any clever ideas on how to do the redline rpm blue? im doing a blue theme with my truck and i cant get blue lights to light up behind the heater controls and what not and the a/c button writing is green no matter what unless i take the little light out of the bottom and it just doesnt light up.. i want to do the lights behind there blue or white but cant find any that fit. they're a different size then the I94 bulbs in the gauge cluster

Looks great!

And a suggestion...You can find some awesome neon nailpolish colors that would probably look good.

dont ask me how I know...

What all is not working? Everything or just the speed needle? Check that you connected everything up correctly. Also check the little spring in the back of the needle make sure that it is ok, but other than that I have no clue man. Hope you get everything sorted out.

only the speed needle is messed up. i relieved i set it while i was moving at a set speed, i thought thats what i needed to do not set it at a stand still and then check it.. so ill check for a spring in the morning. i just hope this is fixable and i didnt ruin something... and i got one led flickering on one of the 360 bulbs!! bad luck i guess lol

Very nice Idea, I actually have thought of doing this same thing. I am planning on adding a few gauges in the future, I plan on getting the vdo vision series gauges. They will match the cluster perfect AFTER I repaint the needles in my cluster!!!!

You need a gps to get the accurate mph, and something to get a rpm reading like a scangauge or something similar.
