How did you make the gauges glow red? What kind of bulbs did you use? Because the gauges glow from the sides of them and I couldnt get them to glow blue. because it wasnt bright enough.

Very nice indeed ! I'm looking for a ranger that I can do this to again, if anyone is selling a 1994 and down ranger please let me know (I don't have a lot of money) but I thought I would ask here if it's an ext. cab that's a big + !

Thanks,

Troy.

Look at my build thread for the wheels, I paid i think it was 250.00 - The truck was NOT running and looked like crap though, again... see my build thread to see what I did to the truck.

On a side note, looks like I am picking up another Ranger!! Currently looking for a 1987-1998 Ranger any engine besides the 3.0L (might as well have a 4 cyl) lol.

Stay tuned!

Troy.
