    Default Playing with Speedo Needles again

    Tried something a bit different with the speedo needles.

    Used green for the needles but was too green,

    Decided to place one white led and one green on each needle to lighten the green a bit.

    Looks great at night and day.

    Won't be everyones cup of tea but I like em

    Thoughts welcomed, good or bad.

    Thanks chum. Yep I agree. Two green leds either side of the needles was just too much

    Thanks mate. Red needles on white dials looks great too. It was how I started off before sanding them down. Very Audi like.

    Ah you mean mixing the red and white together. Tell you what I have red leds here too. I will do one dial tomorrow as I have a day off so we can see if it really comes out pink or not lol

    Thanks also Gaz . I did think I was going to get a lot of bad comments as there are a few colours there but so far so good
