    Default Playing with Dash Needle Led Colours

    Had a few ideas today in work on what to do with my dash, led wise.

    Took it all apart tonight and sanded down the fuel and temp needles. Had already done the rev and speedo counters.

    Change a few leds to different colours just to see how it looks.

    I must admit I do like the green needles. Blue is nice but green gets my vote. Will change all of them over when I order new leds.

    For the moment it may help others to see what the contrast looks like against white/red dials.

    Hope you like the pics

    Thanks lads.

    Im also going to change the main clock leds to a half and half setup. i.e each main clock half green leading into white,

    Not seen it done before and want to try it.

    Could end up looking crap but hey you never know

    I was waiting for the ford reference lol. Thanks for your post though. I do like to experiment with different colours just to see how it turns out.

    Didn't get you wrong mate and thanks for your comments on my dials

    I take all responses as a positive

    I went from blue and white to red and white and do like the change but I'm my own worst enemy as I get bored too quickly
