Looks good, did you do the LED's too? if so were the difficult?


You won't believe the things I can do with a ping pong paddle and a 9 iron.

oh, little tip if you want brighter needles, thsi si waht i did:

Get a sharpie and some light blue model paint found at any craft store, hell even i think walmart. Just a light blue.
Do 2 coats of sharpie, let dry between each. This will give you the nice dark blue color.

Now do one solid coat of the light blue model paint. Now it will reflect like a mofo at night.

It wasnt too hard. I had my friends gps in my car and i set the cruise at 30mph and stucked the needle back on there. For the rpm, I read off my 5" monster tach.
