Gauges mod!

What do i have to do to get exactly the colors in red in every line in the number like in the picture and, also the redline of course in red and the little numbers? and maybe instead of getting the needles in blue, have them in red??

i was looking at some pictures in rjautoworks but in the photo all the numbers are in blue and the only thing in red is the redline.


thanks to everyone!

Not too sure but that looks like those are the gauges that are that color. I dont think that just by changing the specific leds to that color it would turn out like that. I heard some place could make you custom gauges. Like gauges hut or some shit.

yeah, the gauges would have to be that color. . . becuase the LED's that are in there just shine one color. and its not like there are 1000 LED's behind the gauges, there is only like 6 or 7 for each spedo and rpm gauge. .. not sure?

At the bottom of the website I listed you can customize them but I dont see an option for what you want. Call them up and see if they can do that because that is your best bet that I know of.

yea that gauge is colored. you must replace your led in the gauge cluster to change the color of the light.

I've done the LED conversion(blue) and bought my new gauge face from RJAutoworks. At night, everything is blue except for the turn signals(white), and the warning lights(whatever color they are). I went with a silver gauge face with black numbers, so that's what you see during the day. I would have to say that the picture you've shown is similar to indiglo gauges, where you'd have to wire in their own lights.

I would still call them and see if they could make them. Worth a shot unless someone else has a better way

so the face of the gauges during the day you will have to see it in blue and in red like in the picture above, but at night you use a white led kit right??

is there one led for each needle?

in this case, the led in the needles are blue, right??

It's really hard to tell without seeing the gauges in the light. It should look the way you described it, and the only blue LED's would be the needles. If you could find a pic not lit up, it would be easier to tell.

Did some research. Here's what your looking for, and it requires some wiring. It would also still require the changing of the needle LEDs.

I believe you would have to tie into your headlight wiring, so that when your lights are on, your gauges light up. As for the other gauge option, if you order the LEDs and find someone who can solder, I think the process would be easier. I took my car to a home/car audio shop, and they had it done in 20 min. I put the gauge face in and painted the needles myself.

Good find. thumbsup The rj gauges will require you to do the entire gauges and lcd (gas odo screen)in the different color led's. The ebay gauges will only require you to do the led's on the lcd screen since the gauge face will be hooked up to a power source and light up that color you wanted.
