Now think about what you just said and imagine what the value of my car would be, with all of the work I've done with that. - that will blow your mind.

EXACTLY ! canít imagine !

Get us some pics and some words on the finished product.

I hope to apply power to mine today, if a JY run doesnít happen and should see how the new bulbs work out with the SMD LEDs.

You guys have to realize that it takes me quite some time to do these. I don't know when I started the thread but we can see when post 1 was. For me to do one for you would cost you too much because of the hours involved. Granted- I have the design I know works now, so that will save atleast half of the time. Either way it would cost too much for you while I would still be making fractions of what I make when I'm tuning. I'll do it if you want, but I would expect no less than 4-500 probably.

It looks good and thank for the ideas on the Needles.

Wow is about the only word that describes it.

Lol rip off haha funny. Money is no problem for me. I would understand it being 4 to 500 hundred dollars because of all the time put in it. I have a foot of those LED strips in them and then the plug ins. I'll do the needles over the summer and just that alone took me about I would say 4 hours I think because of finding the right spots to get everything lit up right and then wiring everything and putting it back in and re-configure the speedometer needle and that's time. So, in the end, it's worth it, but, if you have no idea on how to do this and don't have the time, then you better have the money if you really want it done. Just saying . Looking good JP7 but too much light for me if I did that I would less it up on the LEDs but overall you did a great job.

I have 6 positive/negative leads with resistors (474 ohms) for the needles, and 2 positive/negative leads for the backlighting. All of them are soldered together, and I soldered the tips to a little socket that goes into one of the stock illumination spots. I measured the current last night at .48 amps. I'm using 20 gauge wire for most of this, that should be safe.

I'm sure you can offer a better cluster for less cost and with less time.
