Val gave me this link........its a DIY project, but don't try selling them, he's got a patent on the circuit, so unless you want a lawsuit don't think about it

He released the circuit design, but I ain't sure if it is complete, I don't think so, I've done some circuit building in the past, but its been a long time

I might get a guy that does circuits for my work to build one, not sure............

Anyways here's the link........the vid is awesome

http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2898256&uid=105676&dir=1&postid=33189767 Link to the DIY mod on the VW board

http://www.fallastarmedia.com/ledproj.htm Link to his site

Anyways I am going to take this to my wiring crew at work, see what they say, let me know what you think

Looks pretty cool. A lot of work for something that no one but youself will see though. Just proves that if theres a will theres a way.

I agree that it is a freaking sick mod, and would love to see it in a saturn, but I would never do it myself.
Do it up Jer :)

can somebody give me pics of their stock saturn clusters, not in MPH, I would like 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen SOHC, and DOHC clusters.......that way I can give them to the guy that did the initial VW build, he is going to help me out it seems in figuring out the wiring diagram for our cars........

do all your little lines on the tach light up? cause if so, that is going to be ALOT of LED's

I think for the SC's and SL's, you should only light up the major lines, not each individual line because it'll be too much

Yep, they all light up. Should be somewhat like the VW cluster.
