They are a little flawed; one dark blue line at the top of the speedo, and the numbers and lines don't match up exactly with the curve of the bezel. But other than that for 30$ I like em. And if you buy them......don't be retarded like me. Read the directions and don't remove the needles.....

They look good! I would get some blue LED's to light it up and it would look a lot better.

Those don't look too bad especially for 30 bucks. It would've been funny if that blue line was on the 65mph mark, like 80's cars with 55mph highlighted.

Your temp and tach needles look a little dark, is there a bulb out?

Possibly, I'm going to experiment with different LEDs for the needles and also switching all the switches to blue LEDs.

Oh and there's no lights lighting that up from the back. Idk what it is but it's just an overlay and the lights are inside the overlay. It's got two wires off the face

The overlay is an electroluminescent glow (el-glow) sheet. There's a layer of phosphor that makes it glow.

I always thought it would be neat if someone used white needles from a Contour and use colored LEDs for the illumination, white/clear by day and whatever color at night.

Dude, you going to FocusFest?

Gauges look good, I'd say there's definitely a bulb out on the left side.
