I'm sorry I don't have the scan anymore. It was done on my work computer. You can scan and print at kinkos. Shouldn't be too much

i wonder if there is anyway to actually change the EL lighting or whatever it is to a different color and just using white paper, i think it would look much cleaner than using a transparency

The clear sheet is about the same thickness as a sheet of paper. I got it from a local craft store named hobby lobby. I haven't found a way to change the color of the EL.

You said something about there being a gray color showing up on the scan, can they get rid of that at Kinkos as well? I'm pretty content with the way the gauges look (minus the color) so I wouldn't be doing anything to the scan in photoshop.

Rep added :)
