Queston on the AC reverse indiglo gauges for the GT

Ok..I have just purchased these and I have some questions that I am not too sure of. How exactly do they work? What makes the stock amber light turn to the red/blue lights. Are their LEDs on the AC gauges that turn on? Also, I see that their is a swithc that they come with. What is that for? Thanks for you help

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

it is actually an indiglo overlay film that you put over your stock ones. while your stock ones are still lighting up underneath, all the cool blue and red lights come from the actual overlay itself. you don't have to change any LEDs thumbsup

yeah I saw the Ecelica install guide, and it was helpful, Im just not sure how they work. If there are no LEDs, how come you need to hook them up to power?? And why is there a switch??

Also, this is probably a stupid question, but how come they call they reverse gauges??

i'm sure you can get a better find. but this is how indiglos work. even though its for a watch, not gauges..the same principles hold true: howstuffworks.com: indiglo watches

the are called reverse because during the day (bright) they have a white face and during the night (dark) they have a black face where only the lights are visible.

the switch is for what color (usually 2 greens and 3 blues) you want to see your gauge info with.
