I'm sure that wasn't a normal fill-up. I've done this as well. You just fill it up no matter how much you currently have, so it makes it much more accurate when placing the needle at F rather than guessing where it should be without filling up.

So if I understand correctly all you do to set the needles is move them in the direction they need to go?? And if I get blue bulbs ad paint my needles white they will glow blue at night and white in the day when the lights are off? I've got the black background for my cluster btw

In order to set the needles you have to take them off the pin and adjust them accordingly. If you just move them while still on the pin they will just go right back to where they were. And I would assume that by painting the needles white they would light up whatever color the bulbs are. That combo would look pretty sick!!! Keep us posted!
