5) Separate the housing from everything and prepare to paint it completely red using Krylon Fusion red paint as shown in the picture above. The purpose of doing this is to prevent the white housing from drowning the red light. Paint the housing for best results.

That is a tight mod man. You should submit it to the How To section to score some more respect. Nice truly nice man.

The year of the contour was unsure.. I grapped a set from two contours and each seems different years. I would say at least 96 - 98.

I could try different colors as well. Perhaps I will change the lights, needles and repaint housing blue and post the results. Anyone else who would like to post there own results that would be great also!
