I think it looks clean and would like mine done. However I would also want my radio, AC controls and 4x4 switch done and don't have the time to travel down south for this.

It's a great project to do. Had Jerez help me with mine. Makes them look way. Better and much brighter. I would tell everyone to get this done.

True, I have an aftermarket radio that can glow any color so I set it to blue. A/C controls I changed to blue, clock I did also. I also did lil extra and did some pilot lighting.

All you need to do to take the orange paint off is some nail polish remover.

It is pretty simple. I did mine with a White background with blue needles, all you need is acrylic paint. But this threat is from blackshirts, not trying to thread jack.

I've seen some not paint them and it looks okay, but I think with the white paint it would look better. And it's easy to do.

Don't worry about it Casey your just helpin out.

I really recommend blackshirts' work. He did a excellent job on my dash and he is a terrific person. He did not take long at all to do the work and left everything looking very clean. He's very friendly and knows what he's doing. The needles are ridiculously easy to paint as all you need is nail polish remover, acrylic white paint, and a fine paint brush. The materials cost me $3 in total to paint needles and it looks way better than that orange caca. I'll post some more pics of my interior so you guys can see what it looks like, as I have my radio blue and white as well.
