    Well I got a set of Speed Hut - EL Glo gauges to put over my stock ones. They are going to light up blue like the Cobalt2 gauges from Autometer. I don't know what to do with the needles though. I'm going to have 2 Cobalt2 gauges under my CD player eventually and they have bright red needles that light up for them. So I want to go that route with the stock needles. I'm not sure how to go about doing that though...Right now they are orange. Can I just get some transparent red paint and paint them to make them red? Also how can I get them to light up bright? Do they have a single bulb that lights up the needles?
