fixed up me LEDs (frosted them, and reduced the resistor form 560Ohm to 380Ohm) and now the dash is as good at night as it is during the day - I'm most happy now :D

Rapier, nice work.

How hard to install and have you got LEDs or anything coloured in there? Or is that colour all the dials?

It in reality is very easy, start with scanned dial faces (templates for an EF, works in ELs to, are available from me), photochop them the way you want, print, install.


Just wondering, what did you print it on to? Paper, Photo paper?

Hey Im new here but just about to give ma bro's car the neon dash treatment :D . Just a quick question (dont think its been answered before) about the needles. Im not sure if mine has the orange backing thing but if it does how do I get it glowing blue/white and is visible during the night (I heard the orange isnt visible at night). The cars a EF GLi.
Thanks heaps, looking forward to being part of the community!

The white EF needles usually deflect the light through them quite well anyway since they are white. EL is orange.
