Hey question, I have the how to on how to put the needle back on calibrated, but why do they need to be calibrated? When you take the battery of it's terminal the needles go down to the stop points, so could you just put them back on at the stop points and it would take off where it left?

no because the the needle is used to make contact with the stop point atleast on mph and rpm and without the needle it would continue to move further on the temp and fuel i dont know though

Who would be interested in buying everything needed to change the color of their svt gauges? Different colors would be available and would include the overlay and transparent sheet ready to go into their cars.
