Just a quick question, since the needles in the EL series are orange, I was going to scrap the paint on the back of the needles off. I was wondering is there any kind of paint that I should use?? What did other people use to do this??

Cheers

so you reckon if you wanted sexy red needles, youd need to scrape the paint off the needles, then put nail polish on it? hrmm...

make sure you don't go to heavy on the nail polish
if you make the needles with 2 much paint thay won't be weighted right the your speedo will flick and not be consistent you have been wraned

If you want white ones liquid paper does the trick plenty of ppl have done it with good results. Im liking the nail polish idea tho might have to rip mine out n steal some of the missus's red nail polish. Worst comes to worst i might have to pull em out a couple of times to get the amount of polish right but for red needles soooooo worth it.
