looks good, but it seems to have "hotspots" where the light is brighter than the rest

its not very bright, actually just a **** hair darker than stock. I really like it, nice soft glow. There are really no bright spots, some spots are darker than others just because of the way the internals are on the gauges. Overall tho it looks really decent. I just picked up a nikon point and shoot, it was $100 at BB. Ill take some shots tonight!

Alright gents, got some new pics here along with my deck install. Heat Shrink Butt Splice FTW!!! hahaha lol

The lights work with the dimmer to, so I can turn them down, not that they are bright, I think there perfect at full dim. if that makes sense! LOL

Also, the new white gauges look great with my pod gauges as they are the same now, It looks really good I am happy with how it came out!

With out using plugins you can get much more even and vivid results.

My 03 (I chose amber)




My 04 (I chose blue)

Please tell me you didn't chop up your vent for that voltmeter... I could have hooked you up with an ABS panel like mine...



... but you'd need a smaller voltmeter than you have now.

How did you manage to keep the needles red with the blue led back lighting?

Looks like you have a few hot spots like mine, but I'll bet you can see everything a lot better.
Somebody needs to come down here & help me clean my garage out so I can get my truck in there to do my cluster in blue!
