Custom Gauge Faces
I was thinking about installing high output LED light bulbs in my dash, but I figured while I was in there I could customize the gauges themselves. I've heard there is a way to actually PAINT the clear parts that make up the "dials". For example, I would like to paint a redline on my tachometer, maybe in the realm of 5500 rpm? I;ve heard you carefully scrape away some kind of film on the back of the face and then lay down a special clear paint? Am I correct on this? And if so, can I get pointers?
Also I need to know what steps to take to disassemble the dash.
How many light bulbs fit in the back of the cluster and what color should I use? Can I target certain areas certain colors? Like speedo/tach = green, volt/temp/oil/fuel = blue?
