This will probably be a Christmas-present mod for me, unless I get too impatient.

Sniper, what light color did you go with for yours? Looks to me like 'Ice Blue' would turn out the best.
I was thinking dark blue, but they recommended electric blue so they sent me two backings. I think I was right with the dark blue, but the el-glow backing is so dim that it would be hard to see. So I used the electric blue, which matches the Scangauge at least. Just about everything is a slightly different shade anyway, same with the green... it's a Ford.

I could put a bright new backing on and see what it does, but I don't feel like taking it all apart. Maybe they can send you two backings to see what you think is best.

After all of this time I'm still not tired of them, so I'd say it's worth it!
