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!

Can you get me a pic? Is that the only gauge that is messed up? I will make you a new one no problem.


This picture pretty much shows what is up:

It's kinda like how I asked before about the white face guages... you can't make the numbers themselves light up, so you light up around them. When the numbers are very small (like the Km/h part), the parts that are lit up combine and form a blob that makes the numbers unreadable, which means I can't use them here.
