    Hey all.

    I was going to buy the reverse glow gauges for my car but I was wondering if instead of having the orange speedo needles, is there a place I can buy a different color? I was thinking Red.... Just let me know.... thanks!

    If you have to pop them off anyway, why not paint them?

    I don't see why not :dunno:. Just a light coat with some hobby enamel paint I'd say. Unless you have an airbrush.

    just FYI, i messed around with that shit when i had a mini truck. You can change the color of the needles by taking them off, sanding down the backs of them and painting them only on the backside. keep in mind its a PITA to get the needles back where they need to be.
