About Gauge's color
The color of gauge is orange, and I saw someone switch to blue LED. But is it still look orange at daytime? only blue at night? I am still consider to buy a reverse gauge thing, it looks pretty good at night. But it looks worse than stock one at daytime...

you would have to color your needle blue, for it to light up blue or it won't look good.

you need to buy gauges from www.rjautoworks.com for the color you want if you want the stock style gauges...then buy the color LED's to change them, so at night you have blue and during the day, the lettering is blue...

if you buy reverse indiglo, such as the S7 from AC Autotechnic, then you do not have to change anything because the gauge lights itself up.

Well, if you change the LED's their light it only noticable at night. Take a look here... http://www.rjautoworks.com/ In the pictures section their are various gauge face and LED combinations. The needles you will have to paint, or I used a red sharpie and it turned out nice. However, my LED's are blue and the needle isn't it's brightest at night. I have been meaning to get a blue sharpie and use that, then recalibrate my gauges since they are about 200 rpm low at redline and 5 mph slow at 75 mph. I have the white faced , blue lettered with blue LED gauges. My gauges are pictured in my profile (daytime pics).
