 4MB

i use adobe photoshop and when ya go to "print with preview" then in that window it has "scaled print size" in this box i put %11.6 my prints come out spot on like this


EA\EB\ED Cluster

With these Templates you have to experiment to get th right print size
The Masks could be used for the template

Nah dude, NF, DF, NL, DL Fairlane and LTD clusters are different and look better than your gli, fairmont/xr ones.

got no idea how they will come out , post up a photo if ya try any of these templates out with some night shots if your able to and what globes or led's you are using.


you will have to experiment when printing out these ones in photoshop slect print preview and there is a box where you can select the size in percentage. the ef/el one print nice at %11.6
