My new instrument cluster

So I have a svt and I hate the stock green glow of the instrument cluster. I based my work off of this website http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=238966 I still need to do the odometer but it's a start

This is what it looks like in the daytime


This is what it looks like at night

I got the odometer done. The whole process was pretty easy. It took me about 1.5 hours for everything

DANG! i love the red odometer! how did you do it? resetting, and recalibrating the gauages was the worst part of this for me.

I used it as inspiration. I removed the white backing bellow the two pieces of glass with a razor blade. Then all I did was use that as a template and cut out a white sheet of regular printer paper and a red plastic transparency sheet to be the same size. I inserted it all back in. The white sheet is on top of the red sheet

nice. that works too. the led lighting would be a brighter, more defined color. but that's cool [thumbup]
