I can't read the Km/h part at night (look like red blobs), which is kinda a big thing here...

So I swapped the stock ones back in. Guess I'll sell the S&H ones on the classifieds or (gulp) Ebay.

At least I got a look at the inside of the cluster, though... plenty of room to add some crazy lighting in there!

EDIT: playing around with my 1W LEDs... now I see why these things need a heat sink! Oh, and my camera couldn't take a pic of 4 of them on... they're that bright!




Red blobs?

Did you chrome the cluster and upgrade the bulbs?




Oh yeah... I've got mad lighting in there.

It doesn't have anything to do with the lighting... it's just that it's not detailed enough. Like if you tried using a old sharpie to make small numbers/letters instead of a sharp pencil... they come out looking like "blobs."

And I happen to need to be able to read those blobs.
