Yeah i had to pop the lens out to tape it off, i glued it back on after i got it all painted up.

Then i tried to scan the front and change some of the colors. One thing i hate about the US gauges is the stupid km/h along with the MPH IMO it just clutters up the display and makes it look messy.

I tried to delete a little of it and then add some color or different color.

It kinda looks like the newer second gen displays now. I havnt tried it yet with the dash lights on, i sure it wont look this neat but it was fun tinkering around with it for a few hours.

BowerR64 Inspired by this thread!

I ordered a new gauge cluster for my car so i thought ide tear apart my old one and try and fix it up a little while i wait on the new one to come.

This is what ive done so far.

disciplerocks Lol I have actually swapped back to stock. It was hard tuning and guessing redline with the tach 1k off. And I never completed the blue led swap so I just said screw it.

So my focus does not have a tach but just the dummy light. I want a tach but now that I see this I want the tach from the cougar. Can I do like a double conversion to add tach and do it with the cougar gauges?

disciplerocks Update, I just ordered 50 blue leds from ebay for 9 bucks. And a headlight switch, ac and defrost switches, and knobs from the junk yard. I am going to do an led swap, but I didn't want screw up the ones in my car so picked up the spares from the junkyard. I'll post some pics after I get them in and start working on them.
