So I got board of my stock gauges and put some glow ones in.

I have not put it all back together, working on getting everything to be accurate.

So my question is should I paint my needles? They almost look black right now when driving , with the way that they block the light, which only looks so/so.
Wondered if any one else has a similar setup and if they have their needles painted red or something that would "glow" and still be visible.

Thanks!

hmm thos do glow pretty good. I wonder how the blue on blue would be.

I am in Newmarket a few times a month so its possible.

Somehow I did not have a picture of my car in one piece :? so I went out and took a pic unfortunately crappy night shot.

Green 96 sc2, stock looking.

I got the gauges online, I think ebay but do not remember got them last summer but never got around to it. Its made my American Products Company and called "Luminescent Gauge Kit"

Install was pretty easy. You need a 7 and 13mm socket, and little screwdriver to pop the cluster apart. And the needles just pull off with you fingers.

Getting the gauges to fit properly required a little sanding and some super glue!
