You can kinda see the ring around the black base of the needles, where you can see through to the stock gauges.

Here's some at night:

The ring "looks" blue but I haven't turned my actual lights on, I was just testing the overlays to make sure they were wired: http://www.deevlo.com/photoalbum/dis...?album=7&pos=5

Here's with the stock lights on underneath:

You can see the green a bit more. It's not THAT bad, but I'm REALLY picky.

What's worse is when those blue gauges are in, and the odometer is still green.... I'd rather it all be the same color...

I have a pic somewhere after I changed the odometer to blue.... but I can't find it. I bought some electroluminescent (EL) film/tape/stuff... and with a little soldering/sanding, I made it blue for my SVT... and red for a friend's '05 ZX3 (SVTs are WAY easier, because the gauges are already EL panels).
