    Hey Sommer86, I got in on the GB and ordered the needles too.

    I know I discuss this with you about the back lighting of the overlays but I forgot. I'd like to keep the factory lighting in red will I need to get red leds for the overlay?

    These are really cool, and I LOVE the way they look. But what about the little caps? Is there anyway to make the needles and cap all one piece so that the caps will light up with color too? Some foreign cars do that, looks pretty cool. Or maybe just colored ones to match the needles, or is that up to us to just paint them?

    If you want to swing by my place I have the new boxes... No hike for me today, either have an old hernia acting up (I had two operated on 10 years ago but it felt weird the other day) or stomach flu. Haven't eaten in a couple days

    All my interior lights are white led's, including the speedo backlighting, but idk if I wanna go white or break it up with blue.

    Thanks, Koda!!

    I'd say to go blue or white (I'm biased, white is my fave). Clear (to me) is just boring. Light also seems to escape easier and you just wont see it against the overlay....stock OR aftermarket.

    I'm trying yet ANOTHER design tweek that wont be ready until next week...i'll let you all know how it goes.

    same here, all my interior leds are white (wit the exception of the fogs and asr switch which are actually blue) and it gives off that aqua blue color so i decided to go wit the blue needles over the clear or white. ill post up pics when i get a chance to put them in

    That's just great! You wait just after the GB then you post this statement? I hope it ain't nothing I'm interested in.
